Vac Truck

Vacuum Excavation Trucks

The APU Fleet boasts multiple conveniently sized trucks with varying capacities to suit your project and job site. 

Our Capabilities

Vacuum Excavation Trucks, also known as Sucker Trucks, play a safety role in many underground and subsurface construction jobs and projects.

The use of Vac Trucks reduces above-ground congestion for the everyday traveler. This is due to the fact that the equipment can set up at a location further away from the site itself.

Our Vac Ex Trucks can be used for sewer or pipe rehabilitation, as well as pole installation. One of the reasons APU is so passionate about Vacuum Excavation is that, unlike other methods, it reduces the risk of disturbing the surrounding soil. This helps leave the undisturbed earth and ground naturally and heavily compacted.
