Furphy water carts, available from Australian Pump Industries , feature the Aussie Fire Chief, a world-leading fire pump.    

Furphy Engineering, a leading mobile tank manufacturer, chose the Fire Chief fire pumps because they met the company’s stringent engineering standards that focus on high material quality and workmanship.

This is no surprise, considering the Aussie Fire Chief is considered one of the leading lightweight portable high pressure fire pumps in the world.

Brad Farrugia, Product Manager at Aussie Pumps explains that the Fire Chief is perfect for the Furphy water carts by virtue of their robust design and ability to operate in even the toughest of conditions.

The Aussie Fire Chief portable fire pumps boast a range of features, including:

  • Handles flows of up to 550 lmp and pressures of over 100 psi -
  • Huge flanged 2” suction port gets more water into the pump
  • A large body so it is able to hold large quantities of water and ensure for fast priming
  • Sucks water through a vertical lift of 7.6 metres
  • Comes equipped with a 5.5 HP petrol engine from Honda
  • Optional Yanmar or Kubota diesel engines
  • Unique 5 year warranty

Perhaps most notably, the Fire Chief fire pumps feature a huge 7 ½ diameter impeller that has been specifically built to match the purpose built volute. This ensures maximum efficiency.  

The Furphy water carts come equipped with a 950-litre galvanised tank. The tank has also been hot dipped in order to prevent corrosion.   A galvanised trailer with 16” four wheel drive wheels and heavy duty rubber torsion suspension supports the water carts.

The trailer also features a galvanised steel platform, which allows for operation of the machine even when the vehicle is in motion.

Furphy water tanks are suitable for use across a range of different applications. While they are extremely effective in the terminating dangerous fires, they are also an extremely useful tool for farmers. They can be used to wash large machinery effectively and efficiently, assist farmers in topping up stock water troughs, make the process of watering trees and shrubs easier, and many more.
