Off-Road Jet Vacuumation
No location is off limits for Lanes Group when it comes to drainage services thanks to its range of off-road jet vac units.
With the Met Office predicting that Britain’s weather is becoming more extreme, increasing the risk of localised flooding, demand for their use is expected to grow.
The Lanes utilities hub in Stafford now operates two off-road jet vac units which can be made available for use across the UK.
The jet vac units, towed by a farm tractor, are proving invaluable for cleaning and repair work on pipelines across agricultural land,
The off-road jet vacs are in regular use for our wastewater contract
work with Severn Trent Water. They are also available for customers across the UK.
Two different off-road jet vac units are available. One has a 3,000
gallon tank, 75 gallons per minute jetting and 1,200 cubic feet per minute suction.
The other has a 2,000 gallon tank, 55 gallons per minute jetting and 600 cubic feet per minute suction.
As well as being deployed on Severn Trent Water projects, they have been used for culvert de-silting for Network Rail and drainage pipe cleaning for large country parks.
Lanes also operates tracked remote jetting reels, which can be used to extend jetting hose reach in remote areas, and which are available for hire across the UK.
These all-terrain jet vacs are ideal for utility companies, farmers or land management companies who want to be sure they can properly maintain their drainage systems.
Utility companies and land owners, including farmers, are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of keeping drainage systems in good condition.
Weather experts are warning that the UK will experience more regular extreme weather events, increasing the risk of flooding, with damage to agricultural land of significant concern.
one blocked culvert in a remote spot could result in the destruction of valuable crops, damage to amenities and serious disruption for transport networks.
That is why we have invested in this off-road jet vac capability. It means we can respond quickly and cost-effectively to requests for help in maintaining drainage systems in remote areas and provide a seamless service.
