Model: Viton Chief
A fire pump on a rural property is one piece of equipment that really earns its keep. These multipurpose units do more than just firefighting duties. Aussie Pumps new Viton seal option makes with its flagship Fire Chief even more versatile.
Quality fire pumps, like the ‘Chief’, naturally suit high pressure water transfer applications including tank filling, water transfer between dams and even irrigation. When fitted with Viton seals the pumps can also safely handle farm chemicals including liquid fertilisers, herbicides and even diesel fuel.
The company’s new Viton Chief is a new version of the famous Aussie Fire Chief. It uses genuine Viton material for all seals, check valves and O-rings. That means compatibility with most agricultural chemicals, salt water, diesel fuel, light oils and of course fresh water.
All pump end components are made from marine grade aluminium. Even so, Aussie Pumps recommends the pumps are flushed with fresh water after use for both product longevity and common sense OH & S. Flushing after use also prevents “sticking’ of internal pump components.
The Aussie Viton Chief comes powered by a Honda 5.5hp petrol engine. The genuine Honda engine offers a 3 year warranty whilst the pump end itself is guaranteed by an absolutely free 5 year warranty.
The Aussie Viton Chief comes with the same features and uncompromising performance as the standard Fire Chief model. The pumps are capable of a maximum head of 75 metres and flows to 450 lpm. With a vertical lift of 7.6 metres the pump will prime fast when drawing water from wells or creeks.
The Aussie Viton Chief comes standard with a built-in handle for easy portability and heavy duty steel skids with anti-vibration mounts for stability.
“It’s easy to understand why the Aussie Fire Chief is found on so many properties around the country,” said Aussie Pump’s area manager Brad Farrugia. “It’s simply the best in quality, performance and value for money. This new version with Viton seals means farmers get the same features of their favourite pump but with ability to tackle more on-farm duties safely,” he said.
