Australian Pump Industries has dramatically ramped up production of Kubota diesel powered pumps at their 2.5-hectare facility in Castle Hill.

Aussie Pumps manufactures the complete range of top quality Kubota diesel engine powered pumps including fire fighting pumps, 3” and 4” transfer pumps, and specialist tanker pumps. Savings from the large scale production are being passed on to customers with Aussie dealers reporting increased interest in the range.

Aussie Pumps’ product manager Brad Farrugia comments that the company is committed to a cost down program that delivers top value to their customers, especially Aussie farmers who are facing difficult conditions this season. Powered by 6HP and 9.5HP OC series Kubota engines, the pumps deliver great torque, economy, and performance.

The Kubota OC series engines use the ACTV (Advanced Cooling Three Vortex) system wherein the combustion chamber is oil cooled and the cylinder is air cooled. The ACTV system ensures the engines are quieter, have minimal vibration and run cooler, with the benefits leading to longer engine life and lower maintenance costs.

According to Farrugia, pump operators understand the benefits of diesel engines in terms of sustained performance, great torque and excellent fuel economy, which translate into significant savings for the operators who can move more water with less fuel, and also have the bonus of lower ongoing engine service costs.

The Kubota powered high pressure and high flow pumps range includes the award-winning Aussie Fire Chief. Considered Australia’s best engine drive portable fire pump, Aussie Fire Chief delivers more water at high pressure because of its huge ‘big belly’ body and 7½” diameter, single piece heavy duty impeller. The pump’s big 2” bolt-on flanged suction port lets more water into the pump, improving performance by reducing friction loss. Fire Chief fire pumps are powered by 6HP and 9.5HP Kubota diesel engines.

The Aussie range of Kubota powered pumps also includes 3” and 4” gushers, which are large pumps suitable for fast water transfer applications including tanker filling, dam water management and site dewatering. The electric start pumps come mounted in heavy duty galvanised steel frames and galvanised steel sub-bases with anti-vibration mounts.

Specialised tanker pumps manufactured by Aussie Pumps using Kubota engines are fitted with solenoids to enable remote control operation. Supplied on a galvanised base, the pumps are available in high pressure or high flow options, and are suitable for dust suppression and fast fill tanker applications.

Aussie Pumps has been able to achieve price reductions on these pumps, up to 25% on some models, by bulk buying diesel engines and substantially increasing production volumes.

Similar to all Aussie Quik Prime pumps, the Kubota powered range comes with a free exclusive 5-year extended pump end warranty, while the engine is supported by Kubota Australia’s 2-year engine warranty.
