I would not rely on a Thornado for any fire emergency. Mine broke the starter cord on the second pull. Since then it has seized up in humid weather and has been impossible to get parts for.

Good for the price, not perfect

Very bad English and unclear instructions are enclosed with my order. Is there a “how to” tutorial available

Appreciate the detailed review provided, very helpful.
I am currently in the market for a fire fighting pump, under a demanding situation can the Thornado be trusted?

Quite simply NO. I’ve had the 2”, twin impeller, fire pump attached to a Diesel engine running three impact sprinklers from a 1.5m lift. After less than 40 hours use one of the impellers disintegrated, seized the pump, and stalled the Diesel engine. Just as well it wasn’t during a fire! Their fine print says it’s not to be used where critical running is required or where faults may lead to property or personal loss - not good for a “fire pump”.

Thanks, I ended up with a Davey twin impeller. Sorry to hear the troubles you’ve had, frustrating. Not wanting to brag, but letting you know the Davey has performed very well. I am running 13 x 20mm butterfly sprinklers and 2 x 25mm fire hoses. The run from the tanks to the house is 75m over a rise of 2.5m. Then onto the house rooftop which is 6 m up.
Obviously the Davey is a few dollars, I paid $1095 at Hills Irrigation.
Hope this helps.
