Our 2008 VacMaster 4000 is the most
powerful Air-Vacuum Excavator currently made by VacMaster - perfect
for the tough soils of New England. Mounted on a Ford 550
pickup truck, this unit is still nearly as small and compact as the
VacMaster 1000, ready to fit on any job site.
This machine's primary function is to pre-clear wells and soil
borings via vacuum and air-lancing, thus exposing any utilities or
other underground hazards with virtually no risk of damage. It
is also "DOT friendly" meaning it won't damage roadways, and is much
safer to use near utilities. It is also equipped with a high
efficiency absorption chamber silencer and an enclosed power head to
minimize noise levels.
Equipped with a John Deere powerhouse, this machine not only
vacuums the soil, but has a very powerful built in air compressor
with air lance, to help loosen the soil. A two man crew
running this unit can smoothly vacuum down to 5' in a matter of mere
minutes. We often use this machine to reach depths of 10 to
12' - doing so many times faster than your typical 'air-knife'
The VacMaster is designed to safely and quickly return your soils
directly to the borehole, 55 gallon steel drums or roll of
containers. We can even vacuum your soils directly into 55
gallon drums with this machine, completely bypassing the unit
One neat function of the VacMaster 4000 is the automatic
separation of solids and liquids. This unit is able to
separate solids into the tank while allowing for the direct-drumming
of liquids, eliminating the need for a holding tank.
Pre-clearance is quickly becoming the industry standard, required
by many major oil companies, municipalities and consultants.
