Vac-Con Inc. recently announced the addition of an exciting new option to enhance its venerable two-engine design combination machine — a gasoline fueled auxiliary engine. 

This new option can replace the soon-to-be-required Tier IV diesel engine with an intelligent and economical alternative. The Ford V-10 gasoline engine meets all horsepower requirements for all water pump options from 30 to 120 gpm and up to 3,000 psi, while offering a compact and relatively lightweight installation; when combined with an adequate fuel supply for a full day’s operation, it weighs no more than a comparable diesel. 

In addition, the engine can be modified to operate on LP, NG, CNG or LNG as required. This reliable option allows operators to choose the flexibility of two-engine design without paying premium prices for expensive Tier IV diesel engines, while being environmentally responsible in meeting all 50 state emission requirements, and has an added advantage — it’s almost incredibly quiet when compared to diesel power. 

Since 1986, Vac-Con, has manufactured more than 6,500 custom-built, truck-mounted machines to serve the public and private environmental markets worldwide, and now employs nearly 300 people at its single location in Green Cove Springs, Fla. Vac-Con is a subsidiary of Holden Industries Inc., of Deerfield, Ill., and is 100 percent employee owned.
