See our most popular model, the 550 Vacuum Excavator
Vacuum Excavation processes have become popular in the past 15 years. Hydro Excavation machines utilize the cutting power of high-pressure water along with a powerful vacuum for a wide variety of uses. Applications include potholing (utility location), sewer jetting (clearing sewer lines), pit cleaning (sumps and catch basin cleaning), environmental cleanup (flooded basements to hurricane aftermath to oil spills), construction site cleanup, and many other uses.
Ring-O-Matic manufactures hydro excavation equipment on vacuum trailers, vacuum trucks, and skid mount systems. This versatility ensures you will have the best configuration for your specific application.

We do directional drilling and have several trailer vacs from three different manufacturers. We use our machines everyday and by far, Ring-O-Matic is the top of the line. They have a good design and are a work horse. I’m in charge of maintenance and the 550 is very easy to maintain. The bag house drains with no problems and the filters are easy to remove for cleaning. The other brands aren’t as easy to maintain. The high pressure water system is great for clean up. I service the CAT diesel engines every 100 hours and we have no problems with them, they’ll last a long time. The tank capacity is important to us and the machine is easy to move into position. We’ll be buying another drill soon and another 550 trailer vac as soon as we have the drill.

When we purchase equipment, the three most important things are: reliability, productivity, and ease of maintenance. We owned another brand of equipment, which worked well, and then had a Ring-O-Matic demo. We now own three Ring-O-Matic machines. They are exceptionally reliable, at the top for dependability. The rotary nozzle in their emulsifier gun potholes twice as fast as other methods. That’s a big advantage. They are easier to maintain and the parts supply is good. Our crews prefer using Ring-O-Matic vacs. The next vac machine we purchase will probably be a Ring-O-Matic.

We clean septic tanks, portable toilets, and restaurant grease traps. Our Ring-O-Matic pumper machine (trailer vac) is very dependable. The power wash works great. We don’t need parts very often, but if we do our guys say getting parts is easy and that Ring-O-Matic’s parts department gives us excellent service.

We have two Ring-O-Matic vac machines. A small one and a large one. We use them to clean out grain that falls down into semi-truck weighing scales at places like Cargill. We blast out old, fermented grain with the high pressure water system and then vacuum it out. We like the smaller trailer vac because it is so easy to maneuver around the trucks at the scales. We can sometimes take out and empty two loads with the smaller machine in the same time as one load with the larger machine. Both machines work well, and are easy to use.

Ring-O-Matic makes a very good vac. The CAT diesel is economical, powerful, and we have no problems with it. The machine has a good overall design and has a beautiful water system. Our machine has the bag (pneumatic breaker) option that makes it easy to empty the tank completely, even the packed material in the bottom of the tank. Other brands can’t do that.

We have three Ring-O-Matic machines for our directional drilling business. They are older and very good vacs. Our machines run about 5 hours a day, every day. Ring-O-Matic trailer vacs are very practical and the diesel engines are reliable. We like the small footprint.
