VMAC G30+GEN rotary screw air compressor/generator

VMAC’s G30+GEN gas powered rotary screw air compressor/generator combines two convenient forms of power into a single, innovative system. The G30+GEN provides 25 cfm of compressed air at 100 psi and is designed to maintain max cfm 100% of the time. Operators can quickly switch from compressor mode to generator mode for their tools, lighting and other equipment, and the G30+GEN will provide 3,600 watts of continuous AC output. The system weighs only 295 pounds and has a footprint of 7.1 square feet, providing more gross vehicle weight and space for other tools and equipment. 800-738-8622;

OZ Lifting XR Series davit cranes

OZ Lifting Products has launched its XR Series of davit cranes for wastewater and water operators. The Winona, Minnesota-based manufacturer has released the model in 500- and 1,000-pound capacities, but the long reach of the range is a standout benefit for operators. Where other davit cranes typically have reduced capacity when it is in the longest reaching position, this series maintains its maximum capacity rating in all configurations. This means wastewater and water professionals can lift more weight, further out, which presents many benefits for numerous lifting and material handling applications. The smaller crane weighs only 57 pounds and the larger crane weighs 95 pounds. Both have a maximum 62-inch reach and maximum hook height of 87 inches. 800-749-1064;

All-New Brandt HX120 hydroexcavator

The all-new Brandt HX120 hydroexcavator is a high-output unit with a 1,150-gallon water tank and 11.6-cubic-yard debris tank. Nimble enough for urban settings, the HX120 helps contractors work more efficiently with maximized legal load weights, quicker debris loading and unloading time, and the capacity to take on larger jobs without load weight concerns. Real-time measurement of water and overall truck weight enables operators to make quick, informed decisions, which reduces the risk of damage or overweight penalties. The new unit features a 28-foot boom reach with 340-degree rotation. 866-427-2638;

New Vacall AutoValveSystem Option for AllJetVac Models

The Vacall AutoValveSystem option available on AllJetVac models is designed to improve operator efficiency and simplify switching water functions with the press of a button. The AVS all-electrical system option allows operators to switch from jetting to washdown or optional tank flush from the AllSmartFlow control panel. No need to open or close manual water valves. This innovation also includes a new electric switch bank for raising or lowering the debris tank and tailgate and turning on or off the tank vibrator or sludge pump to be mounted anywhere on the truck. The Auto Valve System is compatible with front and rear AJV hose reel configurations and works with the belly pack remote control for operation of all functions. 800-382-8302;

Vortex IMS UV curing system

Accommodating pipe diameters 6 to 80 inches, Vortex’s IMS UV curing systems deploy an ultraviolet light chain and infrared sensors to capture data every 12 inches to ensure a complete cure and improve installation efficiencies. Vortex’s new EnviroCure UV liner, developed in partnership with Applied Felts, is pre-impregnated with resin and constructed using a corrosion-resistant, styrene barrier sleeve, non-wicking fiberglass to enhance physical strength while delivering a thinner pipe wall design. Its unique construction enables reinstatements to be performed quickly and correctly the first time with reliable dimpling that clearly identifies junctions between laterals and the main line. Additionally, the liner is cold- and hot-weather friendly, and is ideal for environmentally sensitive locations. 855-949-3441;

Hydra-Flex Revolution sewer jetting nozzle

Hydra-Flex’s new Revolution by Reaper sewer jetting nozzle features a forceful front rotating stream and powerful back jets to cut and clear the toughest blockages. And it goes a step further with a 360 degree rotating subhead with dual jets that completely clean and descale the pipe. The all-in-one tool simultaneously cuts, clears and cleans to help work faster, save water and money. The Revolution is built for 6- to 36-inch sewer pipes and can take on the biggest jetting challenges. The nozzle operates between 1,000 and 2,500 psi with a flow range of 40 to 80 gpm. The subhead is designed to maintain consistent speed throughout the nozzle’s life, and a stainless steel centralizer is included to ensure the nozzle stays centered within the pipe. 952-808-3640;

Reed Manufacturing Feed Tap waterworks tool

The Feed Tap waterworks tool from Reed Manufacturing drills through PVC, polyethylene, cast iron and ductile iron pipe while under pressure using a corporation stop inserted into a service saddle. Compact design with an independent feed control allows the user to complete the tap using a drill for cast iron, ductile iron or polyethylene. Manual power is required for use on PVC, CPVC and similar plastic pipe. The independent feed control advances the shell cutter for tapping PVC pipe as recommended by the Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association.  Designed for use on plastic pipe only, the FTP2000UNIV kit relies on manual drilling operations using Reed PVC/PE shell cutters. The tool comes complete with all corporation adapters, shell cutters, shell cutter adapters and a ratchet wrench with socket to cover 3/4- to 2-inch service lines in PVC and polyethylene. Each machine ships with a sturdy carrying case. 800-666-3691;
