Features of VC72AS
1. Light weight and compact
Engine and pump castings are made of anti-corrosive aluminum-alloy to reduce weight and prolong
working life. Compact unit in its class fits existing locker space, also can be carried by 2 firemen.
2. High pump performance
Both engine and pump are designed and developed specifically for fire pumps by Tohatsu, ensuring
higher pump performance for its class.
3. Reliable engine with oil injection/auto mixing oil delivery system
The engine of VC72AS is originally designed by Tohatsu for VC52/72AS models. Equipped with oil
pump, gasoline and engine oil are mixed automatically at a precise ratio to engine speed without mixing
fuel and oil by operator.
Quick priming is provided by operating Rotary Vane Vacuum Pump. Prime 3 meters in 6 seconds.
5. Centralized control
All gauges, throttle dial, control switches, and other warning lamps are grouped on the control panel for
6. Cooling water recirculation system
Engine cooling water is returned to the pump eliminating discharge outside of the pump, and
contamination of surrounding area.
7. Unique auto choke carburetor
This device helps engine start easier in all seasonal temperature conditions.
8. Engine overheat protection sensor
Overheat protection is provided on this model to safeguard the engine from cooling water loss,
and to protect engine when water is not discharging. This device stops the engine automatically
when engine temperature reaches 80℃. Reset switch is provided to release the sensor after
it stops the engine.
9. Stainless steel fuel tank
Integrated fuel tank with large capacity of 18liters ensures the fuel supply will last for 1.5 hours at least
at maximum throttle opening and load.
10. 180degree rotating discharge port
11. Electric starter with back up recoil starter
An electric starter and back-up recoil starter are installed to guarantee starting engine under any
