The machines are the most powerful double-fan suction excavators on the market with a flow rate of 45,000 m³ / h and a vacuum of up to 600 mbar. Each is packed with the latest features including 360 degree cameras, mega power arms and vibrating skips.
This year Vac UK secured the exclusive rights to distribute the Italian specialist manufacturer Longo in Great Britain and Ireland.
Patrick Curran, Vac UK Director, said: “The extra power is a key factor in the Longo’s versatility.
“Vac ex already offers a safer, more sustainable and more cost-effective alternative to conventional excavation methods. The increased performance only adds to the breadth of applications.
“We are seeing very strong demand from our customer base in major civil engineering, utility and construction companies, as well as from the public sector. They rightly expect first-class equipment, great reliability and good value for money, and the Longo consistently delivers its performance.
“At Vac UK we have a clear policy of only making the most modern and best quality suction machines available for rent and sale. For this purpose, we ordered a further 15 machines as required.
“These machines have been described as the Ferraris of vacuum excavation. In fact, the connection with the famous Italian brand goes even deeper: The Longo is used to clear Ferrari’s test tracks at the Modena plant. “
