Australians have been hit with an early bushfire season this summer. Australian Pump Industries ‘Fire Ready’ programme for 2018 continues to help people protect their property, farms, livestock and assets this summer..
Aussie Pumps’ Product Manager, Brad Farrugia observes that the devastating
drought caused by a dry winter has also increased the risk of extreme bushfires
with scrub, trees and general vegetation going tinder dry.
Aussie Pumps’ genuine Honda powered Aussie Fire Chief and the mighty ‘Mr
T’ high pressure twin impeller pumps are effective tools in bushfire prevention
programmes with their proven firefighting performance in the field.
The Aussie Fire Chief is a robust self priming fire pump designed to outperform
both single and twin impeller pumps in firefighting operations. Key features
include maximum flow of 500 LPM, maximum delivery head of 75 metres (over 100 psi
pressure); Honda GX160 or GX200 engine with recoil and electric start options; fast
priming; and massive suction lift of 7.6 metres.
Aussie’s Mr T high pressure twin impeller pumps are recommended for
applications requiring more pressure. Delivering heads up to 95 metres, the
pump is powered by a Honda 9hp or 13hp heavy duty industrial petrol engine and
comes with a full roll frame.
An electric start option additionally ensures the user can instantly
begin firefighting operations just by turning a key.
