Each Vac2Go Guzzler Classic & Ace Vacuum Truck comes standard with a single elbow intake opening located near the top of the debris body rear door. Clamp the vacuum hose (optional) to the elbow intake or to an 8-6 reducer which has been clamped to the elbow intake. Attach enough hose to allow you to safely reach the material you will be vacuuming. To maintain a safe working environment, try to keep the hose as straight as possible with minimal bends and turns. A short and direct route is always recommended.
In order to provide the best vacuum, use as large a tubing as possible. At the working end of the hose, a light weight, smooth, bore flexible hose is recommended. If necessary, use rigid, aluminum tubes for longer runs. This will reduce loss due to friction and the hose will have a longer life.
Do not change the diameter of the hose throughout the entire length of the hose. If a smaller hose is needed, install a reducer at the truck and run a smaller hose all the way through. Use the largest size that can be handled safely and easily.
Before connecting the last section of hosing, install a in-line safety relief valve. Leave the valve open until you are ready to begin operating the truck and vacuum material. If you are using a pendant that is connected to the master control panel, keep the pendant as close to the working end of the hose as possible. The pendant can also be used to break the vacuum in an emergency.
