120, 240 ECO ISLANDERS

UNDERSTANDING THE ECO ISLANDERS

In 1947, the Bennett Pump Company introduced the 120 Series ECO Islanders.  These Islanders were made for only four years.  How many were sold and why they were discontinued may never be known.  I have never seen one, and have only heard from one collector who owns one.  No parts for the lower part are available, but we do have parts for the head and some literature for them.  To see what they look like and look at the literature, click here.


In 1952, Bennett introduced the 240 Series Islanders.  These are the ones most collectors are familiar with.  Not many parts are available, but we do have some listed below.  We also have a great deal of literature for the 240s, look down the bottom of the page.

There are actually ten different ECO 240 Islanders.  Most of them are pictured in the literature below.

The head on any ECO Islander is almost identical to the head found on the ECO 97 and 98 meters. 

To see those parts just CLICK HERE.

 

For those of you who want a working unit but do not wish to repair it yourself, we offer a complete repair service.

Assuming you purchased a 97 or 98 head to put on your Islander, there is a one difference between the 97/98 head and the Islander head.  Instead a 1" pin on the base of the frame, you need to have this special spring.  They are not made anymore, but I do have a few used ones.  There is one other modification you will need to make, if you are buying this spring I'll tell you what it is.

Again assuming you are using a 97/98 head on your Islander, the Scuff Plate is different.  It should have this brass plate on it.

One more difference, the Islander head does not use the hook for the hose, it uses this on/off flip switch.
