Vac-Con, Inc. introduced the PRO Reel – Precision Reel Operation – elevating combination sewer cleaning capabilities to a revolutionary level. Designed from the operator out, the PRO Reel provides unparalleled flexibility, coverage, and visibility at the heart of the job.
The patent-pending PRO Reel offers 16-feet of traversing motion across the front of the machine and 180-degree articulation for 69.6 square feet of working coverage. With 115% more coverage than the standard Vac-Con articulating hose reel, this flexibility allows operators access to manhole and lift station locations without having to park the unit precisely over the jobsite. A front-mounted camera system and companion ARC visual screen provides 180-degrees of visibility to the driver in the cab with a generous range to park the unit and still have access to the manhole. This capability reduces set-up time by approximately 50%.
Intentionally sourced materials, bolt-on design, and the elimination of an outrigger leg result in weight savings of 500-pounds from the front end when compared to the standard Vac-Con articulating hose reel. The PRO Reel can accommodate up to 850-feet of 1-inch hose.
