For public works professionals and others involved in cleaning and maintaining sewers and catch basins, Vactor is the first name in sewer cleaners, but we are much more than that. For more than 100 years, Vactor Manufacturing has provided customers around the world with a wide range of material handling equipment. Originally founded in Chicago in 1911 as the Myers-Sherman Company, a manufacturer of pneumatic farm equipment, Vactor Manufacturing has evolved to become the industry leader in sewer cleaners and catch basin cleaners, jetters, industrial vacuum loaders and vacuum excavation equipment featuring innovative technology and custom-configurable designs.
With one of the largest and most developed distributor networks in the sewer cleaning industry, Vactor Manufacturing, a subsidiary of Federal Signal Corporation – and part of its Environmental Solutions Group – has more than 50 North American distributors in 100 locations to serve the municipal market, and eight factory-direct locations for industrial customers. Vactor is located on 20 acres with 240,000 square feet of manufacturing space under one roof in Streator, Illinois and is ISO 9001-2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certified.
For over 45 years, Vactor has been the leader in building sewer cleaners with technological innovation and custom configurable design. With a rich history that spans most of the century, Vactor Manufacturing continues to be respected as an innovative designer and manufacturer of products using pneumatics. Nearly 10,000 units have been sold worldwide, far more than any other sewer cleaner manufacturers.
Vactor Manufacturing is pleased to introduce a redesigned Vactor 2100 sewer cleaner for public utilities and professional contractors cleaning wastewater and sanitary systems. The new Vactor 2100 Plus features increased vacuum performance and improvements to operator comfort and control, air routing and filtration efficiency and fuel efficiency. Smart Truck concept features have also been integrated on the new sewer cleaner, including internal monitoring systems that enable the operator to monitor and troubleshoot flow and pressure, blower temperature and oil level, drive system idle and open vacuum relief.
The Vactor vacuum system, consisting of a large dynamically and statically balanced aluminum fan, produces a smooth, safe and powerful airflow. This unique system is capable of vacuuming debris from great depths and significantly increases debris volume and velocity.
Looking for a tough, efficient and dependable positive displacement sewer cleaning machine? The Vactor 2100 Series combines power and reliability with customer configurable design that handles any cleaning application with speed and thoroughness.
When you need quick response in the event of a sewer line blockage, broken storm water line, or routine maintenance – but feel a full size combination machine isn’t in your budget – call on the Vactor 2103. Powerful enough to tackle the big jobs, the 2103 is midsized for low operating costs and greater maneuverability. It is designed and manufactured to the same exacting standards as full-size Vactors.
The Vactor Ramjet jetter scours sewer lines clean. Instituting a regular line maintenance program is easy with the truck-mounted Vactor Ramjet. Equipped with a Vactor Jet Rodder® water pump or triplex water pump, the Ramjet effectively breaks up blockages in sanitary lines and flushes out debris.
The VAXJET closed-loop surface cleaning system is a patented system that removes oil, dirt, grease, rubber and other contaminants from flat surfaces. Industrial and commercial cleaning contractors can now service their customers while staying in compliance with tougher anti-discharge regulations.
For power in a compact package look to the mid-sized Vactor HXX Prodigy vacuum excavation truck. The Vactor HXX Prodigy vacuum excavator is the perfect non-destructive machine for utility and municipal applications. Versatile enough to excavate using either air or water as a digging medium, the HXX Prodigy features a 16-inch Hg, 3200 CFM PD blower with a custom-designed and optimized filtration system that can handle both digging mediums—air (185 cfm/150 psi) and water (10 gpm/ 2500 psi)—without a bag house.
The Vactor HXX HydroExcavator is a powerful machine that can tackle major excavations while still providing safe, non-destructive digging you association with vacuum excavation. You can use your HXX HydroExcavator for large excavation projects or high-precision slot trenching.
