The ones like Wiindflower recommended are pretty decent cheap pumps. Amazon is another good source. Those pumps are made in China and the engines are Chinese knockoffs of a Honda 5.5 H.P. Honda engine. The quality isn't quite as good but even most of the parts will interchange with Honda. I have used those pumps and for just a bit over $ 200.00 they are ok and at that price you can just throw them away if they have problems.

Going up in quality a bit my preference would be a Koshin. They are Japanese made and use a real Honda engine. I don't know where you can buy them locally but you can google Koshin and give them a call and I am sure Lenny can tell you were to get one. Wacker is also excellent if you want to spend big bucks. Honda also makes high quality pumps. Your local dealer should be able to get you one.
