Here at Ditch Witch West, we are proud to carry the most cutting-edge lineup of trenching and vacuum excavation equipment on the market. In this edition of the Ditch Witch West blog, we’re taking a look at our leading hydro vacuum trucks or hydrovacs. Let’s take a look at our two most popular models, the Rival Hydrovac T7 and its larger successor the T10.
Hydrovacs use high pressure water to cut and liquify the soil. They can also be used simultaneously to vacuum, removing soil during an excavation task. These powerful hydro vacuum trucks turn stiff terrain into muck while simultaneously excavating the soil.
Rival Hydrovac T7
First, let’s take a look at our T7 Rival Hydrovac. The T7 is the model that gave Rival its name. Extremely easy to operate, this model also includes several safety features, such as ESD shutdown, a grounding stud, and an alarm that ensures the boom is in proper position. The go-to unit for many utility contractors, the T7 Rival Hydrovac includes features such as:
- Hydraulic hoist and pressure off options
- 28" Vacuum
- Aarcom Wireless Remote Systems, including SmartWand Feature
- (4) 200 Gallon Poly Water Tanks, Plumbed for Equalization
- 7 cubic yard capacity
- Standup locker box
- 6" Top Mount Rival Boom
- & more
Rival Hydrovac T10
Looking for a larger model? The T7 tandem model became an industry leader in the mid-size class, but Rival soon received many requests to offer a larger model. In 2018, Rival released their T10 model. It offers all the features of the T7, but has larger capacities, a bigger boom and blower, and an optional larger water pump and boiler. This powerhouse of a hydro vacuum truck includes features such as:
- Frame-mounted storage boxes
- back of cap sign box
- on board scale real time weights display on remote
- tridem, tandem SPIF23 and 6 total axle quint
