With rising fuel costs and tight budgets, everyone is looking at ways to become more efficient and productive while getting the most from their resources. Vactor has engineered options that allow more efficient system operations that increase productivity and reduce fuel consumption. Fuel savings for a single truck have been calculated at well over 3,500 gallons per year, or more depending how many hours you put on your truck. Additionally, less fuel burned means less NOx emissions for organizations struggling to meet 2011 fleet NOx reduction requirements. This is good news as less fuel burned means less money spent on fuel and less NOx emitted into the atmosphere.
Vactor’s unique Vac-On-The-Go enhancement allows our dual engine machine to perform many daily activities while running only the smaller, more fuel efficient, auxiliary engine. Now potholing, catch basin cleaning, trenching and hydro-excavating can be accomplished with less fuel burned, less NOx emission, less noise and less wear and tear on your equipment. Most operators surveyed claim that Vac-On-The-Go improves their productivity. This enhancement is accomplished with an additional PTO that allows the auxiliary engine to produce up to 20 GPM of hydro-excavation or catch basin cleaning power, even if you choose to shut down the chassis engine.
Vactor’s proprietary 5×5 boom option saves operators precious time and the strain of continually adding or removing additional catch basin tubes. It works as a telescopic hose independently controlled from the main boom; this allows an additional 5′ of cleaning depth without maneuvering the main boom. Operators using the 5×5 boom option report up to 30% more catch basins being cleaned per day all while making the job easier on the operator.
With new NPDES regulations, everyone is required to do more. Vactor options are designed to help your staff be safer and more productive. That means lower operating costs and greener operations for you!
The right equipment, the right enhancements – all backed by the right company. Everybody Wins!
