AUSSIE BOOSTS PRODUCTION FIRE PUMP

With forecasts continuing this summer of extreme temperatures and dry conditions, farmers and home owners need to keep prepared. Australian Pump has bumped its firefighting pump numbers up to ensure adequate supplies to firefighting authorities, farmers and consumers.

“The Aussie Fire Chief and our Mr T Twin Impeller pumps have sold in record numbers this season,” said Aussie Pumps’ Brad Farrugia.

The company’s flagship, the Aussie Fire Chief, is widely regarded as the world’s best lightweight portable fire pump. With the ability to draft water through a vertical lift of 7.6 metres the pump offers unbeatable priming characteristics. It produces excellent flow/pressure combinations making it ideal for spot firefighting and household protection.

“Many customers are moving to diesel drive versions of the Chief,” said Farrugia. “For example in our big Mr T Twin Impeller product range, we are seeing a major increase in sales of Yanmar diesel drive versions,” he said.

All Honda powered pumps are backed by Honda Australia’s unique GX engine 3 year warranty. “We put ourselves in the position of the user when we are designing the equipment,” said Farrugia.

A free Aussie Fire Survival Guide is also for anybody setting up a firefighting pump. It covers not only the basic steps required to prepare a property for the coming fire season, but information on pump selection and setting up a reticulation system . “The Survival Guide can be the difference between the saving of a property, periling lives or losing much-loved pets,” said Farrugia.
