Project Justification

This piece of equipment has become Public Works most valuable asset, not only in cost but in labor savings as well. For example, it would take two workers 2-3 hours to pothole for underground utilities where now it might take 0.5 -1 hour with the Vac truck. The ability to clean and clear sewer mains fast and efficiently
