High pressure pumps available in two popular sizes. These fire pumps are designed for heavy duty and are suitable for fire fighting duties and high pressure wash downs of equipment or farmyards. The pumps have a discharge with three outlets for multiple fire hoses. With rapid self priming capabilities and fitted with either a reliable diesel or petrol engines ensure that the unit will start and operate correctly when you want it. Mounted on a sturdy, heavy duty trolley frame and mounted on two pneumatic wheels for ease of maneuverings the pump close to the source of water. Suitable hose kits are available from Finsbury. These pumps are easily maintained and built with quality parts for a long service life.

Engine options available are in diesel and petrol from the following manufacturers.
Honda petrol: 5.5 to 6.5hp OHV horizontal shaft petrol engine with oil alert
Yanmar diesel: 4.8 to 6.8hp air-cooled direct fuel injected diesel engine, with low vibration levels.
For maximum efficiency, the pump should be positioned as close as possible to the source of water. This set up is ideal for use with a swimming pool/ water tank or dam. Note that if used for taking water from a dam then care should be taken to keep the suction strainer off the bottom to prevent the ingress of dirt into the system. Keep the fire trolley in a horizontal position. These self priming pumps require water in the pump case only for the initial pumping operation. No water is necessary for subsequent pumping when the casing contains water.
Caution: These pumps should never run dry!
