Jetter line designed for simplicity and ergonomics

Modern technology makes it easy to get caught up in the bells and whistles when shopping for a trailer jetter instead of focusing on the practicality of a product and how it can benefit your utility.

“It is easy to over-engineer a product,” says Caroline Brown, marketing manager for Vac-Con. “We were conscious of our end-users in the research and development of the VJ series.” The end product of that mindset is a line of sewer jetters designed for simplicity and ergonomics.

According to Vac-Con, the modernized VJ line of jetting trailers gives operators a product that is low-profile, powerful and portable, with enough options and features to cover a range of jobs and applications.

Among the VJ series line is the VJ750, a tandem-axle trailer jetter featuring a 750-gallon water capacity. Standard offerings for the VJ750 include a Tier 4 diesel engine, a 500-foot hydraulically driven hose reel, a weatherproof electronic control panel and a cold-weather recirculation and air purge system. Customers have various water pumps to choose from for desired flows, including 18 gpm at 4,000 psi, 30 gpm at 3,000 psi or 40 gpm at 2,000 psi. Customers can also choose a gas-powered engine if desired and can add features like a wireless remote, anti-freeze tank and multiple lighting variations.

“The whole VJ series is designed specifically for sewer and storm waterline jetting and cleaning,” Brown says. “It is ideal for removing blockages, cutting through debris and cleaning out sewer, storm and catch basins. They are perfect as an addition to a larger fleet, or they can stand on their own for smaller jobs.”

Engineering a product that is simple to use and effective in the field came from Vac-Con listening to and understanding the needs of its existing customers. “Our dealers and end-users were a key resource for developing a product that exceeded customer expectations and could get the job done,” Brown says. “From there, we evolved features that were tested and true and integrated them into the streamlined, low-profile offering of the new VJ jetters.”

Vac-Con says it wanted a product that could compete in the market and serve as a direct reflection of the Vac-Con name and its 35 years of sewer cleaning expertise. Since releasing the VJ750, Brown says there has been a lot of buzz in the industry about the product and the feedback Vac-Con has received from operators using it has been extremely positive. 888-920-2945;
