With Australia's continuing dry conditions in many parts of the country farmers and professional water carters depend more and more on their self priming pumps for performance and reliability.

Aussie Pumps delivers more litres of water for less litres of fuel consumption making it cost efficient for both farmers and professional water tanker operators.

Aussie Pumps Product Manager John Whiteley says his company focuses on a range of big capacity pumps that outperform and out-feature the others. It also worked on improving suction capability to make it easier for water carters to draught water from creeks, streams or dams.

Aussie Pumps supplies a full range of both high pressure and high flow pumps for tanker applications. Even the Aussie Fire Chief, Australia's most fuel efficient fire pump, delivers up to 500 lpm flow when used in low pressure applications.

Gushers capable of loading and unloading tankers in double quick time are also part of the range. Whiteley says that with transfer pumps from 1 1/2" port size right through to 6" Aussie Pumps covers the entire spectrum of water carting from small hobby farmer 600 litre trailer mounts to huge mining haul road tankers that use big 4" and 6" pumps.

By focusing on high performance and minimum fuel economy, his company is able to deliver better outcomes for users in this important application.

Water carters value efficiency and fuel consumption above all other features. A high flow, high performance pump can add an additional 2 or 3 supply cycles per day by reducing loading and unloading times.

There are also major cost savings in fuel reduction generated with every load or discharge operation.

Aussie Pump has also focused on development of hydraulic drive pumps for professional tanker operators. These units do not rely on an integrated engine but rather supply of power is from the main truck engine, driving through a hydraulic pump off the PTO.
