Fast-Vac™ SC-Series™ Self Contained Vacuum Loader Shuttles…
Fast-Vac Industrial Vacuum Loader Shuttle



are heavy-duty, powerful, efficient, and dust free industrial vacuum modules, integrally mounted on a hook lift shuttle for vacuum removal of virtually any dry material, sludges, slurries, and liquids from remote or inaccessible locations. It is easy to maneuver for a one man operation.  These heavy duty Industrial vacuum loaders have a wide range of other applications. The Fast-Vac™ Model R1.2S is a heavy-duty, powerful, efficient, and dust free industrial vacuum module, suitable to be picked up by a separate truck with a hydraulic tilting bed, winch, and hook. The shuttle can be dropped, used to vacuum  up virtually any dry material, sludge, slurries, and liquids from remote or inaccessible locations. It is easy to maneuver for a one man operation, and picked up when the hopper is full. You do not tie up a truck during the vacuuming phase.

This self-contained unit  is equipped with a hook lift offloading system for convenient transport on a trailer, chassis or other transport system. This vacuum module is designed to be used with a truck with a hydraulic tilting bed, a winch and hook. The truck would be similar to those used to pick up roll-off boxes.

Each unit can come completely equipped with many options such as the Fast–Vac™ Hydro package including a 270 degree articulating boom. A high-pressure washer system powered by a 3500 P.S.I. Hydraulic Cat Pump.
