Pennsylvania PRO needs restroom service truck for cold climate

Problem

PRO R.C. Stahlnecker, Milton, Pa., needed a new vacuum truck for portable restroom service. His former vacuum tank had compartments for freshwater and wastewater. Located in a cold climate, Stahlnecker wanted to reload restrooms with salt water in winter months, and batch-mix the solution to charge the units rather than adding salt to the water on site.

Solution

Because the new chassis was tight on space due to new emission standards, adding a separate plastic tank to the unit wasn't an option. So Pik Rite engineered a 1,250-gallon steel vacuum tank with three compartments. In addition, the unit was equipped with dual-side service wands, a low-to-the-ground heavy-duty restroom rack, a driver's side workstation, a 20 gpm wash-down freshwater system, and six work lights for night and low-light work.

Result

Stahlnecker found hauling the premixed solution was more efficient, and technicians serviced more units in a typical workday. 800/236-9763; www.pikrite.com.
