Truck jetters are terrific tools for municipalities in need of heavy-duty jetting power. But sometimes, for a multitude of reasons, a trailer jetter is simply the better option.

GapVax believes that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality and reliability in a trailer jetter, though, and has introduced the G7 to give customers an alternative to a full-size truck unit. According to the company, the jetter’s “Fit and Finish” assembly prior to powder coating ensures maximum long-term durability in an “everyday jetter built to operate seven days a week.”

The G7 jetter is built on a heavy-duty, contractor-grade NATM-certified trailer. Several engine choices including Cummins diesel are all certified and sized appropriately for the water pump combinations.

“This is a unit designed for routine maintenance and blockage removal,” says Zack Shustrick, GapVax project engineer. “The G7 jetter is built for daily use. It can also be used for washdown needs, from lift stations to heavy-equipment cleaning.”

The unit’s hose reel is hydraulically powered with a direct-drive gearbox and variable-speed control. The hose reel offers a 3-foot (curbside) articulation from center of bearing, 180-degree rotation and a capacity of 800 feet of ¾-inch jetter hose. The polyethylene plastic water tank is available in 300-, 500-, 600- or 700-gallon capacities. The water pump is center fed for optimum performance. Another safety integration to note, according to Shustrick, is the precise control of water pressure and flow accomplished with the bypass valve. In addition, underbody water and hydraulic lines come standard in stainless steel for longevity. The control box is weather tight and lockable. The controller is interlocked with safety features that will show low fuel levels, low water and is capable of a complete engine shutdown in the event of an emergency.  

“GapVax dealers and customers all had input in what they wanted to see in our jetter trailer,” he says. “As with all GapVax units, our team focuses on ease of operation and maintenance for the end user and quality components that are readily available for minimal downtime. GapVax has been in the industry for over 40 years, and still stands by our ‘built by the operator for the operator’ mentality.” 888-442-7829;
