Vactor Mfg. Launches New Products at WWETT Show

Vactor Manufacturing, a subsidiary of Federal Signal Corporation and the industry-leading brand of sewer cleaning equipment, is launching new products at the 2020 WWETT Show in Indianapolis. The company is unveiling a new version of the Vactor Ramjet, a truck-mounted water jetter, and is launching Vactor iMPACT, a versatile new combination sewer cleaner.

As the successor to the existing Vactor Ramjet model, the new version redefines simplicity, featuring the exclusive IntuiTouch technology that delivers improved operating ease, quick accessibility to key information and greater control job after job. IntuiTouch in-cab controls provide PTO activation at the touch of a button. And, outside, operators can use the IntuiTouch ergonomic control station that features a simple, up/down adjusting control panel for all cleaning system functions. The new Vactor Ramjet also offers improved water plumbing, allowing for greater storage options.

The water jetter will continue to offer the proven standard and optional features that have made the Vactor Ramjet a popular choice with municipalities and contractors. Features including the Jet Rodder water pump that delivers smooth continuous flow at the nozzle for general cleaning and root cutting and Park-N-Clean technology that allows operators to park near a manhole to begin cleaning in a matter of minutes come standard. The Ramjet also includes a superior cold weather package that separates wet and dry items and a rear hose reel with optional integral aluminum shroud for optimal performance in cooler environments.

“The Ramjet is one of our premiere products with a proven record of performance, but we wanted to take it a step further and provide greater precision, enhanced productivity and a new level of simplicity for the operator,” said Josh Malmassari, product manager for Vactor Manufacturing. “This newly upgraded Ramjet demonstrates our commitment to innovation that takes our customers to the next level.”

Vactor iMPACT

Replacing the outgoing Vactor 2103, Vactor iMPACT has a compact design that allows it to easily maneuver through tight spaces. A more economical choice for smaller-scale applications, Vactor iMPACT is ideal for cleaning catch basins, sanitary/storm sewers, laterals and lift stations.

Like the highly successful Vactor 2100i, iMPACT will feature the IntuiTouch control system that redefines simplicity, delivering operator ease and efficiency during all sewer cleaning functions. Inside the cab, operators can gain control of all operational systems by employing one-touch controls for quick PTO activation and engagement. Outside the cab, operators find a rotating control panel with up/down adjustment that features a touchscreen and glove-friendly tactile buttons, providing immediate data.

“We’ve experienced tremendous success and have received positive feedback from customers when we launched the Vactor 2100i a couple of years ago,” said Malmassari. “It was a no-brainer to integrate IntuiTouch to the mid-size iMPACT for customers who are looking for a solution that offers maximum operator control and productivity without making a big impact on their budget.”

Other key features include ample storage and enhanced ergonomics that provide optimal operator comfort and efficiency. And, the exclusive Jet Rodder water pump provides continuous flows through its entire operating range.
