How does the plug-in hybrid pump work?
Inside the super-quiet hood is a PTclassic piston pump based on more than 30 years of well dewatering expertise. The pump is equipped with both a diesel engine and an electric motor. The plug-in hybrid is incredibly easy to operate. All you have to do is turn off the diesel engine with the ignition key, and then connect a 32 amp outlet to the electric motor plug.
Now the electric motor can be put into operation immediately with the star-delta switch, without having to change the drive belt. There is no need to align the motor or replace complete pumps on site.
