The Vactor 2100 Plus features increased vacuum performance and improvements to operator comfort and control, air routing and filtration efficiency and fuel efficiency. Smart Truck concept features have also been integrated on the sewer cleaner, including internal monitoring systems that enable the operator to monitor and troubleshoot flow and pressure, blower temperature and oil level, drive system idle and open vacuum relief. Ergonomic controls make it easier to operate and maintain, and provide an all-around command of the work area. Everything the operator needs to clean sewers is centrally located at the front of the sewer cleaner for maximum productivity and efficiency. The model also features more wireless functions as standard, such as e-stop, hose reel pay-in and -out and reel speed control. 800.627.3171,
