  • Driven by a hydraulically operated 8000 litre vacuum pump which is protected by a top and syphon trap
  • A 2” full length sight glass and 3” glass eye mounted on the front and rear of the tanker indicates when the tanker needs to be refilled
  • A 20” hinged door to the side of the tanker allows the operator safe access to the tanker when cleaning is required
  • A hydraulically operated rear gate valve and a manual side valve complete with an OMAG 6” quick coupling
  • Six heavy duty hose hangers to the side of the tanker keeps all the pipe work in place, particularly important when travelling between sites
