After a devastating 2019-2020 fire season, fueled by record breaking temperatures and drought, it’s essential that all Australians know how to prepare for bush fire season.
An estimated 46 million acres were burnt and over 5,900 buildings were destroyed during the previous Black Summer bushfire season.
For those seeking an effective, multi-purpose pump, we offer the Davey Firefighter® Twin Stage Self Priming Pump. Suitable for firefighting as well as a range of applications, Davey pumps have provided a superior water solution for over 85 years.
The Davey Firefighter® Single and Twin Stage Self Priming Pumps are economical and durable, with a range of models to suit your exact needs. These Davey pumps are driven by a range of engines, including a Honda GX160 or a Honda GX200 engine. Also available are some models with electric start, and accessories including roll cages and hose kits.
This Davey water solution is designed for firefighting, as well as water transfer. It is also suitable for other activities including irrigation, boom spraying and sheep jetting.
Pump features include a patented clamped impeller design which enables longer impeller life, better performance and simpler disassembly. The pump also offers extra strong pressure so you can benefit from longer, higher pumping.
Davey Firefighter® Single and Twin Stage Self Priming Pump’s diffusers, impellers and pump casing are all made from marine grade aluminium, with the pump featuring a polyester coated pump casing for added corrosion resistance.
Your engine will also stay protected due to the low-oil protection feature on all Firefighter® models.
In addition to these features, you can rest assured that this Davey pump conforms to all environmental requirements of the proposed Australian Emissions Standards.
To minimise your risks during 20-21, make sure you stay up to date with all fire safety advice and fire warnings that may affect your community. The Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, Rural Fire Service and SES offer a range of invaluable resources for Queenslanders, so we can better prepare and protect ourselves during the Australian bushfire season.
