Hello,

I have a older bane clene base unit. The pump went out last night while cleaning my own carpets. I mean the pump housing must have been cracked because the opposite end of the pulley broke off, and part was of the broken edge was rusty and part was not.

Now I want to replace it with a different pump (cat pump, or other). What rpm does the electric motor put out? What pulley size?

For the pump recommended or possible psi and gpm.

-- I know they are not big and bad so if I can get a better one for the same $ as replacing the pump please tell me.

Thanks,

Brad

I am not sure of the speed your motor runs at or what the gear ratio is, but here is a link to get a new pump.

http://www.pressurewasherauthority.com/cat--pressure-washer-pumps--general-pump-solid.html

I recommend, depending on the rpm's the pump runs at, one of the following. I would get at least a 3.0 gpm pump minimum for a single wand unit and a 4.0+ gpm for dual wand units.

For 1450 rpm's or less model #TX1812S17............$254.99

For 1750 rpm's or less model #EZ3042S................$330.99

For 3400 rpm's model # TX1510S34......................$264.99

Brad,

The Banes all use (I believe) a 1/2hp motor for the pump, and allow about 4 amps draw for it, the electric heater (drawing 12 A more) is on the same circuit. You're not going to be able to get the high output pumps Todd mentioned to work without a much larger motor, meaning you will have to add another cord, or delete the electric heater (or delete the heater and add a Little Giant!). With your motor, around 350 psi at 1.3 gpm is about the best you can hope for. Electric machines are always full of tradeoffs.

I live close to THE bane clean, it's the wildest place I've ever seen, it looks like they built and decorated it in 73' and never ever updated! Lol but they are a big company still running. I've even bought some product from them. Idk much about theyre machines though, you could maybe buy a Mytee electric water pump as a temporary/permant replacement solution..?

His is probably the older unit like most are that have one motor that drives the blower and the pump.
Go onto bane's web site and look at the parts lists. They have all there parts on there and the prices.

This is true. I did not realize that you only had 1/2 horsepower to work with. The pumps I mentioned use between 2 and 4 horsepower depending on how much pressure is being used.

If so, he will also have a similar (more or less) limitation, as the blower hogs most of the horsepower.

Although I don't run a Bane, I personally run a 1/2hp motor direct coupled to a Hypro 5315C-X twin piston pump. The amps are about 5, and I can get close to 1.5 gpm at 500 psi. Aside from greasing the bearing once in a while, it just works, although I know the Hypros aren't real popular. It fits just fine along with twin 3-stage vacs in the bottom of my custom Mytee.

No...not true..he has the older model..this is pre 3d version..one motor only..runs at 1725 rpm is a 1 and 1/2 horse model with 2 belts..you can just remove the rotary vane pump, and replace with either an all inclusive unit like the pumptec, hypro, just watch the amps..or go with a general pump and size a pulley for a 1-1 ratio and one that is rated for the rpm the motor runs at...I have one of each if you're interested..both new never mounted
