Developed to meet customer requests for a cleaner, quieter lifter, the new hydraulic "H" models feature the same powerful performance of Vacuworx diesel-powered systems with much lower operating costs. Available for the Vacuworx MC 5 and all RC Series vacuum lifting systems, the hydraulic option takes lifting to the next level.
Vacuworx hydraulic vacuum lifting systems attach easily to excavators and backhoes with a dedicated auxiliary hammer circuit, with or without a coupler system. Because the "H" models utilize the hydraulic system of the host machine, there are no fuel requirements, which saves time and reduces operating costs.
Environmentally friendly Vacuworx hydraulic lifting systems produce near zero noise and air pollution, providing the ideal solution for construction sites within city limits or with strict emission guidelines. Hydraulic operation provides improved start up performance in cold weather and eliminates the possibility of fuel freezing in extreme conditions.
The MC 5H lifter is designed for use with compact host vehicles such as wheel or track type loaders and excavators. Ideal for utility applications, the MC 5H has a lift capacity of 11,000 lb. and is suited for lower weight specifications and smaller material sizes.
The RC Series hydraulic vacuum lifting systems are designed to handle materials from 22,000 to 44,000 lb. in conjunction with large-capacity host carriers. They are best suited for large diameter energy and infrastructure projects, as well as material handling at port facilities, pipe mills and storage yards. Each unit comes with a double set of lugs to accommodate any single or double vacuum pad arrangement.
All Vacuworx Lifting Systems feature wireless remote operation from the cab of the host machine and 360° rotation to position materials without the need for tag line operators on the ground. These features offer a safer alternative to using hooks, slings or chains and help keep personnel out of harm's way.
