1000 Litre Split Vacuum Tanker


This 1000 litre split vacuum tanker was manufactured for emptying toilets across a fruit farm. The tank consisted of a 700 litre effluent - 300 litre fresh water split, for emptying the toilets and refilling their water. A 12v on demand water pump was fitted feeding a spray nozzle for emptying the water side and a MEC1000 vacuum pump driven by a Yanmar diesel was fitted for the vacuum tank side.

The trailer had to be upgraded for off-roading across the farm whilst having the capability to be towed on-road. The solution was to fit the vacuum tank to our 3000kg highway tow trailer. As the customer wanted additional delivery hose the trailer was fitted with additional hose holders to suit.


Constructed from 100 x 50 RSC fully welded and ‘A’ frame drawbar, Hot dip galvanised.
