Submersible Hybrid Pump | 18m3 | Max Head 38m | 1.8kW | Solar Workhorse Series 4SP14-6


SKU: workhorse-18-38 Category:


Commodore is excited to welcome the Workhorse range of Hybrid Solar pumps. Our strongest range of Hybrid Solar pumps. The 4SP14-6 submersible AC pump package is coupled with a powerful VFD based solar pump inverter, giving the benefits of solar, as well as mains and generator capabilities. This means that the pump can run all day from solar and automatically switch to mains or generator power at night, with the added ability to blend the solar with AC power when there is insufficient sunlight.

It has a capability of 18,000/hr and a maximum head of 38m. To work out exactly how much water you’ll get, be sure to check the flow at your total head height in the flow chart.


Remote Control Unit – Brand New Addition

For the first time, Commodore is providing the option of remote control monitoring for our Workhorse range of pumps. What does this mean for you?

  • Users can turn their pump on or off from the click of a button on their phone or computer
  • Users have full access to real time data, and historical data such as solar input, temperature and AC output frequency – please see the photo attached above
  • Commodore can provide comprehensive advice and guidance for any questions users have about their solar pumping system

This is an absolute gamechanger at Commodore, and for only an additional $480, Australian’s now have access to some of the best in customer usability and comprehensive performance data.

  • 10m Solar Cable with Connectors fitted
  • Solar DC isolator
  • Instruction Manual and Quick Connection guide
  • Finance available

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.
  • Clenergy 8 ST2 panel pole mount stand.
  • 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.
  • You can find these extras in Pump accessories – Bore cap, stainless steel hanging cable, dam floats and more.

*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.
