Vactor truck

The City of Marshfield has purchased a new Vactor truck to be used for jet-rodding and hydroexcavating. With approximately 400 feet of hose, the truck can shoot 80 gallons of water at 2500 pounds per square inch through root-filled clay tile lines and other areas in need of clearing. The truck can also suck up water or sewer material through its large front pipe. A separate spray nozzle, seen on the ground, is for hydroexcavating use. Richard Nevills, water superintendent, said that the vehicle is one that the city will use nearly daily.
