Vacuum Truck Serves Dual Roles

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Comment | More

A new multi-purpose vacuum truck from Guzzler Manufacturing combines an industrial vacuum truck and vacuum excavator.

The Guzzcavator combines the company’s Guzzler CL vacuum loader and Vactor HXX Hydroexcavator.

The machine’s air filtration system can handle wet and dry cleaning applications, such as cleaning and recovering solids and dry bulk powders, liquids, slurries and thick sludge.

Guzzcavator

The Guzzcavator works as both a vacuum truck and vacuum excavator, according to Guzzler Manufacturing. 

The vacuum truck can also perform vacuum excavation work, including potholing, slot trenching, water valve box repair, locating existing fiber optic lines, cables and other utilities, and oil and gas field support.

According to the company, vacuum excavation minimizes ground disturbance and reduces the risk of damage to underground utility lines.

Hydroexcavation Options 

For hydroexcavation, the Guzzcavator’s jets blast at pressures up to 2,500 psi, depending on the pump selection, variable water pressure adjustment, and nozzle tip configuration, the company says. The truck has a 1,300-gallon stainless steel water tank that allows seven hours of continuous operation.

The water system is powered by a hydraulically operated triplex piston water pump, which can be mounted in an optional heated cabinet to protect it against cold weather, the company says. The optional water heater is available in 400,000 BTU/hr or 800,000 BTU/hr, and is also available for hydroexcavation applications in cold weather or sticky clay soil.

A five-foot telescoping boom rotates 270 degrees and can provide more than 21 feet of reach from the center of the truck, according to the company. An optional extendable boom is also available.

Expanding Services

“The versatility of this machine allows industrial cleaning contractors to offer their customers additional services, creating new income avenues that can result in an improved bottom line,” said Ben Schmitt, product manager.

Guzzler Manufacturing plans to display the Guzzcavator at the 2014 Pumper & Cleaner Environmental Expo, set for Feb. 24 to 27 in Indianapolis, IN.

Guzzler Manufacturing, based in Streator, IL, is a subsidiary of Federal Signal Corporation’s Environmental Solutions Group. The company manufactures industrial vacuum loaders for use in cleaning up industrial waste and recovering and recycling raw materials.
