Aussie Water Mover
A new cost efficient 6 inch self priming centrifugal pump, capable of moving huge quantities of water, has been released by Australian Pump Industries. Called the Aussie Quik Prime model QP602, the big gusher is ideal for high volume transfer or flood irrigation applications.
The ability to move large amounts of water is vital for flood irrigation and the QP602 is capable of transferring up to 174,000 litres per hour. With a maximum vertical discharge of 32 metres, the big 6” pump has the capability to move water from a lower dam or river to the flood site.
Runoff captured in ponds can be easily pumped back into the system with the QP602 to minimize water loss.
The six inch pump offers users a huge open style, high grade cast iron impeller, capable of passing small solids in suspension. It has the ability to draft water from depths of up to 7.6 metres, making it ideal for pumping from rivers, dams or tanks.
“Its unique high flow design makes it very efficient and gives it the ability to move water fast and at minimal cost” said Aussie Pumps’ Scott Coleman. “In its standard configuration it needs only a 13HP Honda petrol engine to achieve its full capacity!” he said.
The big Aussie gusher is also available with a Yanmar air cooled diesel engine with electric start for easy and efficient operation. The QP602 has a heavy duty wrap around frame for protection, eye bolt and four mounted handles for easy lifting.
“This Aussie 6 inch pump is a break through in terms of quality, value and performance.” said Coleman. “The great fuel efficiencies, high volume transfer and heavy duty construction really make the QP602 an incredible pump” he said.
The QP602 comes with an unbeatable 5 year warranty pump end warranty and 3 year Honda or 2 year Yanmar engine guarantees. With marine grade aluminium pump housing and a carbon ceramic mechanical seal this pump is designed to last.
