Queensland’s devastating floods have triggered an emergency response from Australian Pump Industries! Australia’s biggest pressure cleaner manufacturer has thrown the factory into high gear, pulling people back from vacation from around the country.
“The response from the Aussie Pump team has been magnificent,” said Aussie Operations Manager John Hales. “People willing gave up their vacation, doubling production to meet the extreme emergency requirements.”
Australian Pump is the country’s leading manufacturer of professional high pressure water blasters. Their products are used by major hire companies across the country, construction companies, the big miners and both Government and local government bodies.
“We went into a crash program to build Aussie Ultra and Predator, 4,000 and 5,000 psi machines, knowing that there would be a requirement for hydro-blasters with real grunt,” said Hales. “Big Aussie designed and built machines offer a great combination of flow and pressure that give real whack!” he said.
The company claims that their hydro-blaster range provides the flow and pressure to move mud, silt and debris from machinery, buildings and key public utility assets.
The blasters use “Big Berty” Bertolini high pressure piston pumps that develop 4,000 and 5,000 psi pump pressures. When used in combination with an Aussie Turbo, performance is boasted to up to 8,500 psi effective working pressure.
Australian Pump is so confident about the quality of the Bertolini pumps and engines used that they offer a unique 3 + 3 year warranty on both the pump and engine.
The professional machines all come with heavy duty galvanised frames for protection and manoeuvrability. The trolley is fitted with big 13”steel wheels with pneumatic tyres.
The big Aussie blasters are supplied with a “hi-low” stainless steel double lance, heavy duty 5,000 psi rated professional gun and 10 metres of double wire braid Aussie high pressure hose with quick screw coupling to pump. The “hi-low”double lance enables the operator to move from low pressure detergent application to high pressure by the twist of the wrist.
“There is no point in putting small, hardware style machines into a flood cleanup project,” cautioned Hales. “Our machines were built tough for graffiti removal, brick or drain cleaning. They are designed to cut cleaning times, save water, and get the job done fast. The pressure is on and we are pushing through more drain cleaning jetters to unclog Brisbane’s sewer lines and storm water drains,” he said.
The Aussie blasters also come with a wide range of accessory options, for an easy flood/mud clean up. These include turbo attachments to get the mud off faster, telescopic Extenda Wands that give reach of up to 6 metres, and hose reels with extended length hoses to enable clean up, even in tight and hard to access locations.
