Debating whether to get a Little Giant 3-MD-MT-HC or Chugger. Went to the chugger website, which is confusing. When you click on the brewing pump, it shows specs for a 12 volt pump. Is this the pump plus motor? Do all chuggers have SS heads? I do not currently have a March pump, so I need the whole thing, motor and all. And what is the total cost? The Little Giant is being used by a lot of brewers with great success and has a much higher flow rate than smaller pumps, and sells for about 160 bucks new (total including shipping).

I was on the recieving end of the stainless pump head deal. Didn't get mine with the pumps when they came but as soon as I e-mailed I got them within three days free of charge.

I recently bought two Chugger Pumps w/ stainless steel heads shipped to be for $293 total! I thought that was a great deal.

SS INLINE BREWING PUMP
$139.00 x 2 = $278 = $15 S&H = $293 total

They shipped fast and I got them quick...still in the build process of my eHERMS, but I think that these will be the ticket!!!

What features are people deciding based on? The $139 doesn't seem to be cheaper than March so it must not be cost.

Its $139 for a SS-head chugger vs. a plastic head-March pump for $150-ish.

The SS-head is the big-decider here.

Yet they're fine with the Polysulfone impeller but not the polysulfone head?

Oh well, I guess I am late to this discussion... betting it's been had many times before around here.
