NISKU, ALBERTA (Oct. 2, 2019) – Westech Vac Systems, a leading provider of rugged, high-quality vacuum truck-mounted solutions, today introduced the compact Coyote hydrovac for utility, municipal and contractor customers in Canada. The mid-sized unit was designed as an ideal option for customers working in urban and metro environments who need maximized legal payloads and who value a rugged, durable and industrial-grade hydrovac truck that can easily maneuver in tight, confined spaces without compromising productivity, performance or legal payload.
“Like the full-sized Westech Wolf hydrovac, the Coyote was designed to constantly maintain the centerline for the water tank and debris body,” Schmitt said. “As water is reduced and debris is loaded, the weight increases on the individual axles equally.”
The Coyote’s debris body is positioned on the optimal spot of the chassis to ensure the payload is proportionately distributed across all axles simultaneously. “The goal with Westech hydrovac trucks is to efficiently use as much axle capacity as possible, while keeping the design safe and productive, resulting in more time on the job and a reduced risk of overweight penalties,” Schmitt said.
The Westech Coyote features industrial-grade hydraulic and electrical systems which simplify use, field troubleshooting and repair. “Our customers expect a piece of equipment that is built to last; but if and when there’s an issue, they can quickly and easily fix it in the field,” Schmitt said. “Westech equipment works in some of the most remote locations in North America, where parts and service availability are virtually nonexistent. Being able to get up and running quickly is paramount.”
The Coyote vacuum excavator is supported by Westech’s premier dealership network through Joe Johnson Equipment and Vimar Equipment, offering multiple parts and service locations across Canada, as well as a
factory-direct sales channel. In the United States, Westech is TRUVAC branded and supported through the TRUVAC distribution network and is represented by Federal Signal’s Environmental Solutions Group’s direct sales channel, as well as FS Solutions’ 12 locations across the country.
The first certified code vacuum truck manufacturer in the province of Alberta, Westech Vac Systems is considered one of the largest mobile vacuum tank manufacturers in Canada. For nearly 30 years, the company has established a reputation for listening to its customers’ needs and finding new ways to constantly improve. Supported by an experienced and knowledgeable team of engineering, sales, manufacturing and service professionals, Westech’s products are designed for extreme environmental conditions.
