Fire pumps from Australian Pump Industries are being rushed to homeowners in Tasmania to help them save their property from the unexpected catastrophic fires sweeping the state.
The Hobart-based authorised Aussie Pump distributor, Brierley Hose took emergency action, pulling in stocks of Aussie fire pumps and firefighting hose kits by express transport. Brierley Hose handles the full range of Aussie Pump’s top quality petrol and diesel drive fire and transfer pumps.
John Brierley explains that they chose the Aussie Pump range because the products are simply better than other pumps in terms of performance, durability, warranty and price.
The Fire Chief, a highly popular model is a purpose-designed portable high pressure fire fighting pump that comes with a powerful Honda 5.5hp industrial petrol engine in its standard version. Backed by Honda’s 3-year warranty program, the engine is supported by Honda dealers throughout Australia for in- and out-of-warranty service.
Key benefits of Aussie Fire Chief fire pumps:

  • Unique pressure-to-flow characteristics suitable for Australian conditions
  • 7’’ impeller delivers a whopping 100psi pressure equivalent of 75 metres of vertical head lift without overloading the engine
  • Mounted on a heavy duty steel skid with anti-vibration mounts
  • Reduced vibration extends pump longevity and provides a stable base for the unit
  • Huge big belly body enables more water to be held and allows pump to prime first time
  • Top quality mechanical seal with ceramic hardened face and Buna Nitrile elastomers eliminates leaks or lack of prime
  • 2” flanged suction port gets more water into the pump, dramatically aiding water flow and ensuring fast priming
  • Higher pressure twin impeller versions also available with Honda 9hp and 13hp petrol engines, or Yanmar 10hp diesel drives
  • Unique 5-year warranty
