With the ‘Big Dry’ spread­ing even into the Hills dis­trict, prop­erty own­ers face an ex­pen­sive win­ter hand feed­ing stock and buy­ing in wa­ter. Aussie Pumps is out to help own­ers man­age their wa­ter re­sources with their range of trans­fer pumps.

“We un­der­stand the huge amount of wa­ter needed to keep an­i­mals healthy. It’s not only the cost of buy­ing in wa­ter that’s a big con­cern, but hav­ing a re­li­able source,” said Aussie Pumps Prod­uct Man­ager, Brad Far­ru­gia. “This is­sue drove us to de­velop our ‘Drought Buster’ pumps for ef­fi­cient wa­ter trans­fer,” he said.

Mov­ing wa­ter be­tween dams to max­imise wa­ter stor­age and rain­fall col­lec­tion can min­imise the ef­fect of drought. Aussie Pump’s big QP 4” pump is ideal for this as it moves large vol­umes ef­fi­ciently.

The Aussie’s 4” QP402 is driven by a pow­er­ful Yan­mar 10hp elec­tric start diesel en­gine. Aussie Pump Yan­mar pow­ered prod­ucts are thor­oughly match tested, with pump de­sign en­gi­neers work­ing closely with Yan­mar to guar­an­tee that the pumps will pro­vide first class per­for­mance and longevity in Aus­tralia’s tough ru­ral op­er­at­ing con­di­tions.

The big pumps de­liver up to 1600 lpm and have the abil­ity to self-prime up to 8 me­tres of ver­ti­cal lift. They fea­ture big, open high SG cast iron im­pellers suit­able for pass­ing small solids in sus­pen­sion.

The pumps are backed by Aussie Pumps’ unique 5 year guar­an­tee and the en­gines come with Yan­mar’s 2 year war­ranty.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on the Aussie QP range is avail­able on­line or from the Aussie Pump dis­trib­u­tor net­work.
