Customizable Truck-Mounted Vac With Compact Footprint and Proven Performance

The new ECO Series from Vermeer answers the utility market’s demand for a compact truck-mounted vacuum excavation system with a focus on improved performance and fuel efficiency and reduced maintenance. The 4-inch (10.2 cm) line of ECO truck vacuum excavators uses properly sized engines to power components and reduces excess fuel consumption. The Tier 4 – ­­compliant 49-horsepower (36.5 kW) Kubota “sips” fuel at 2.75 gallons (10.4 L) per hour, providing significant operating cost savings when compared to powering a 4-inch (10.2 cm) system off of a 270-horsepower (201 kW) truck engine. The ECO Series can be powered by Kubota 49-, 85- or 99-horsepower (36.5, 63.4, 73.8 kW) auxiliary engines and matched with 500- to 1200-gallon (1892.7 to 4542.5 L) spoil tank capacities, which can be mounted on a new or used truck chassis, and off-road carrier chassis for access to difficult projects. www.mclaughlinunderground.com
