At Wachs we’re often asked, what is the best vehicle platform to select for a valve maintenance system? Is it a dedicated trailer that can be towed behind your fleet trucks, or a skid system that has Wachs components bolted down to a steel skid, that in turn can be easily mounted to any medium duty flatbed truck? The answer is they are both a good choice, but it depends on your needs and preferences.
Our Valve Maintenance Trailers, designed to carry the highly versatile ERV-750, and in the case of the Grand LX the powerful TM-7 SD Plus, are the industry standard for a completely upgradable, versatile platform designed to transport all the valve maintenance and vacuum tools needed in the field. Built to withstand the rigors of years of service, it’s the perfect solution for municipalities or contractors looking for a rugged, long lasting self contained system.
Wachs VMT Valve Maintenance Trailers offer the advantage of any medium duty pickup truck being able to tow it, so there is no need to have a fleet vehicle exclusive to the task. This is often preferred by small to mid-size municipalities with limited fleet units. You can specify exactly the model and configuration that that fits your budget and your workflow.
Wachs Compact LX trailer includes the basic building block of a valve maintenance program, our class leading ERV-750 extended reach operator with a reach of 13 feet (3.96 meters) and powerful 750 ft/lbs of torque. It's ideal for municipalities or contractors looking for a smaller, affordable, easily transportable and long lasting valve exercising trailer.
Wachs Standard LX trailer is a single valve turner trailer that includes our class leading ERV-750 extended reach exerciser, our TC-100 wireless handheld tablet controller with VITALS software and datalogger, a powerful vacuum, 250 gal powered spoils tank, a high pressure washer system with 95 gallon water tank, and a HTMA Class II hydraulic power unit. This is the industry “standard” for a completely upgradeable, versatile platform designed to transport all the valve maintenance and vacuum tools needed in the field.
Wachs Grand LX trailer includes two valve turning machines, our class leading ERV-750 extended reach operator and the powerful TM-7 SD Plus ideal for freeing larger or stubborn valves, with its ability to develop 2,500 ft/lbs of torque in a controlled, user selected profile. To this is added Wachs wireless TC-100 handheld tablet controller with VITALS software and datalogger, a powerful vacuum, 250 gal powered spoils tank, a high pressure washer system with a 95 gallon water tank, and a powerful HTMA Class II hydraulic power unit.
Wachs Standard LX and Grand LX trailers are available in your choice of gasoline or long lasting diesel power. Often matched to the fleet vehicle type used to tow it for fueling commonality, both engine choices deliver plenty of reserve power to handle the toughest job.
