Fire Pump VF63AS-R


The method of the relay pumping operation(Tohatsu VF63AS-R)

Example of use in automatic relay operation (No operator is required at the relay pump). The relay pumping line with VF63AS-R can be extended endlessly. When the water hits the VF63AS-R, engine and pump function are automatically started which means that no one need to be on and operate the pump pressure. When the water from master pump stops, the VF63AS-R is also stopped automatically. It is fully-automatically controlled and providing new solution for forest/wild land fire and long distance water transfer action.

4-stroke automatic relay pump.

Unique, like no other. The world’s first automatic relay pump.
