Cummins X12 engine for vacuum trucks

With up to 500 horsepower and 1,695 lb-ft torque, the Cummins X12 is ideal for septic and sewer vacuum trucks. It provides a high power-to-weight ratio and is also the lightest engine in its class, weighing 400 to 600 pounds less than other engines. The lightweight and durable X12 carries more liquid waste without sacrificing throttle response for frequent stop-and-go duty cycles. A new Cummins engine brake also strengthens stopping power over the ISX12, lengthening service brake life. It is fully PTO capable and, through Connected Diagnostics, X12-powered trucks can be wirelessly connected to Cummins product experts for immediate diagnosis of engine system faults.

General Pipe Cleaners stainless steel braid hose

The new high-performance stainless steel braid jet hose from General Pipe Cleaners/General Wire Spring enhances the performance and cleaning power of the portable JM-1000 Mini-Jet and JM-1450 water jet drain cleaners. The durable stainless steel braid makes it easier to slide the jet hose down 1.5- to 3-inch drainlines and more easily navigate tight bends, according to the maker. The 3/16-inch Teflon core reduces flow resistance and improves small-line cleaning power. It is available in 30-, 50- and 75-foot lengths. 800-245-6200;
