Farmers may now have more hope as okada engine now works with an resurfaced
The pump is affixed to the motorcycle’s engine and power from it enables the gadget to draw up water
Many people were wowed by it on Facebook, saying that it is indeed a show of how creative man could be to solve problems.
Photos of a pump that is powered by the engine of a motorcycle have resurfaced online and drawn comments from people.
Re-posting the photos weeks ago online, a Facebook page named Jethro described the innovation as one that would go a long way to help farmers.
According to the page, one can power the machine with a litre of petrol to pump out as much as 40,000 litres of water.
Serving dual functions, the pump can be used as mobile irrigation on farmlands and also as an aide to pump water out of the well.
Chief among what people asked was: why would a person go that far to make a machine that is meant to carry a maximum of two passengers take eight people?
Tweeps also noted that making body modifications to a bike to handle such without increasing its engine’s horsepower to a commensurate level is very unsafe.
