Sleeping Bear

We’re excited to formally introduce our newest truck – Sleeping Bear. Why Sleeping Bear? The blower is manufactured in Traverse City, Michigan by a company called NVE (National Vacuum Equipment). Traverse City is famous for Sleeping Bear Cove. This truck will sleep and when it starts to suck it eats silt and debris – like a bear in a honeypot!

The Big Five benefits that this truck delivers to our customers are:

  1. Powerful suction – Sleeping Bear sucks at 940 CFM (Cubic Foot per Minute) or 26 618 Litres per minute.
  2. We can waterblast and vacuum at the same time which keeps our customer’s sites cleaner.
  3. The side-suction makes access convenient for trickier sites, as you can see in the picture of Rupinder vacuuming a cess pit at Bunnings in Wellington.
  4. Quick and easy Pump maintenance
  5. 10000L Capacity means fewer disposal trips.

Thank you to the crew at Waimea for doing such a fantastic job delivering this truck for us.
