Smarter, Safer, Stronger: How Technology Optimizes Vacuum Truck Performance

Jun 14, 2024

Vacuum truck design is a complicated area. With new technology becoming available all the time, we invite you to lean on our expertise in delivering customised, fit-for-purpose, technologically advanced vacuum trucks that deliver Trusted Performance as we continue on our journey to Zero Vehicle Downtime.

Safety now and always   

One of the most impressive gains from technology in our vacuum truck designs comes from cutting-edge safety features. For example:


Advanced camera systems

Our vacuum trucks are designed to mitigate blind spots and prevent accidents with mirror and external environment cameras to detect potential hazards. Sideswipes and collisions are averted by alerting the driver and engaging the brakes if an object is detected in the truck’s path. Furthermore, integrated telematics offer real-time monitoring and coaching to reduce driver-initiated crashes and potentially lower insurance costs​​​​​​​​​​​​.

Weighing systems

Our units are equipped with onboard weighing systems to ensure your vacuum truck operates within legal load limits, reducing the risk of accidents due to overloading, while contributing to the efficient operation of the vehicle, potentially extending its lifespan and reducing maintenance costs to avoid any unnecessary vehicle downtime.


Pumping and Emptying

Advanced technology with efficiency in extraction and load management saves resources, time and money. For example:

Radar sensors

The development of radar sensors built into our vacuum tankers provides accurate level indication, allowing you to determine precisely how much liquid is in your tank. With this level of visibility and control over planning, you will never end up driving to a job you can’t fit.


Pumping systems blower technology

Increased development with our pumping systems and blower technology represents a significant advancement in efficiency and reliability that ensures operations are smooth and uninterrupted. This innovation is particularly effective for the grease trap, liquid waste and light industrial sectors so they can continue safely maintain life-line utility services for the community.


Minimal Maintenance

Technology has allowed us to bring our specialist vacuum truck designs leaps and bounds ahead without adding to the workload of the operator. In fact, the latest technology actually enables us to produce trucks that require little to no work from the operator outside of ensuring regular scheduled maintenance which we provide as a package here at Waimea Group. This approach not only saves time but also reduces the risk of operational errors and when operators have less to be responsible for and to worry about, productivity is increased and vehicle downtime is reduced.
