Most people don’t know that Hatz Diesel supplies 80 per cent of the diesel engines in Australia’s fire fighter pumps – and Hatz is proud of that.
Sami Almogawish, Managing Director of Hatz Diesel Australia, says Hatz engines don’t attract much notice because they never fail.
“Hatz has an impeccable record. In fact, the fire industry has never reported a Hatz engine fail in the many years that we have been supplying Australia’s fleet,” Sami says.
Sami and his team are on high-alert during the Australian bush fire season and Hatz keeps the Sydney parts and service centre on standby to ensure an immediate response should a call come in from the fire service for parts.
“Hatz’s response time is impressive and when it comes to supporting the fire industry we are ready to deliver anything the fire service needs to keep their Hatz engine operating,” he says.
“We haven’t had that call yet, but we’re ready for it. Water supply is obviously vital during a fire emergency so the pumps simply have to work,” he says.
Hatz Diesel provide support for fire services Australia-wide. They even offer Hatz service technicians to be on standby at an emergency. This ensures help is on-hand, if required.
Hatz Diesel’s innovative H50 water-cooled engine series offers the lightest and most compact engines on the market and now includes an all new three cylinder version, which Sami says is ideally suited to the fire industry.
