Compact LX Valve Maintenance Trailer VMT, Gas

Wachs Compact LX is the perfect platform for your ERV-750 when no vacuum is needed, space is an issue and you prefer a light trailer mount solution. The complete trailer weighs less than 1400 lbs (635 kg), measures a compact 63in W x 105in L overall (160 cm x 267 cm), and is easily pulled with light duty vehicles. With its small footprint, the Compact LX is ideal for narrow city streets and tight alleys, for fragile or forested landscapes or anywhere a large, heavy trailer or truck won’t fit.

Designed to carry our powerful ERV-750 (Extended Reach Valve) exerciser and Class II Hydraulic Power Unit, E.H. Wachs Compact LX is compact, lightweight and easily transportable to perform valve maintenance using our Intelligent Automation and HC-100 handheld controller.

As the industry leader in valve maintenance systems, Wachs Utility Products offers a wide range of equipment designed to perform recommended or mandated procedures. Wachs products can help track your valuable water infrastructure and keep it operating at peak efficiency. A great starring point in trailer mounted valve maintenance systems is Wachs Compact LX.

Wachs Compact LX trailer includes the basic building block of a valve maintenance program, our class leading ERV-750 extended reach operator with a reach of 13 feet (3.96 meters) and powerful 750 Ft/lbs. of torque. Built to withstand the rigors of years of service, it is ideal for municipalities or contractors looking for an affordable, transportable and long lasting valve exercising trailer.

Wachs Compact LX supports our industry exclusive VITALS® software that uses “No Assumptions” logic in its programming. This class leading software, developed over the last three decades, has one goal in mind - to eliminate misdirection and over-torquing of valves during operation to prevent damaging or breaking them. Comprised of both mobile and desktop modules, VITALS allows you to set torque limits and record infrastructure details including location, valve-operating direction, and torque applied.
