Mr T, the twin impeller high pressure firefighting pump from Australian Pump Industries is now available in a new version featuring Kubota’s OC series
oil-air cooled diesel engine.
Launched five years ago, the big twin impeller pump is popular among the
farming, firefighting and contracting segments because of its unique package of
features and performance. Features such as the pump’s twin impellers and guide
vanes ensure long, trouble-free life while the high pressure performance of the
pump provides up to 200 lpm flow at 80m head, equivalent to over 100 psi.
The Honda models with their 9HP and 13HP petrol drive versions provide
consumers with a record suction lift of 7.6m, with the direct suction lift allowing
farmers to get water from creeks, eroded creek banks or wells for high pressure
water transfer, firefighting or even irrigation. Mr T offers a maximum flow of
up to 500 lpm and a shut off head in petrol drive at 135 psi or 95m vertical
Key features of the new Kubota version Mr T firefighting pumps include lower
performances proportional to the lower rpm of diesel compared to petrol engines;
heavy duty galvanised frame with gal sub base and anti-vibration mounts; 105kg
in weight; new Kubota engines running cooler and quieter, using less fuel;
and the OC95 engine with electric start as standard.
Aussie Pumps’ diesel drive pumps are efficient and economical, and come
with a free battery as part of the package.
