3-STAGE CYCLONIC FILTRATION
Designed specifically for 3,500 cfm (99.1 m3/min) blower systems, this unique filtration system allows for wet or dry vacuum excavation, while prolonging filter life and keeping maintenance costs low.
PATENTED “CAM-OVER” HYDRAULIC REAR DOOR
Provides a 360-degree positive seal, without additional clamping requirements. The highly reliable cam-over design has no in-tank moving parts, so all maintenance is external.
CAN CONTROLS: FULL-FUNCTION REMOTE CONTROL
The Magnetek Mini-MBT radio remote controls all machine functions and delivers vital machine information through its display. The remote easily straps to the operator, and features an emergency stop. Includes Vacuum Neutral Mode where air is able to run and circulate through the blower without suction or vacuum in the tank, allowing engine and blower to “unload” or free run when not in use to prolong the blower and engine life.
LARGER HOSE DIAMETER
The 6-inch (15.2 cm) , with a 3,500 cfm (99.1 m3/min) blower and 18 inches of hg (.6 bar), gets more work done and lets you take on bigger jobs.
Provides a second level of security, and clear visibility into what each load is weighing. “Hit the sweet spot”. Most possible money, least possible risk!. Air Weigh Scale tied into control system – and programmed to provide operator feedback when load limits are reached.
*Scales are subject to calibration and verification by the equipment owner.
