Australian Pump Industries has introduced a new trolley mounted model of
their proven 31 LPM, 4,300 psi Python drain cleaning jetters. This big jetter is
currently available in a trailer mounted version for operator convenience.
The Python was developed by the pioneer of high pressure jetters in
Australia, Aussie Pumps, based on a need to clean blocked drains up to 9 inches
The new trolley mounted version of the powerful heavy duty Python jetter
features four heavy duty pneumatic tyre wheels facilitating ease of movement on
site. In a static configuration, the wheels can be removed and the frame locked
down onto the Ute tray or trailer bed with a unique Aussie Cobra Loc. A jetter
securing kit that ensures the machine doesn’t move during transit, the Cobra
Loc can be padlocked and protects the frame from stress during operation.
Key features of the big trolley mounted Python drain cleaning jetters include
a specially designed Cobra frame of galvanised steel; big 30-litre stainless
steel ‘break tank’ with float valve and low water cut out for pump protection; big
Bertolini pump driven by a 31 hp (Big Bloc) Vanguard engine with a big muffler
incorporating special baffle chambers to dampen noise even further; and a
unique four-year ‘Big Berty’ Bertolini warranty in addition to Briggs and
Stratton’s three-year guarantee for the engine.
Aussie Pumps’ Operations Manager, Hamish Lorenz explained that the big
Vanguard 31 hp engine was chosen for the Python because of its capacity and
features. The Vanguard has larger 895cc capacity, and develops more torque and
horsepower at lower engine speed. It also offers lower fuel and oil consumption.
A slower revving engine means less frequent oil changes and maintenance
schedules as well as a lower noise level.
The Vanguard engine comes with a heavy duty Donaldson Cyclopac air
cleaner, similar to the models used on earthmoving plant. Unlike other engine
manufacturers that use lawn mower-style air cleaners, Vanguard has standardised
on the huge 5″ centrifugal multistage industrial air cleaner to provide real
