    Someone on this site or on arboristsite connected an electric motor/gear pump in parallel with the existing gas engine & pump. Use gas or use electric. He had check valves too small and got heating and overload issues, but the fix is simple, larger checks. Great idea, and what i paln to do eventually. 120v is limited to about 1 to 2 hp, but 240 volts at 3 to 5 hp would be great package.

    If you already have a gas engine machine that seems like a real good addition-watch ebay for power packs?
