Sewer Equipment 800 Series IV truck jet
The 800 Series IV truck jet from Sewer Equipment offers several features designed for cold weather applications. The rear door can close completely with the hose reel fully extended, providing maximum heat retention inside the environmental enclosure where water components are stored. A new feature gives up to 20 gpm of hot water to feed the washdown reel, lateral reel and jetting circuits during cold weather operations. A lack of PTO engagement allows for wintertime recirculation of the water system at highway speeds as a standard feature, saving the time of blowing down the entire water system between job sites. The addition of a centralized water drain makes winterization easy, as there is only one drain to blow down, and a retractable canopy adds protection from the weather. 888-477-7611;
