Utility equipment: Ring-O-Matic’s new compact vacuum-excavator unit gives rental agencies and startup contractors an economical, versatile hydro-excavator to use on jobsites too small for typical vac-ex rigs. The Ring-O-Matic FT150 with 150-gallon spoils tank mounts easily in the bed of a pickup or can be mounted to a skid-steer via an attachment plate for easy access even in the tight confines of many urban residential properties.
Brian Metcalf, Ring-O-Matic CEO, said, “The FT150 completes a range of sizes available for applications in a wide array of restrictive environments, including those in which larger rigs just won’t fit or are too confined to maneuver a larger rig once it’s on location.”
Metcalf said the FT150 is also well suited to the entry-level contractor who needs a versatile yet economical hydro-excavator with Ring-O-Matic dependability.
