Aussie Pumps introduce their new 3” Mr T twin impeller pump powered by a Honda 13HP engine (recoil and electric start options). The new pump delivers an exceptional performance/flow combination, to a maximum of 500 lpm, heads as high as 95 metres. At the duty point, it delivers a massive 200 lpm at 80 metres head. The pump comes standard with a 3” outlet, although a three-way tree outlet can be fitted if required. The advantage of using this 3” pump with 3” hose to move water long distances is a dramatic decrease in friction loss over a 2” hose. The result is a lot more water at the end of the delivery line, meaning faster transfer times. These high-performance fire pumps feature a pair of superbly designed 7” single piece impellers, and come fitted in a red, single piece carry frame for easy lifting. Like all Aussie QP pumps, they come with a five-year warranty.
