Engine Driven Davey Firefighter® Pumps

Are you bushfire ready?

Davey Firefighter® – more than the name suggests.

The Davey Firefighter is best known for its reliability in fire protection and prevention, but did you know it is one of the highest selling pumps for water transfer too? 
Not only can Davey single and twin stage Firefighters be used for fire prevention and protection, their ability to move large volumes of water is second to none. They are used for water transfer just as much as they are used in a bushfire situation. They are built tough, built in Australia, and can handle tough Aussie conditions.

Davey Firefighter – Get ready with the BEST
A fire plan is the first step to ensuring you are on the way to being bushfire ready. The second step is to ensure you, your equipment and your home are protected. You need an engine powered pump for both asset protection as well as post fire management of burning fences, surrounding vegetation and other structures including buildings.

Single Stage, Twin Stage, Petrol or Diesel - the choice is yours
With single and twin stage options, and your choice of higher flow or higher pressure, the class leading performance Davey Firefighter is number 1 in Australia, and sold worldwide. Davey Firefighter® pumps are available with a choice of Honda engines. Larger Honda petrol engine models and Yanmar diesel powered models are also available.

Note: Only 5255H & 5265H are fitted with roll frames

  • 1. Know the machine: Ensure all members of the household know how to locate and operate attachments like inlet and outlet hoses to the fire pump.
  • 2. Fuel - Petrol: Petrol has a limited life and can become ‘stale’. Change the fuel every two months by running the pump or draining it of fuel. Better still, use a fuel stabiliser which will dramatically extend the life of the fuel (must be added when new fuel is purchased).
  • 3. Fuel - Diesel: Has a longer shelf life but generally needs to be stored at low ambient temperatures. Expect diesel fuel to last 12 months or longer at an ambient temperature of 20°C, or six months at an ambient temperature of 30°C.
  • 4. Engine oils: Engine manufacturers offer their own specially branded engine oils to best suit their engines. Synthetic multi-grade engine oil is NOT a suitable alternative. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s engine lubrication recommendations.
  • 5. Run engine regularly to ensure oil is well distributed around the moving parts. This provides best lubrication and a longer working life.
  • 6. Ensure your pump set has adequate clean air access: Check and replace the air cleaner or filter per engine manufacturer recommendations.
  • 7. Keep the engine cool: Ideally protect the pump from radiant heat in a flame proof enclosure, otherwise add a mist spray around the pump or its enclosure to aid cooling and humidify the air.
  • 8. General maintenance regime: Regular checks will ensure fuel lines are in good condition and the recoil starter works. A regular service schedule is invaluable.
  • 9. Check the plumbing: Investigate and maintain the water system.
  • 10. Check for leaves, debris and sticks that can impede the inlet system. For permanent installations, a foot valve and strainer at the end of the suction line can overcome obstructions.
  • 11. Checked for air leaks and that all gaskets and seals are in good order.
  • 12. An underground ring main installed around your property with durable hydrant or standpipe outlets can give you much greater coverage.
  • 13. Practice: A well-rehearsed and documented fire plan is critical to personal survival.

So, as the summer fire season approaches the traditional motto of ‘be prepared’ applies. Establish your fire plan early. Adequately brief and train all family members in its resources and features.

Finally, ensure that all your fire protection equipment from a Davey Firefighter pump, to your hoses and nozzles are well maintained and able to operate without delay.
