Metso Outotec is complementing its MD pump series with compact MD Low Rider pumps designed for easy replacements and upgrades. The new cost-efficient pump range is targeted especially for installations with limited space. “I am happy to see this new addition to our offering of Planet Positive MD series pumps. With its reduced mechanical footprint, the MD Low Rider is a perfect replacement for any pump type or make. It can be installed at a fraction of the usual site modification cost and complexity,” explains Timo Torvinen, Vice President of Pumps Business & Product Management at Metso Outotec.

The Metso Outotec MD Low Rider series covers sizes from MD400 to MD700, in high chrome and rubber options. All MD Low Rider pumps are designed to use the existing hydraulic components with a newer and shorter drive end.
