The top-of-the-range model is based around the most powerful twin fan suction excavator on the market and includes premium features such as a vibrating skip which improves unloading and reduces the need for manual clearing.
Established in 1978, Roocroft initially carried out safety barrier, bridge parapets and general fencing works. In 2006, it added the capability to provide slip formed safety barriers and concrete drainage channels.
Joseph Roocroft, joint managing director said: “We are often faced with excavating around critical infrastructure and the safety of our workforce is our upmost priority along with avoiding damage to our clients buried infrastructure. This state of the art vacuum excavation unit will greatly help us achieve this ambition.
“The Longo Rhino impressed us hugely and we have every confidence it will repay our investment.”
Sean Gallagher, Vac UK’s general manager added: “We are really pleased to have seen our first delivery go to Roocroft. They share many of the same values as Vac UK and operate to the same philosophy on equipment.”
