Australian Pump Industries  now offer the Aussie MQ600TD, a 6” trailer mounted Aussie trash pump with a 6,000 litre per minute flow (360,000 litres per hour) that can be set up quickly where needed.

When it comes to flood mitigation, fast deployment is vital to save a farm or town from disaster. Recent rains and the resulting devastation from rising flood water have provided a reminder to those living in low lying areas that preparation is key to coping with these emergencies.

Aussie Pumps' product manager Brad Farrugia asserts that this trailer mounted trash pump can be deployed fast, anywhere, anytime. 

"It’s simple to set up and get pumping quickly and that makes all the difference,” he says.

Like all Aussie self priming centrifugal pumps, the big 6” trailer mounted trash pump will self prime through a vertical lift of 7.6m. That self priming characteristic means that it primes first time, every time because of the huge tank built into the pump casings design.

The unique Aussie system enables the trash pump to purge itself quickly of air, once the engine is started, drawing water up through the suction line within a matter of minutes.

The Aussie trailer mounted flood mitigation pump will pass solids of up to 76mm in diameter. It is able to achieve this through a unique “non-clog” style impeller. An easy clean out port mounted on the front of the machine also enables the pump chamber to be cleaned of debris within a matter of minutes, in case of a pump “choke”.

“The big 6” Aussie trash pump is made to handle flood water that often contains debris. It is not just a top performer, but also ultra reliable," says Farrugia.

Featuring a Deutz air cooled 4 cylinder diesel engine that offers electric start and built in safety shut down equipment, the 6" trailer mounted Aussie trash pump will shutdown in the event of low oil pressure, high oil temperature, or V belt drive failure.

The Aussie MQ600TD 6" trailer mounted trash pump has optimal pressure characteristics, with the ability to move water through a vertical discharge lift of 46m, (64.9 p.s.i).

Sealing of these flood mitigation pumps is provided by an oil lubricated tungsten titanium carbide seal designed to handle even abrasive slurry type liquids. A control panel is shock mounted in a water resistant housing, and includes an hour meter, ammeter, tachometer and alternator failure light.

Aussie Pumps back the big 6” trailer mounted trash pump with a unique three year warranty.
