Utility Locating $ 550 $ 2,000 $ 6,000

Reduce potholing costs, increase production and reduce damage claims with the VACMASTER SYSTEM 1000. This state-of-the-art system works above ground from a small hole to expose buried utilities for verification and repair. Trailer or truck mountable, this system makes air-vacuum excavation affordable, giving you plenty of power for potholing in tight places. The high-pressure air breaks up the soil for easy removal by its powerful vacuum, keeping the spoil dry for backfilling. Plus, potholing with air is faster in most soils, eliminating disposal problems and is much safer for you and your utilities. With higher performance and greater efficiency, air has the power to get the job done. For times when you are potholing in sticky clay or hard caliche, high-pressure water is also on board.

For low cost, high performance utility locating in a compact size, rent the VACMASTER SYSTEM 1000 from Environment Equipment & Supply today. Put the power of air to work for you.
