Types of Road Maintenance Equipment
Several types of machinery apply specifically to road maintenance. Southern Vac offers a range of equipment to help clean and maintain your municipality’s streets and utilities. We offer both new and used machines, such as the following, to give you plenty of options.
Pothole patching machines are a quick and simple way to patch potholes in parking lots or roads. Pothole patching machines cut and remove old, weakened asphalt. The operator then pours hot asphalt into the remaining hole, which seals and protects the road from damage.
Pothole machines are a pothole repair solution that limits disruption and fixes the hole securely. Instead of repaving the entire area, you can repair the pothole and make the road safer for vehicles and passengers.
Hydro excavators use high-pressure water to cut through and liquify soil, while the vacuum simultaneously removes the slurry created and pumps it into the excavator’s tank. These excavators remove dirt without the need for multiple attachments.
Hydro excavators can be used for road expansion projects or cut through and remove excess soil around a new road. They are also used to create holes for utilities at a certain depth underground. They cut through the ground without damaging the surrounding area, unlike traditional excavators.
Road sweepers are essential for maintenance and cleanliness. The machine sprays water onto the ground to prevent flyaway dust while the brushes clean the pavement. Then, the conveyor system transports the dirt to a storage container on the vehicle.
Street sweepers help to remove particles from the road that could cause cracks or damage. They are great for municipalities to keep roads clean for all residents. Heavy-duty street sweepers can also help remove debris buildup from floods or storms and clear the streets.
Industrial vacuum trucks help with the large-scale cleaning of cities and municipalities. Vacuum trucks can be used to clear sewer tanks and pipes to prevent damage to the utilities and keep the surrounding areas clean. You can also use industrial vacuums in addition to sweet sweepers to ensure roads are free of debris.
Built-up leaves and debris can cause roads and sidewalks to become slick, which poses a threat to safety. Specially-designed leaf vacuum trucks can help keep your streets safe.
Leaf vacuum trucks are specialized equipment for road maintenance that removes leaves and other foliage from the street and sidewalks. An operator uses the pipe attachment to suck the leaves into the truck’s rear container. Then, the leaves can be disposed of properly.
