Testimonials

One of the greatest pleasures that a business operator can experience is satisfied customers. At Spillrite / Vacteck Vacuums we sell hundreds of air powered, PD blowers, Hydro vacuum excavation, electric and side channel blower systems and in most cases we don't hear back from the client which means that the vacuum system we have sold a customer does exactly what we said it would.  Sometimes some of our customers are so impressed they write reviews or positive comments. At Spillrite / Vacteck Vacuums we pride ourselves in delivering honest and accurate information.

Here are some of those comments.

Got the vacuum and set it up today.  Works well.

Good afternoon,

We recently purchased an Airvac 100 CFM Ex vacuum cleaner.  I would like to say so far we are extremely happy with its performance.

The unit I purchased from Spillrite has enabled me to clean out valve boxes and peform minor hydro excavation work in tight access locations and backyards where my vac truck cant read. I simply take in a long air hose and a long pressure washer hose whilst leaving the air compressor and pressure washer on my trailer in the driveway. I can take the drum out the back on a trolley and do my works there. They are a pleasure to deal with and Rob really knows his stuff.

Hi Robert,


The new drum lid vacuums work really well, the guys on the floor love them.

So, i would like to order two more drum lid Vac heads, just as the previous order.

Just send the invoice to myself with the included transport and i will have
it paid.

Morning Peter,

We are looking at purchasing a Taipan 560 unit from Vacteck Vacuums  and believe you have the 2000 lt hydro.
Are you happy with the unit and any problems that I should be aware of?
A quick note in response would be great fully appreciated.

Robert
Sorry for the protracted silence, we have been in the grain receival preparation mode for some time and still for a few weeks to come yet.
Your prototype has been working all the time since Graincorp checked it over, at our sample stand in Narrabri.
All sample stand staff were very impressed with it. Its performance, effectiveness and vacuum strength is superior to the current make and model available in NSW.
We had clients unable to wait for your production model and were forced to purchase the alternative this season.
Do you have an indicative price yet and when would you expect them to be available?
Our staff using the prototype are practically refusing to give it up. Is there a price to purchase it in the short term?
Cheers.................Wayne

Hi Rob, Thanks for all the support you have provided. We are more than pleased with the pump that we purchased. Michael Shaw -Island Princess Macadamia Nut Co.

Rob,

Several months back I researched air operated vacuums to expedite the process of cleaning out spill containment manholes attached to underground fuel storage tanks, here in the US. I already had a unit I purchased the first of the year from a competitor that I was fairly happy with, or so I thought.  It is large, fairly cumbersome, and requires a special adapter to fit on a 55 gallon drum.  The adapter simply rests on top of the drum meaning the vac, along with the adapter has to be removed every time we change locations, then the drum lid has to be put on to keep the fluid from escaping in transit.  When we arrive at out next stop the process is reversed.  This unit cost me around $1700 US dollars. The vac operation is a little  finicky, but overall it gets the job done.

I emailed back and forth with you, and, with your  help I finally decided on the Fastpump 357.  The cost, complete, was around $600 US dollars.  This unit is powered by a much smaller air compressor that cost $2000: half as much as the compressor needed to power the other vac.

The Fastpump 357 arrived in only a few days from when I ordered it.  My first reaction was \"uh oh...this vacuum is way too small to be able to do what I require.\".  It is probably 1/10th of the size of my other vac.  I mounted the vacuum in the 3/4\" opening of my drum and attached the hose to the 2\" opening, then hooked it up to the air compressor.  I gave it a test run using a 5 gallon bucket filled with water.  I couldn\'t believe it.  The Fastpump 357 sucked up all that water in a matter of seconds.  I did it 4 more times just to make sure I wasn\'t dreaming.  I\'ve been using the Fastpump 357 in the field now for several months and am completely satisfied with it.  It has the suction power to get the job done.  It adapts to the existing lid on a 55 gallon drum so now I only  have to change out lids once or twice a week instead of 7 times a day.

So pleased am I with this unit that I ordered a Super Dragin 357 and a Super Dragin 35 just this morning!

Best regards,

Rob,

First of all I want to express my complete satisfaction with the Fastpump 357 (explosion proof) that I ordered from you a couple of months ago.  I have to admit when the unit arrived I had my doubts.  It is so small!  I operate it with a 17 cfm air compressor and it does a great job!  I use it to clean out spill containment manholes associated with underground fuel storage tanks, here in the States.  Tight quarters as the photos show, however I can clean one out in about a minute.  I’ve attached a photo of one of the spill containment manholes after I’ve cleaned it using the Fastpump 357.  I assume this is now the Super Dragin 357?

Rob I have a need for another of your vacuums.  Let me outline the requirements and see if we are thinking along the same lines here.

I have a 44 cfm air compressor, at 175 psi, gas engine operated, and mounted on a trailer.  The application will be the same as above: cleaning out spill containment manholes associated with underground fuel storage tanks.  I’m usually sucking water, a fuel and water mix or just straight fuel.  When we visit a site for the first time we usually find the liquid along with an accumulation of dirt (mud) and leaves from years of neglect, (all of which is wet).  After our initial visit we usually just find the liquid with a very small amount of dirt.  My thoughts are that I need the Super 35 Dragin, adapted for explosion proof operation.  Do you agree or do you have something you think will serve my needs better?

Rob, If you could quote me on the Super 35 Dragin or what you consider to be suitable, I would appreciate it!

Best regards,

  1. We have successfully trialed the vacuum unit last week but have damaged the drum supplied . While tipping the drum to empty contents , the centre & top of  drum has been squeezed out of round . Lid will no longer fit .        Can you supply a more substantial drum that will handle the high weight of steel shot during tipping / unloading operation .ThanksPeter IrelandReliability Engineer Fence post plantOne Steel Newcastle - 174 Quad for recovering steel shot.

Hi Rob,

I have received the first 2, thanks very much for the prompt service. Look forward to receiving the rest.

Hi Robert,

Fired up the 1600 cfm HP 150 psi compressor, 600 feet away and tested the SUPOCs.

The crowds were amazed ...they sucked grit 20 ft straight up vertically at 80 PSI !!!

..and actually they are not that noisy at all (and Darlington Nuclear Power Station are fussy!).

Very impressive machinery!

Owners (DNGS) and contractor (Crossby Dewar) are very pleased and feeling warm and fuzzy and well vindicated.

The lousy pics show part of the story (better pics to follow).

The Beastly power pack lives in the scaffold tent enclosure, along with the dust collector and the blast pot with the recycler barrel mounted on top.

The main hopper lives outside and its straight up and into the the tank.

Real work starts on Saturday....so by Monday I should have a valid report based on actual real time experience.

Excellent....I am very pleased.

Thank you!

regards

Julian

After the real test Julian responded....

Hi Robert, 
Victory has been achieved!
Monstrous sucking has been achieved and multiple tons of used 16 grit aluminum oxide blasting grit has smoothly moved approximately 16 feet to 20 feet straight up out of the tank, over and down to the hopper ...so the crowds are ecstatic.....and attracting quite abit of attention from within the plant.

By the way, today we spilled 600 lbs of aluminum oxide on to the floor and people started sweeping and moaning.
After questioning their intelligence I grabbed the hose of Beastly sucking Dog, ...it was 20 feet straight up (I measured) over a handrail and down to the hopper which was sitting on the same floor as the spill ...and cleaned up the entire mess in a matter of few minutes, with no hesitation or choking.
Very impressive!
Don’t know any other mobile unit that will do that!
But then....that’s why we came to you in the first place, because, quite frankly, you suck better than all the rest....and I searched long and hard before I concluded that you knew things that others did not.

Rob,

Great...I need a 6X10 ft. trailer for the vacuum recovery system I'm
compiling. As I stated on the phone it has been a hassle dealing with
companies in the U.S.  I can get you further info.  regarding the specifics
tomorrow...I'm busy till 5:00 o clock today. And I'm suppose to get off at 4
o clock.

Thanks a lot Rob


Helio, Hi there. Just an update. I have been trying to co-ordinate all goods
to depart on a ship out of Brisbane with the following details;

ANL Warringa 022N

Receival 27-02/10 @ 3pm 15 days transit

ETD Brisbane 04/10 ETA Singapore 19/10.

At this stage I think it will be too rushed as it doesn't take into account
any delays and I still haven't got a completion date on the fuel trailers.
Also the building of an internal frame to take the third trailer will be a
good half day or longer. Looks like the trailers will be ready late next
week or beginning of the next. So I am going to push back the shipping and
aim to co-ordinate with the departure of the Baffin Strait from Singapore on
November 13th.

-Helio Diaz II

Rob,

Most items shipped to BIOT come from a ship "Baffin Strait" from Singapore,
.  Everything must head to Singapore first and then gets loaded onto that
ship.  I can provide a POC for the shipping person located in Singapore.  I
will provide that info when personnel come back from lunch.

The trailer info: 10 feet long by 6 feet wide, pintle hook , no lights
needed, single axle, and a drop down gate preferred.  I attached a picture
of the exact trailer I was trying to order and had received no response from
the company.

Thanks Rob,  sorry for the late response I've been very very busy.

-Helio Diaz II

Helio, the trailer will be no problem to get manufactured. My contact here
could make it identical to the one in the picture. If you can send me the
details of the guy in Singapore I will get a costing of the trailer either
tomorrow or Monday. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll then find out the process of getting it shipped to
Singapore and then meet up with the Baffin Strait.

Rob,

Thanks for all the stuff...it works great...shirts and hats are awesome!!
Sorry I didn't reply sooner...been busy as hell here.  Thanks again.
