Vac-Tron LP / PMD Hydraulic Rear Door Adjustment

The Vac-Tron LP (Low Profile) Series (former PMD Series) comes equipped with a hydraulic rear door, which opens fully so the operator can completely empty the contents. To make adjustments to this door, operators should follow these steps:1st: Inside Center Cam Adjustment: Before any adjustments are made, open door and prop door open using door safety prop.To adjust the cam, loosen bolts on cam (1) then move up or down as needed by moving door latches (3) up or down (move both latches at the same time). After adjustment is made, snug bolts (do not tighten).DIAGRAM 1PMD-Diagram 1Close door until door is 2″ from the seal and with a light look inside, the latch needs to be approximately 1/4” (Diagram 1) above the door pin as it passes across. Once this is achieved tighten bolts on cam.2nd: Inside Door Latch Adjustment: Clean the door latches before making adjustments.Use a silver pencil to mark inside of the door latches in 1/8″ increments (see diagram 2). Loosen the (3) ½” bolts securing the door latches with an impact wrench.DIAGRAM 2PMD-Diagram 2Move the door latches towards the door 1/8″. Tighten all three bolts with ½” impact wrench – they must be very tight. Close the door and lock it. Test for leaks by filling with water. Repeat steps if necessary.3rd: Adjust 4 U – bolt manual latches on outside of the tank while under vacuum.DIAGRAM 3PMD-Diagram 3 

Our LP 33 Series: Safer, User-Friendly and Quiet

Vac-Tron is pleased to roll out its new Low Profile 33 Series, a unit that features reduced noise levels, an all-hydraulic exterior rear door, and an overall operator experience that is safer and more user-friendly.The rear door features hydraulics that eliminate the need for external manual safety locks. It opens fully so the operator can completely empty the contents and clean out easier. For operator safety, the door is controlled by push buttons located on the side of the unit.Other available features:

  • Quick connect camlock fittings
  • Two sections of 120.5’ suction hoses
  • Underwater tank hose and wand storage
  • Horizontal wand storage
  • Spring-loaded locking handles

Similar to previous generations of our LP Series, the 33 Series has all the power to remove a variety of wet and dry materials. Some applications include; storm drain clean-out, underground utility locating, treatment plant cleanup, retention pond clean-out, lateral line clean-out, excavation of small rocks and dry sand, mud removal, manhole clean-out, water meter box clean-out, water valve clean-out, car wash cleanup, and emergency road spills, grain silo clean-out.“The quieter operation of the LP 33 is notable,” said Brian Showley, Vice President of Sales at Vac-Tron. “We occasionally hear of contractors getting shut down prematurely at job sites due to noise in densely populated areas. This adds to project delays and overall costs simply because their equipment was too noisy. The LP 33 Series solves that challenge.”Available with the optional hydraulic boom and/or air compressor, the LP is available either trailer-mounted or truck mounted for mobility on the jobsite. Other standard features include a reverse pressure system, 0.5 micron filtration and a heavy duty trailer with torsion axels.
