Namoi Farm Spray (NFS) Agribusiness displayed a range of products from Australian Pump Industries at AgQuip 2011.  

The Gunnedah-based family-owned NFS was promoting the new Aussie Scud, the Aussie Smart Pump and the Aussie Fire Chief at the show.  

On display for the first time at AgQuip, the Aussie Scud received good feedback from visitors.  

Featuring an ergonomically designed frame for maximum protection and user-friendly operation, the Aussie Scud pressure cleaners incorporate a 4000psi, 15 LPM ‘Big Berty’ Bertolini triplex pump powered by a genuine Honda engine.  

NFS’ Michael Casey comments that the big wheels and new design make it so easy to move around.  

Aussie Scud pressure cleaners are part of a new range of machines designed to provide more cost-effective, water-saving cleaning solutions with minimal environmental impact.  

The Aussie Smart Pump is a range of 30% glass filled polyester pumps developed specifically for use with liquid fertilisers in broadacre farming. According to Casey, the ability of the Aussie Smart Pumps to handle corrosive liquids, liquid fertilisers and other chemicals with ease makes them perfect for farm use.  

NFS understands the need for reliable and robust pumps that are able to handle liquid fertilisers to improve crop yields and quality.  

Key features of the Aussie 2” and 3” poly pumps:  

  • 6.5HP Honda engine 
  • 2” pumps capable of producing flows up to 835 LPM with heads as high as 37 metres 
  • Stainless steel fasteners provided as standard 
  • Standard options include EPDM O-rings, check valves and other elastomers suitable for most agrochemical liquid applications 
  • Viton seals available for even more caustic chemicals 
  • Backed by Aussie 5-year warranty     
NFS also displayed the Aussie Fire Chief at the AgQuip 2011 exhibition. The Aussie Fire Chief is a range of simple, robust high performance engine drive self priming pumps.  

Available with a unique 5-year pump end warranty, the pumps offer 450 LPM maximum flow and delivery heads in the standard single impeller version of up to 75 metres.  

Casey adds that its big belly body and huge impeller allow more water through the pump, providing excellent flow/pressure characteristics.  

Aussie Pumps Gold Dealers, NFS was supported at AgQuip 2011 by Aussie Pumps’ Dean Fountain to help visitors with pump selection, set up and general pump advice.
