Project Description

The Foremost 1600 Non-Code Hydrovac model allows for larger capacities, but is designed to be mounted on a tridem or a tridem with a drop axle. These units have the same equipment as the Foremost 2000, but can include the 42” (1600SD) or 70″ (1600 HD) van body.

The 1600 Non-Code Hydrovac allows for water capacities of 1600 gallons and a 13 yard debris body. Vacuum power is supplied by the Robuschi RBDV125 blower. The Cat 3560 wash pump and 740,000 btu boiler are also used on this model. The boom is rear mounted, 8” in diameter, fully rotational and controlled by an Omnex wireless controller, which also controls the vehicle RPM, wash and vacuum functions. All offloading functions can also be performed via the remote.

Offloading is performed via a sloped debris floor design and wash out system. The dump door is 48” by 58”, providing a large area to allow for tank cleaning.

Optional 4” Hydratech offloading pump systems are available on this model. This will allow for pumping off in a contained manner when discharging liquid loads. Complete winterization features come standard on this unit.

We recommend the Foremost 1600 Non-Code Hydrovac model for all applications, both in town and in industrial settings.
