Leading contractor makes double vacuum excavator order

7th Mar 2023

Civil and MEICA engineering contractor Ward and Burke is the latest customer to order the Longo Rhino vacuum excavator from VAC UK.

The County Galway-based firm, which operates across Ireland, the UK, Finland, Canada and the USA, has specified two of the world’s most powerful twin-fan vacuum excavators.

The top-of-the-range models are based around a powerful compressor able to generate a flow rate of 45,000m3/h and a vacuum of up to 600mbar. They include premium features such as a body fabricated entirely from Hardox abrasion proof steel and vibrating skips which improve unloading and reduce the need for manual clearing.

Both machines are being built on eight wheel Scania R540XT chassis with 13 litre Euro 6 compliant engines.
