FRANKLIN Vertical Multistage Pump 7m3 | Max Head 60M | Mains OR Solar |



At Commodore Australia we are always looking to pair our solar expertise with the highest quality of pumping products on the market. We understand that when you purchase a pump you want it to work exactly as advertised, for it to last and to have someone to call if you require any assistance. We offer unlimited support no matter how many years after you’ve purchased from us to make sure you get maximum bang for your buck.

For this reason, we are excited to welcome the Franklin range of pumps to our extensive line-up. Established in 1962 to support the Australian water industry, Franklin Electric was founded in 1944 in Bluffton, Indiana, USA and has expanded from a small motor manufacturing company into a leading global provider of complete water and fuelling systems.

Package includes:

  • Franklin AC Vertical Multistage Pump 6VR08
  • Solar Pump Inverter drive  with AC Back up
  • 2.2kW Solar Array consisting of 8 x 275w solar panels (optional extra).
  • 10m Solar Cable with Connectors fitted
  • Solar DC isolator
  • Instruction Manual and Quick Connection guide

Optional Extras: 

  • Railing/connectors take all the hard work out of building your own stand, they connect to the solar panels and bolt straight onto your own stand, they are also designed to be screwed onto a corrugated iron roof. See data sheet in ‘Data sheets’ tab above.
  • Solar panel stand. Using Clenergy ST3 Ground mount. See data sheet in ‘Data sheets’ tab above.
  • Pressure switch, required if you are filling a tank that is some distance from where you’re pumping from and want the pump to turn on and off automatically. This eliminates the need to run a wire to the tank for automatic operation.

*If necessary, the flow rate and minimum head height can be reduced by reducing the max running frequency from the solar pump drive to slow the motor RPM. The VFD based design of the pump inverter also reduces the start-up power for those on limited power supplies or off-grid systems, meaning smaller sized generators can be used to power the pump directly if solar is not available.  Please contact us for more info.
