I would like you to know we are over joyed with the performance of our new pumps. From set up to operation it's truly been a delightful experience, and while these pumps have only been on-line for a few months they look as if they just came out of their crates...super clean and super quiet.

Best pump I’ve ever used… hands down…...and I’ve used them all; Graco, ARO & Lincoln. This pump is nothing like them. The Yamada pump has been online for well over a year 24/7 without a single issue. I would buy more Yamada pumps.”

Just a note to let you know we installed the new pump this afternoon and it bolted right up (to the old Lincoln standpipe). It started up slow because it was pumping so well. We only saw it stroke 2-3 times which is an improvement from the old unit. The ink pump is working fine since its installation and we like it very much...in fact, we intend to buy several more next year!

The Yamada InkPRO® pumps we installed earlier this year (2005) have performed very well. These pumps are designed and built to last without a lot of maintenance.

Compared to our older ink pumps the maintenance procedure on the Yamada InkPRO® is a piece of cake. The fact that you do not have to remove the pump from the mounting hardware saves our maintenance crews time and effort and the ease with which we can now change out seals is really great.

I have purchased 2 InkPRO® pumps (tote & drum, mid 2006) and they work great! Chris @ Air Flo is very easy to work with and very prompt and knowledgable. That's why I've ordered my third Yamada InkPRO® pump!

I purchased a Yamada InkPRO® pump in June of 2004 to replace my long time favorite Lincoln Pile Driver series pump (which had failed). I had received some great reviews on the InkPRO® model 881030 (type 200) from my ink sales rep (who suggested that I try the InkPRO®). The price was very competitive to the Lincoln model (that I had been using) so I decided to try it.
When I received the pump I was impressed with how well it was built. After installing and running the pump I am impressed on how well and how quietly it performs. After runninig the pump for almost a year it would hesitate on the upstroke so I called my Air Flo sales rep and a few days later he and the Yamada service technicians were in my plant and they replaced a small o-ring. The pump has worked perfectly for 3.5 years now. If and when I buy my next pump it will also be a Yamada InkPRO® from Air Flo Spray Equipment Company.
