Vactor Manufacturing, manufacturer of vacuum excavators, sewer and catch basin cleaners, and industrial vacuum loaders, has introduced the Peterbilt 567 Class 8 truck model chassis option for the company’s HXX HydroExcavator. The new chassis option is ideal for rough environments, according to the company.
Vactor was one of the first OEMs to build on the new chassis, working closely with Peterbilt to lay out the 567 chassis configuration to optimize features for its customers. The chassis design reduces weight for increased payload capacity and improves maneuverability for operating in congested worksites.
Chassis system routing improvements include new air and fuel hard lines and the separation of key air, fuel, diesel exhaust fluid and electrical systems routings, which simplify service, repair and body installation, according to the company.
The new chassis option features a rugged design, spacious interior, and enhanced visibility, ease of serviceability, and non-destructive digging, according to the company.
