OKAHUMPKA, Fla., Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vac-Tron Equipment has introduced and is now rolling out a new series of PTO (Power Take Off) truck driven systems for vacuum excavation.  These new trucks are available on Ford or Freightliner chassis.  There is no other truck like it in the industry.  The feedback from projects managers so far shows that it is an incredible feat of engineering.

A major benefit of PTO Driven is that all components are controlled from the truck eliminating the extra weight, space, and cost of the pony motor.  The available hitch package is another benefit allowing you to tow other equipment to the job site to help with efficiency.

The full line of the HTV (Hydro Truck Vac) series has debris tanks ranging from 300 gallons to 1500 gallons in size. The Power Take Off of the truck drives positive displacement vacuum blowers that produce 1,000 to 2,600 CFM. These units are standard with a high pressure water system, full hydraulic rear claw door, reverse pressure, and the patented "Big Red" filter housing that cleans the air down to 0.5 microns (best in the industry) before it passes back through the vacuum pump.  Air compressors and Hydraulic booms are also available on most of the HTV series units.  Patent Pending.

The 300, 500 and 800 gallon HTV units give you the performance needed to take on the tough jobs in a compact package. The 300-gallon unit is available on a Ford F-550 chassis, the 500 gallon unit is available on a Ford F-650 chassis and the 800-gallon unit is on a Ford F-750 chassis. If it is capacity you are looking for, then the HTV 1573 full hydraulic PTO unit is the most versatile truck for your projects. This unit has 1500-gallon debris capacity, 700-gallons of freshwater, 2,600 cfm with reverse pressure and a fully hydraulic 6" boom.

Patented CVS Filtration System:  The HTV PTO filtration housing incorporates a 28" (71.1 cm) diameter cyclone, four-way valve for reverse pressure, and the largest silencer in the industry for quiet performance.

These trucks also feature a claw door with over center locking mechanism for a simple no fuss positive lock and unlock rear door.

This is an exceptional truck for many projects as well as directional drill site cleanup, confident utility locates, job site safety, and productive job site management.
