Introducing the SL 2 Subcompact Vacuum Lifting System from Vacuworx. This new name for the popular SS 2, which debuted in February 2016, is a small change, but the company feels it is best for positioning the product as it continues to gain interest around the world and is being utilized with more diverse host machines.
To stay competitive, you have to be versatile. And the tools you invest in should be able to adapt to the demands of the job as fast as you can. The new CM 3 Compact Modular Vacuum Lifting System from Vacuworx is changing the game for contractors who run compact equipment such as skid steers, track loaders, articulating wheel loaders and mini excavators on the job every day—now allowing them to handle materials such as concrete slabs, steel plates and pipe up to 6,600 lb (3 tonne) with ease!
Vacuworx has introduced an attachment to make skid steers in even more versatile – the SS 2 Vacuum Lifting System. With the SS 2, a skid steer becomes part of a system that can lift steel plate; saw-cut concrete, granite and marble slabs; landscape pavers; and other materials faster, safer and smarter.
Completely portable design. Rechargeable battery with eight-hour run time. Rugged lightweight construction. Up to 2,200-pound lift capacity!
Highway construction projects can be particularly challenging, especially when space is limited, roadways are crowded and time is short. Time and budget constraints make it necessary to get the work done faster. Traffic-heavy construction locations make safety a priority. To meet these jobsite demands, Vacuworx introduces the new HL Series Hydraulic Barrier Lifters – a smarter way to handle concrete barriers.
Developed to meet customer requests for a cleaner, quieter lifter, the new hydraulic “H” models from Vacuworx feature the same powerful performance of Vacuworx diesel-powered systems with much lower operating costs. Available for the Vacuworx MC 5 and all RC series vacuum lifting systems, the hydraulic option takes lifting to the next level.
The Octapad from Vacuworx is a flat pad vacuum lifter for concrete slab removal during road and bridge construction. A vacuum lifter greatly reduces the need for traditional slab-removal methods such as air or hydraulic hammers, drills, cables and slab buckets.
Vacuworx has launched a lightweight pipe handling system to lift and position drill stem in horizontal directional drilling operations.
