The Foremost 1600 Hydrovac has a heated 42-inch van body and is recommended for both urban and industrial applications. It allows for water capacities of 1,600 gallons and a 13-yard debris body. The Robuschi RBDV125 blower provides vacuum power. The Cat 3560 wash pump and 740,000 Btu boiler are also used on this model. The boom is rear-mounted, 8 inches in diameter, fully rotational and controlled by an Omnex wireless controller, which also controls the vehicle rpm, wash and vacuum functions. All off-loading functions can be performed via the remote, and are performed via a sloped debris floor design and washout system. The dump door is 48 by 58 inches, providing a large area to allow for tank cleaning. Optional 4-inch Hydratech off-loading pump systems are available, which allow for pumping off in a contained manner when discharging liquid loads. Complete winterization is standard.
