Silvan’s 600 Litre Fire Fighting Unit is Right for Fire or Emergency Response

With the summer bushfire season ahead, Silvan Australia has released a new fully equipped 600 Litre capacity Fire Fighting Unit with all fittings and services mounted on a galvanized slip on frame.
The unit is designed to be carried on the farm utility or trailer to provide a first response to a fire outbreak, for an emergency wash down, or equally as a convenient means of transferring water when needed.
Based on a 600 litre capacity Polytuff barrel shape the tank with a sump is strong, highly durable and ultra-violet stabilised for a long life under prolonged outdoor exposure.
The tank design includes a large 255mm screw filler cap with a drain bung with the sump for emptying or clearing the contents.
The unit is supplied with a proven Honda engine and Davey pump set combination designed to give about two hours of running time on a full tank of 3.6 litres of unleaded fuel.
The Honda engine is a four stroke 5.5 horsepower with manual recoil start and with low oil protection.
The Davey pump has a maximum output of 425 litres per minute at a maximum pressure of 80 PSI.
The Silvan 600 Litre Firefighting Unit is supplied with a heavy-duty poly coated steel hose reel with guiding rollers and a hose stop and is fitted with a 30 metre length of 19 mm inside diameter hose and an adjustable spray nozzle.
Compact and with an unladen weight of 140kg the complete unit is housed on a galvanized steel skid frame with pickup handles fitted that double as tiedown points to secure the unit to a vehicle tray or similar.
Additional features include a dam fill hose kit with six metres of hose fitted with a filter and a three-way valve that enables a change of the pump suction position from the tank to a dam source of water, with a second one-way valve enabling delivery of water from the pump into the tank.
The new Silvan 600 Litre Fire Fighter has practical and easy to use features and as a self-contained unit is always popular with owners of larger properties, the pastoral sector and emergency services and land managers who recognise that a convenient readily available water and hose distribution source can provide the best response at the earliest stages of an emergency or fire event.
Recommended retail price of the new unit is $3,989 including GST with national distribution available from Silvan agents and resellers.
