As vacuum excavation continues to take the sewer maintenance and construction industry by storm, Vactor has announced the addition of  TRUVAC, its brand of vacuum excavator trucks designed specifically to satisfy the safe-digging requirements of businesses or organizations that locate and verify underground utility lines and pipes. The TRUVAC line will focus on vacuum excavation, while the Vactor brand will continue to focus on equipment solutions for cleaning and maintaining sewers and catch basins.

The TRUVAC product line includes the versatile ParaDIGm subcompact vacuum excavator, the Prodigy vacuum excavator that offers power and performance in a smaller footprint and the HXX series of full-sized vacuum excavators designed to tackle large digging projects.

“The TRUVAC brand is new, but the products, technology and quality are well-established by the Vactor brand,” says Sam Miceli, vice president and general manager of Vactor. “Vactor Mfg. brings to the brand more than 100 years of operator-focused innovation excellence, more than 50 years of experience building equipment that combines high-pressure water and vacuum technology and more than 20 years of experience manufacturing vacuum excavators.”

The TRUVAC ParaDIGm vacuum excavator, in particular, is designed for utility, municipal and contractor customers involved in the installation, maintenance and repair of underground water, sewer, gas, electric and telecommunications lines. This compact, multiuse truck can dig holes with water or air; vacuum, contain and dispose of drill mud; power pneumatic, hydraulic or electrical tools; and provide transport and storage of replacement parts, equipment and tools. The truck’s Park-n-Dig design minimizes the time between arriving on the job site and excavation, including the ability to dig up to 6 feet in depth without additional pipe and hose. Its air compressor powers utility tools such as jackhammers and tampers that may be used on the job. The truck offers substantial storage space for these tools, including a long-handle toolbox. It can also tow up to 20,000 pounds. 

“TRUVAC has been established to address the critical need for safe digging in the United States and Canada,” says Nick Bruhn, product manager at TRUVAC. “With more than 19 million miles of buried utilities in the United States alone, the risks of utility strikes caused by poor excavator digging practices are too great to ignore, and incidents of gas line explosions, power outages and burst waterlines causing injuries, fatalities and property damage continue to occur at an alarming rate.” 800-627-3171;
