Zimmerer Kubota & Equipment has been serving its customers since 1979. With five locations in Texas in Cleburne, Decatur, Denton, Fort Worth and Gainesville, they offer sales, parts, service and rental at each of their stores. Zimmerer Kubota is known for offering their customers top quality products, including Vac-Tron Equipment vacuum excavators.

Zimmerer Kubota wanted to purchase a piece of equipment to add to their fleet that their customers could use to do the job, safer and more efficiently, than having to rent two to three other pieces of equipment for the job. “Some of the criteria that we used when we were looking to purchase a Vac-Tron, or a machine-like Vac-Tron, was the dealer and the product,” says Sam Zimmerer, co-owner and vice president at Zimmerer Kubota. “We had already had dealings with the Vermeer company here in Dallas/Ft. Worth, so we knew what kind of parts and service they offer, what kind of attention to detail they had, and how good they would take care of us after the sale which was extremely important to us. Secondly, once we met the Vac-Tron team, we were even more impressed with the plant, the company and the product, and we have still been impressed now that we have been running it over a year.” 

Safer and more efficient

“We have been actively including Vac-Tron into our rental fleet for a little over a year; we started with one unit and it seemed like that unit was never here, always out. People would call and we were out, so we added a second, and then that unit was always out, and we added a third and will probably add a fourth here soon because it rents so well. There is no downtime; it does its job, and it does it right the first time evidently because they keep coming back and renting it again,” Zimmerer says.

Rental manager Jason Gentry adds, “Using a hydrovac after we have had it in the rental fleet for a little bit definitely opened our customer’s eyes. Once they started using it and we started demoing it and letting them see what we could do, it was a lot more efficient than having to rent two or three other pieces of equipment, they can just use the one.” 

Vacuum excavator applications inlude:

  • Air and hydro vacuum excavation
  • Utility locating/potholing
  • Clean-outs
  • Sewer jetting
  • Wet/dry material removal
  • And many more

“ROI on these units are awesome. They perform well, our customers are very happy with the product, and they keep the maintenance cost down,” Gentry says.

“We love our Vac-Tron, we love our Vermeer sales team that backs the product, and we won’t go anywhere else,” Zimmerer says.
