Standard hydraulic door opens fully horizontal to maximize the efficiency of spoils removal; door also features hydraulic locks.

Autoclutching feature disengages the water pump when water is not in use, allowing full system power for suction.

Rugged design

Designed specifically for mounting on truck frame rails, allowing system components to flex independently of truck, for maximum structural integrity.

Designed for minimal overall package height, resulting in a lower center of gravity and better handling during transport.

Saddle-style tanks provide optimal weight distribution to keep payload over rear axle.

Reusable, 0.5-micron vacuum filter and a blower relief valve air filter provide the industry's best filtration; optional cyclonic filter cleans the air before it reaches the filter, minimizing maintenance.


Mounts to single-axle truck of your choice, new or used, so you can control the level of initial investment and customize with toolboxes and support equipment; complies with all truck manufacturers’ requirements.

Choice of 500-gallon (1893-L) spoils tank with 200-gallon (757-L) water tank or 800-gallon (3028-L) spoils tank with 400-gallon (1512-L) water tank to meet the requirements of virtually any size cleanup job.

Ease of use

Easily accessible controls and service points; curbside controls can be configured for left- or right-hand traffic, for greater safety and convenience.

Remote-fill water tank allows for easy filling and prevents siphoning back into the water supply.

Integrated tool rack on door and underbody hose storage help simplify operation.

Ladders provide easy access to truck bed and can be stowed when not in use.

Optional hydraulic boom extends to 14 ft (4.3 m); saves labor, time and reduces operator fatigue.
