Lightweight winner from Aussie Pumps


Australian Pump Industries has released a new four stroke, ultra lightweight self-priming pump.

Weighing only 5.3kg, the pump features a 40m head, with a maximum flow of 120L a minute.

The new Aussie Quick Prime pump (Model QP1 GX25) is powered by a Honda lightweight four stroke, advanced design model GX25 engine. 

The GX25 engine develops 1 HP and represents a high tech approach to engine design. Honda offers a full three-year warranty on the GX25 engine from their national dealer network.

"Matching the Honda engine to our high performance pump head provides a unique combination of performance and flow," says Aussie Pumps’ Product Manager Brad Farrugia. 

"The pump is super versatile and able to perform emergency spot fire mop up, water transfer or even personal protection for fire fighters," he says.

The Aussie QP1 GX25 is fitted with Nitrile seals, making it suitable for diesel fuel transfer applications.

Like all Aussie Quick Prime pumps, the new model has excellent self-priming characteristics, enabling it to self-prime from depths of 8m.

"That means users can draw water from wells or bores from as deep as 8m, or suck water from creeks or streams where high suction lift is required," Farrugia says.

The Aussie Quick Prime QP1 GX25 comes mounted on heavy duty steel skids with anti vibration mounts and with a convenient carry handle.  A hose coupling and strainer kit is also included as standard equipment.
