Australian Pump Industries has released Aussie fire chief, powered by a Kubota diesel engine. The fire chief is regarded as the lightweight portable fire pump and is a winner of government contracts both in Australia and overseas.
The Kubota 6.5HP air cooled diesel engine is a perfect match for the Chiefs’ high performance characteristics. The Aussie fire chief, pumps more water at high pressure and really performs with a diesel drive that provides plenty of torque and horse power.
The fire chief offers users over 75 metres, that is more than 100 psi, matched with a high flow of up to 450 litres per minute. Apart from that, it features good self priming characteristics with the ability to draft water from depths of as low as 7.6 metres.
Those performance characteristics make it ideal for not only high pressure fire fighting but also irrigation, high pressure water transfer or even machinery wash down applications.
The fire chief produces so much pressure that it is the choice of the rural fire service in NSW and many other Australian fire fighting authorities and government departments.
Kubota fire pump can be used for a wide range of applications varying from serious fire protection to stock yard flushing.
The Aussie fire chief in its Kubota powered form comes in a heavy duty full steel roll frame with anti-vibration rubber mounts. Like all Aussie quick prime self priming pumps, the fire chief is backed by a 5 year extended warranty that is free of charge to consumers.
The big fire fighting pump’s unique design means major fuel savings for users, with more litres of water being pumped per litre of fuel than competitors.
The fire chief owes these characteristics to its big belly body and huge 7 inch diameter impeller that are balanced to provide maximum pumping efficiency.
Kubota diesel engines are manufactured by one of Japans leading diesel engine and tractor manufacturers and are regarded by both construction and agricultural users.
