A new version of Australian Pump Industries’ heavy-duty 5000psi hydroblaster is now available powered by Briggs and Stratton’s Vanguard “Big Block” 27 HP industrial engine.

The Vanguard twin cylinder electric start Big Block engine has a whopping 889cc engine capacity, giving it many of advantages over conventional smaller capacity engines.

The Aussie Predator 5000psi industrial hydroblaster is a purpose built machine designed for heavy duty cleaning tasks in construction, mining and industrial sectors. It uses a “Big Berty” Bertolini HD Series triplex pump, claimed to be the heaviest duty pump of its kind in this pressure bracket. 

The pump weighs 20.4kg and is a heavy-duty triplex design. It features brass head with bolt down style valve caps, and is built for sustained performance in the toughest industrial cleaning tasks.

“We tested several different engines for this class of machine, but found the Vanguard Big Block to have more torque, and more lugging power than others,” said Aussie spokesperson Hamish Lorenz.

“The Big Block design provides 35 per cent more cubic capacity than other equivalent horsepower engines, so it was an easy decision to make,” he said.

The Vanguard Big Block engine means the heavy duty Aussie Predator achieves full power at lower rpm, adding substantially to engine longevity. 

The engine also comes with a Donaclone Cyclopac air cleaner, a real advantage in Australia’s hot, dusty operating conditions.
