Ontario's Highway Traffic Act is Now in Effect!
If your business relies on hydrovacs for excavation, the load limitations of new regulations are a weighty problem.
MTO, state, provincial, and municipal regulations will affect your business. With fines for noncompliance reaching as high as $20,000, hydrovac owners have good reason for concern!
Fortunately VACMASTERS can solve your weight problems and increase your productivity at the same time. If your vacuum excavation fleet needs to lose a few thousand pounds, VACMASTERS has the solution.
Nothing is lighter than air!
Even when fully loaded with debris, VACMASTERS' air-vacuum excavation systems easily comply with the new, more stringent regulations. You won't have to sweat the weigh-in stations and the possibility of costly overweight tickets.
Weight isn’t the only reason to switch
Although regulations like Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act are making weight a critical issue for vacuum-excavation fleets, there are many additional factors that make air the clear choice for productivity and profitability when compared with HydroVac systems.
Don’t be misled by the lower initial cost of a water system. Secondary costs add up quickly. Hydrovacs can be manufactured and sold at a lower price because it takes less horsepower to dig with water. Over time, however, an air system pays for itself many times over because every hole costs less to dig. Consider that, in most soils, air digs much faster than water. Spoils also stay dry to use as backfill. Mud disposal costs are eliminated, and air won’t damage utilities or the roadbase.
The real payoff comes, however, when you eliminate all the man-hours that hydrovacs require — disposing of mud, replenishing your water supply, and hauling in dry fill. Air-vacuum excavation does away with all those time-consuming tasks, allowing you to work more efficiently and more profitably.
