Vactor Manufacturing has released the next generation of its 2100 combination sewer cleaner.
Vactor 2100 Series combination sewer cleaners fuse high-pressure water jetting and a high-flow vacuum source to scour pipes clean, then vacuum up the material causing blockages to restore and maintain normal sewer flow.
The new Vactor 2100i features the company’s IntuiTouch one-touch control system, which adds advanced, yet simple, controls designed to maximize operator efficiency.
The 15-cm screen with backlit tactile buttons and one-touch control facilitate quick startup and engagement. The IntuiTouch system also provides controls and viewing screen for camera, lighting, recirculation and PTO/transfer case activation. Operator are also able to view the current operating mode, recirculation status, flows and pressures.
“When we launched the original Vactor 2100 Plus nearly a decade ago, we set the bar with technological innovation and customized design,” said Brandon Shelton, product manager at Vactor Manufacturing. “Now, in 2018, we are revolutionizing the industry again with the launch of the 2100i, a state-of-the-art product that combines intuitive simplicity and operational ease with the most advanced technology available. To say we are excited would be an understatement.”
The all-new RDB1015 Rapid Deployment Boom telescopes 3 metres out and extends the debris hose down 4.6 metres, minimizing the need for additional tubes. The boom provides a reduction in set-up and tear-down time, as well as the ability to reach greater depths. The hose reel telescopes out up to 38 cm and rotates up to 270 degrees.
Outside of the cab, the machine is equipped with a single control panel including a 15-cm dashboard screen with touchscreen and glove-friendly buttons. As well, the new articulating controls adjust to the desired location for the operator’s preferred placement. New optional wireless controls include an updated belly pack and handheld remotes equipped with a view screen for monitoring key operational functions.
All water valves are located in the same mid-ship control station, reducing the time and effort of walking around the truck by the operator.
Furthermore, the 2100i features a 1.5 metre dump height, allowing debris to be unloaded into roll-offs of the same height without requiring a lift or ramp.
For the water tank system, Vactor used high-strength, lightweight aluminum to maximize capacity and provide a low centre of gravity. As well, the unique Modul-Flex design provides a large capacity and optimum weight distribution on every truck.
