Sewer Equipment of America
The 800-HPR ECO Truck Jet is equipped with the latest hydraulic technology, which allows this unit to operate at a reduced engine speed while still generating at peak gpm and psi power. The lower engine speed means fuel consumption is reduced by 33 percent and noise reduction is 30 percent less at 3 ft and 50 percent less at 25 ft. The new hydraulic system offers the option of using environmentally safe and non-toxic hydraulic fluid that is biodegradable and therefore non-threatening to the ecosystem. In addition, the 800-HPR ECO water tank has an increased thickness of ¾-in. and new bolted baffles – both improvements mean a more robust water tank with a longer life.
