When it comes to your work-site equipment, one size does not fit all. In the pipeline market, rules, regulations, and other simple factors like getting from Point A to Point B play a role in what you’ll choose as your go-to unit. So many areas of the world do not allow “mechanical digging” near any underground utilities or pipelines. Ledwell has developed a solution for these situations!
The Ledwell TrakVac combines the reliability and innovation of several of our Vacuum Systems and utilizes the “Go Everywhere!” capability of the Prinoth Panther T12. Its specific purpose is to get a compact Hydro Excavation unit anywhere you need it to be – places where a normal wheeled truck can’t even begin to reach. This vacuum unit functions similarly to our Blower Vacuum Truck. It’s equipped with a high-pressure water system and 1600cfm vacuum blower. With a GVWR of 55,000 pounds, the TrakVac on the Prinoth Panther T12 has a ground pressure of approximately six pounds per square inch. We recently unveiled the TrakVac at ICUEE, where a record number of utility and construction professionals got to see our new product. Our goal was to give you something trusted and reliable that would work in a different environment.
The TrakVac is a self-contained unit, autonomous from the engine and fuel supply of the crawler. It is geared to work alongside other tracked and heavy equipment on right-of-ways during pipeline construction and maintenance operations. At Ledwell, we love opportunities like this. If you have a unique situation that requires something not yet on the market, or to learn more about the TrakVac, give us a call today!
