Bush­fire fight­ing ser­vices have joined with Aussie Pumps in warn­ing farm­ers and home own­ers of an early bush­fire sea­son this sum­mer! Fires have al­ready oc­curred in many ar­eas of New South Wales.

Aus­tralian Pumps ‘Fire Ready’ pro­gram for 2018 is up and run­ning to help peo­ple get pre­pared for what looks like a very dan­ger­ous sum­mer.

“The dry win­ter has brought not just a dev­as­tat­ing drought. It’s also brought the dan­ger of ex­treme bush­fires as scrub, trees and gen­eral veg­e­ta­tion has be­come tin­der dry”, said Aussie Pumps’ Prod­uct Man­ager, Brad Far­ru­gia. The com­pany has got a huge pro­gram on for gen­uine Honda pow­ered Aussie Fire Chief pumps and the mighty “Mr T” twin im­peller job.

The Aussie Fire Chief is a sim­ple, ro­bust, high per­for­mance en­gine drive, self prim­ing fire pump that out­per­forms both sin­gle and twin im­peller com­peti­tor pumps in a num­ber of ways. It boasts a 500 litre per minute max­i­mum flow, and of­fers a max­i­mum de­liv­ery head of 75 me­tres. That’s over 100 p.s.i. pres­sure!

It’s pow­ered by a Honda GX160 or GX200 en­gine with re­coil and elec­tric start op­tions. The pump also primes fast, and beats all com­peti­tors with a mas­sive suc­tion lift of 7.6 me­tres.

For ap­pli­ca­tions re­quir­ing more pres­sure, Aussie’s Mr T de­liv­ers heads to 95 me­tres.. It re­lies on a Honda 9 or 13hp heavy duty in­dus­trial petrol en­gine and comes with a full roll frame.
