Combination sewer cleaners are solid investments for municipal utilities because they are versatile and efficient.

In 2021, Super Products reinvented many aspects of its Camel Max Series combination sewer cleaners, including the Camel 1200 Dump, Eject and Wastewater Recycle models with the aim of improving efficiency for operators in the field. These models are now all standard with a high-dump subframe.

“The Camel Max Series is effective in all industries. With the addition of the air to hydraulic oil cooler, the Camel is at home being used as a vacuum truck, hydrovac or a sewer cleaner,” says Mike Drott, vice president of municipal sales for Super Products. “You could call it the Swiss Army knife of the vacuum industry.”

The Camel 1200 Max Series Eject and Wastewater Recycle models feature an ejector plate exclusive to Super Products trucks that was built to deliver a safe and fast way to unload. The ejector plate pushes material out, leaving only residue in the body, which can be rinsed with the onboard flusher system.

“The ejector plate in the Camel can dewater the load before leaving the work site, thus making the unit safer to drive. More payload to the dump site and with less water keeps the dump site much cleaner,” Drott says. “With the ejector unloading, we take cleanup from hours to minutes.”

The new version of the 1200 model features a high-dump subframe, allowing users of the Dump model to empty into a 42-inch-high open-top roll-off container, and the Eject model to dump into a 48-inch container. Utilizing the high-dump subframe takes away the need for body-lifting mechanisms or ramps and limits the chance of tipping.

The 1200 Max Series Wastewater Recycle model is capable of cleaning nearly 3,000 feet of sewer pipe per day without using freshwater because of its recycling technology, and all 1200s have the option for a hydroexcavation package so operators can jet, vacuum and excavate all from the same truck.

“When Super Products designs or makes improvements to any of our products, it all starts with the voice of our customers and dealer partners,” Drott says. “Then the engineering and design phase comes in.”

Each Camel is built around a modular platform where almost every option can be bolted on after the unit is delivered, or on a stock unit for quick delivery. Units are built shorter and more compact so they can be used in cities with low bridges and for traveling in congested streets. 800-837-9711;
