In addition, Vactor Manufacturing also produces vacuum excavators, including the full-sized Vactor HXX hydro-excavator and the compact Vactor HXX Prodigy vacuum excavator. Vacuum excavation uses similar technology as that used to clean sewer lines and catch basins – high-pressure water and vacuum – as a non-destructive digging medium for a variety of utility and municipal excavation applications, including slot trenching, potholing, water valve box repair and locating of existing fiber optic lines, cables and other utilities.
Vactor Manufacturing has created a legacy of sound financial performance, employee empowerment, customer-driven innovation and social responsibility that includes a commitment to the community and the environment.
“Everyone at Vactor Manufacturing is proud of their contribution to this longstanding, successful company,” Weber said. “Even as we celebrate 101 years in business, our employees are building upon our heritage of expertise and innovation. Having a talented workforce that can adapt to changes in the industry is another important component of our past – and future – successes.”
