Custom made builds to suit your application. Don’t buy off the shelf, sit down with our design team & build to your specifications

Do you require a bit of help with a project or design? A large part of Shaw Diesel’s success over the years has been our ability to adapt and make situations work for our customers. “Custom Shaw Solutions” is the fabrication sector of our company, that designs and builds one-off projects for our clients in a cost-effective manner. Whether it be replacing an electric motor with a diesel, repowering an existing engine set up, or building a full pump/generator that needs to be certain dimensions, we can do that!

We fabricate bases, do installations, and electrical control panels. If your preference is for one of the following brands – Lister Petter, Green Power, DEUTZ, or another international brand – chances are, it’ll be in stock. But if you need something special – you couldn’t have found a better team.


Sand Slurry Pumps

Slurry pumps are often used for the transport of abrasive solids in industries such as mining, dredging, and steel. They are often designed to be suitable for heavy-wearing and heavy-duty uses. You’ll want your diesel engine to be the same. If you are thinking of a repower from an electric drive or you are simply replacing an existing motor, we can fabricate to your requirements.

PTO Driven Pumps

PTO driven pumps are a cost effective way to pump effluent and water across your farm, but in some circumstances, you might also find that your tractor is sitting stationary for the day and you have another use for it. We can calculate the ratio of what is required to power your pump and design a diesel-powered solution.

Diesel powered Pumps for irrigation

Borehole Pumps

Diesel borehole pumps are customized for installation in an underground well in order to pump water for multiple uses. Many Shaw Diesels water pump sets are put to good use, providing water for Pacific peoples.

We fabricate simple hand-start and air-cooled pumps for the purpose. All that’s required is to put in the oil and ensure regular servicing and maintenance. It means a lot to us to know that we’re doing our small bit to improve people’s lives by helping advance water quality, through the Pacific Water Association.
