The newest addition to our pump line, the Baby Buffalo is a high performing pressure pump that can push water up to a storage basket for later use, or attach directly to a sprinkler hose for immediate, effortless irrigation.
Made of durability tested, mostly plastic parts that can be replaced cheaply within minutes, and with a unique geometry that make treadling lighter and easier, the Baby Buffalo is an attractive, long-lasting option.
This pump was designed in conjunction with IDEO.
