This year, 2019, marks the 50th anniversary of the introduction of Vactor Manufacturing’s first combination sewer cleaner featuring waterjetting and vacuuming. 

“Public works professionals and others involved in cleaning and maintaining sewers and catch basins recognize Vactor as the first name in sewer cleaners,” says Sam Miceli, vice president and general manager of Vactor Manufacturing. “For 50 years, Vactor Manufacturing has been at the forefront of developing combination sewer cleaners featuring innovative technology, user advantages and customized solutions. The Vactor 2100i combination sewer cleaner, introduced in 2018, is the latest entry in a distinguished line of industry firsts in sewer cleaning technology from Vactor.” 

History of innovation
Vactor Manufacturing was originally founded in Chicago in 1911 as the Myers-Sherman Company, a manufacturer of pneumatic farm equipment. The company later moved its operations from Chicago to the community of Streator, Illinois. In the early 1960s, the company began to design and manufacture a line of sewer and catch basin cleaners for the municipal market to clear clogged sewer lines and catch basins. 

First combination sewer cleaner launched in 1969
In 1969, the company launched the combination sewer cleaner featuring waterjetting and vacuuming. That same year, the Vactor Jet Rodder water pump — the first pump designed specifically for sewer cleaning — was introduced.

Evolution of the Vactor 2100 Series
The Vactor 2100 Series combination sewer cleaner was introduced in late 1989 and has evolved through continuous improvements, driven by customer needs. “Vactor 2100 Series combination sewer cleaners are the preferred products by many operators for both their intuitive design and ease of use,” says Josh Malmassari, product manager at Vactor Manufacturing. “The series features the Modul-Flex design system that allows every customer to build a machine engineered to their specifications, on the chassis of their choice.”

The Vactor 2100i combination sewer cleaner combines performance and a new level of operating simplicity that includes IntuiTouch controls, and an optional RDB 1015 rapid deployment boom. “As the successor to the popular Vactor 2100 Plus, the Vactor 2100i combination sewer cleaner couples unmatched durability with enhanced ergonomics for complete operator comfort and effectiveness,” Malmassari says.

The all-new RDB1015 rapid deployment boom on the Vactor 2100i telescopes 10 feet out and extends the debris hose down 15 feet, minimizing the need for additional tubes, speeding and easing operation in a wide range of dynamic applications.
