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. The pinnacle in trailer mounted valve maintenance systems is Wachs Grand LX, powered by diesel or gasoline engines.
Wachs Grand LX trailer includes two valve turning machines, our class leading ERV-750 extended reach operator and the powerful TM-7 SD Plus on a swivel deck, the latter developing 1,500 ft/lbs of torque for larger or stubborn valves. The Grand LX sets the industry standard for a completely upgradeable, versatile platform designed to transport all the valve maintenance and vacuum tools needed in the field. Built to withstand the rigors of years of service, it’s the perfect solution for municipalities or contractors looking for a rugged, long lasting self-contained system.
Powered by a long lasting Kubota 4 stoke diesel, the Grand LX VMT, Diesel comes complete with a wireless handheld controller with datalogger, a powerful 500 CFM-11in Hg vacuum, a 250 gal spoils tank utilizing Wachs exclusive hydraulic slide, tilt & discharge with a power latching door, here with a side discharge to make room for the TM-7 carriage at the rear.
A 2.5 GPM@3000 psi pressure washer system with a 66 gallon water tank is standard, along with a powerful HPU with a HTMA Class II circuit, 10 gal reservoir, and a fan cooled heat exchanger, delivering up to 8 gpm @ 2000 psi. Loaded with storage and accessories, this trailer is ready to tackle the biggest jobs and your toughest valves. For organizations looking for a single valve turner trailer that does not require the grunt of our TM-7, Wachs Standard LX is a great choice.
Wachs Grand 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.
For those organizations looking for a single turner trailer that does not require the grunt of the powerful TM-7 Plus valve operator, consider our Standard LX trailer. But for those with the need, the Grand LX is grand in every sense of the word.
