An Intuitive Combo Cleaner

2100i from Vactor

Technological advancements continue to help contractors do more with less. As the systems and services offered on combination machines become more automated, they allow operators to get more work done with less manpower. Vactor has embraced that idea with the 2100i combination sewer cleaner, a unit offering advanced technology and simplicity for a highly connected operator experience that its makers are calling “game-changing.”

As successor to the Vactor 2100 Plus, the 2100i increases simplicity with the IntuiTouch one-touch control system by bringing advanced, yet intuitively simple controls designed to maximize operator efficiency. New features inside the cab include a 7-inch screen with backlit tactile buttons and one-touch control for quick startup and engagement. It includes controls and a viewing screen for camera, lighting, recirculation and power takeoff/transfer case activation. One-touch engagement activates the PTO and transfer case, allowing operators to gain control of all operational systems. The operator can easily view the current operating mode, recirculation status, flows and pressures.

Outside the cab, operators will find a single control panel including a 7-inch dashboard screen with touch-screen and glove-friendly buttons featuring at-a-glance data for maximum efficiency. In addition, the new articulating controls adjust to the desired location for the operator’s optimal placement. Touch buttons with backlit feedback enable the operator to know if a selected function is active, and the hose reel joystick significantly improves response time and pays in and out in the direction of the hose reel. The boom joystick has a telescoping feature built in, giving the operator full mobility with multiple direction boom movement for quicker setup. Operators have full control of the water system via a single Multi-Flow control dial, enabling them to precisely match the flow and pressure to the job requirements.

“When we launched the original Vactor 2100 Plus nearly a decade ago, we feel that we set the bar with technological innovation and customized design,” says Brandon Shelton, product manager at Vactor. “Now we are revolutionizing the industry again with a state-of-the-art product that combines intuitive simplicity and operational ease with the most advanced technology available.”

Furthermore, the RDB 1015 Rapid Deployment Boom telescopes 10 feet out and extends the debris hose down 15 feet, minimizing the need for additional tubes, speeding and easing operation in a wide range of dynamic applications.

“To say we are excited would be an understatement,” Shelton says.
