High Dump Option Introduced on Vacall AllExcavate Models

March 19, 2013

Innovative high-dump option for Vacall AllExcavate hydro excavators can raise debris tank up to 76 inches above ground level

New Philadelphia, OH — An innovative high dump option for Vacall AllExcavate hydro excavation models has been introduced by Gradall Industries, Inc. This unique design allows the operator to raise the debris tank as much as 76 inches above ground level, and shifts the tank horizontally 21 inches beyond the rear bumper.

This debris tank repositioning enables the AllExcavate to dump material into roll-off or other containers on the job site, rather than losing productive hydro excavation time driving to off-site dumping locations. A wireless remote control system allows the operator to get a clear view of the dumping process and avoid spills.

The rugged, oval shaped debris body also features an innovative tailgate design that opens, closes and locks easily, with an optional flushing system that cleans out the interior of the body. Standard and optional debris bodies and water tanks are available with lifetime warranties, expanding the machine’s working life.

The highly efficient AllExcavate model generates high pressure water flow and vacuum forces to remove dirt from around water, sewer, gas and other utility lines as well as around foundations where mass excavation is not possible or practical. In the oil and gas industry, AllExcavate models can perform highly efficiency frac tank cleanout. Available water pumps work at 10 and 25 gpm with 3,000 psi.

Another popular option on AllExcavate models is a cold weather package. This feature includes heated cabinetry that encloses the boiler, warming the water for hydro excavation when temperatures drop below freezing.

AllSmartFlow CAN bus intelligent control system is standard on every AllExcavate Hydro Excavator model

Standard on every AllExcavate model is the AllSmartFlow™ CAN bus intelligent control system - an integral feature of the Vacall "Green That Works" package of advantages. The AllSmartFlow system can improve operating efficiency, monitor water usage and minimize downtime for water tank refills. With a programmable LCD display, the operator can monitor engine, water-flow and vacuum performance while also precisely controlling boom and reel adjustments. A fully proportional pendant, either wired or wireless, is programmable to ensure productive control away from the chassis.

AllExcavate models use just one engine for chassis movement and to operate the jetting and vacuum hydro excavation functions. Unlike other machines that require two engines, the AllExcavate single-engine advantage can reduce fuel consumption, cut down on harmful emissions and save time and money on routine engine component maintenance while also holding down the cost of the unit.
