VacMaster System 4000
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 "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' system.
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 itself.
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. Lower potential liabilities and satisfy your client's demands with the Drilex VacMaster 4000 system.
