Vactor Manufacturing’s Vactor RDB 1015 rapid deployment boom improves the efficiency of sewer cleaner operators on cleaning jobs. It takes several minutes for operators to lift additional debris tubes off racks, maneuver the truck’s boom, and clamp the tubes into place. The new rapid-deployment boom is an option on Vactor’s 2100 series combination sewer cleaners.
The patent-pending boom telescopes 10 feet out and extends the debris hose an additional 15 feet down for faster cleaning of catch basins, manholes, and lift stations.
The boom’s ability to extend and retract 15 feet of vacuum hose reduces — and in most cases, completely eliminates — the set-up and tear-down time required to assemble additional debris tubes. The boom can also maintain a lower profile, which allows the combination sewer cleaner to clear low overhead obstacles and still reach needed depths.
The RDB 1015 boom can stow with the catch basin tube attached on the truck, making it easier to begin work immediately.
