Tracked Vac

Off-Road Excavation:

Everything you need to know about Pier UK’s new Tracked Vac

The words ‘off-road Vacuum Excavation’ are usually met with nightmares about ground protection mats and temporary haul roads. But thanks to Pier UK’s new Tracked Vac, these laborious and sometimes unreliable methods could soon be a thing of the past.

So what is the Tracked Vac?

The Tracked Vac is the first Vacuum Excavator of its kind in the UK. Designed especially for use on off-road terrain, the Vac Ex’s unique tracked design allows it to travel over almost any terrain, making it the perfect choice for excavation work in tricky locations.

How does it work?

The Tracked Vac works in the same way as a traditional Vac Ex. With a remote control suction arm, the systems operator can excavate the area around buried services quickly and safely, without the need for mechanical diggers. The excavated earth is then stored in an inbuilt chamber ready to be disposed of.

What are its capabilities?

With many of the same features as the popular Dino 3 range, the Tracked Vac can excavate up to 2m3 per hour and the spoil container can hold up to 10 tonnes. The remote control arm has an operating distance of 3.5m and can work at depths of up to 5 metres with the standard on pipework on board.
