Aussie Big Block Blaster packs a punch

Aussie Pumps’ new Raptor 7300 psi pressure cleaner gets its grunt from a “Big Block” Vanguard industrial petrol engine.

The new machine, developed by Australia’s leading manufacturer of industrial hydroblasting equipment uses a 31 HP Vanguard twin cylinder Big Block, with a whopping 895cc (54 cubic inch) engine capacity.

The Aussie Raptor 7300psi machine takes normal high pressure cleaning equipment into a new dimension. 

Jobs are completed faster, with less water usage, and better overall results. 

The Big Block engine provides a host of advantages over smaller drives.  These include lower oil and fuel consumption, lower noise levels, and the ability to deliver more power and torque at lower rpm than conventional engines.

“We like to use the Vanguard Big Block on our top of the range hydroblasters because it has more torque, and more lugging power than others,” said Aussie Pumps’ Design Manager Phil Wendell. 

“The Big Block design provides 35 per cent more cubic capacity than other equivalent horsepower engines, so it doesn’t even break into a sweat,” he said.

Using the Big Block engine means the heavy duty Aussie Raptor achieves its full 7300psi pressure at lower speed, adding substantially to engine longevity. The lower speed means less fuel is consumed and the engine requires less frequent maintenance, delivering real cost savings to the user.

The Aussie Raptor comes in a heavy duty galvanised frame with four large pneumatic tyres that make it manoeuvrable on site. The kit includes a gun and lance rated to 7300 psi and 10m of high pressure hose.

Diesel and electric drive versions including flame proofed units for mines and oil rigs are available.
