Owner Robert Markos bought an over-the-road 2006 W-900 Kenworth semitractor and had it converted into a vacuum truck by Marsh Industrial, adding a 5,000-gallon steel tank and an NVE 4307 500 cfm blower. The rig is powered by a 525 hp Caterpillar engine tied to an 18-speed Fuller transmission and had 350,000 miles when bought. The truck has a hoist for easier cleaning and dual 20,000-pound tag axles to carry large loads. The metallic blue/purple truck has a black cab roof, fenders and hose trays and chromed accents including a large windshield visor, horns, stack and diamond plate protectors for the hose trays. It runs Alcoa aluminum wheels. Work conveniences include top and rear manways, four rear sight glasses, 4-inch inlet and 6-inch discharge valves, heated collars, a Crust Busters tank agitator, 350 feet of hose, rear work lights and warning beacons, and many LED running lights. Graphics are by Signs and Designs of Battle Creek, Michigan. Interior features include air-ride, AC, CD stereo, cruise, power windows, GPS and button-tuck leather upholstery. Driver Corey Markos hauls residential septage and commercial grease-trap waste with the truck.
