Finding the Right Vacuum Truck for Your Needs

Multiple trucks all being worked on and manufactured into vacuum trucks at Flowmark KC
When starting off in this line of work, it can be a bit of a daunting task trying to figure out which equipment to purchase and what is best for what you want to do. After all, a vacuum truck is a big investment and you need to make sure you’re getting the right product for your needs. There is a huge range of options out there, each one designed to do a specific job or task. 
The first question you have to ask yourself: what type of work does your business handle? Do you work primarily with septic tanks or grease traps? What about portable toilets? Or maybe, you do a bit of everything and fall somewhere in between? 
No matter what you do, we have a vacuum truck tailor-made to handle all of your needs and make your job easier and more efficient, allowing you to keep moving and getting work done. Below are just some of the great vacuum trucks we sell here at FlowMark, organized according to the job they handle.  


Septic/Grease Trap/Grit Trucks

If your business is focused on pumping out septic tanks or cesspools, servicing grease traps, or even car wash pits, then you need to check out our septic service trucks. Ranging from anywhere between 1,000 – 5,500 gallons, this truck is available in a line of chassis, including Ford, RAM, Kenworth, and Peterbilt. The truck can be fitted with an aluminum or stainless steel tank, top and rear manways, and a rear inlet and discharge.
Some of the standard features on these trucks include a PTO-driven vacuum pump with vacuum and pressure modes and primary and secondary shut-offs, in-cab pump controls using factory switches, and aluminum hose trays with heavy dirty outriggers. 
Customize this truck by adding toolboxes, larger vane pumps, blowers, jetters, and more! 


Portable Toilet Service Trucks

For a truck that focuses on servicing portable toilets and hand wash sinks, there are a few different models that you can choose from depending on the size of your business and what your needs are. 

  • 999 Gallon: While this is the smallest in our line-up, it is a great starter truck for a smaller operation. Popular chassis include the Ford F450/F550 or the RAM 4500/5500. It comes equipped standard with an aluminum tank with aluminum host trays, dual inlets, a low workstation, and dual large cabinets.
  • 1275 Gallon: A slight upgrade from the previous model, the 1275 gallon restroom service truck comes with many of the standard features of the 999 gallon, only in a slightly larger capacity. The base chassis choices are the same, but the tank is 25% bigger, able to accommodate a greater load size.
  • 1500 Gallon: For a mid-size truck with better hauling capacity, look no further than our 1500 gallon restroom service truck. This 2-unit toilet hauler comes standard with a PTO-driven vacuum pump with vacuum and pressure modes, as well as three filters: a primary, secondary, and final filter. Upgrade by requesting a few modifications, such as a pressure washer, a scabbard for the wand, or a garden hose hook.
  • 2000 Gallon: To maximize your outfit and to really make the most of your business, you will want to invest in our 2000 gallon restroom service truck. These large chassis include the Hinto 268A, Freightliner M2, Peterbilt 330, and more! Fitted with an aluminum tank and dual inlets, this 2 unit toilet hauler is made to benefit a large operation. Modify this unit by adding dual bucket holders, dual bottle holders, dual Hannah hose reels, or a pressure washer. 


Combo Truck

If your business handles a combination of services, you will want to check out the 2000 Combo Septic/Restroom truck. Perfect for both servicing portable toilets and hand wash sinks as well as pumping out septic tanks and cesspools, this vehicle is outfitted with an aluminum tank that comes with both a restroom and septic inlet. Standard chassis include the Hinto 268A, Ford F750, Peterbilt 330, and more! 
Upgrade this unit to include a pressure washer, dual control panels, or even a pump scent box. If you’re on the hunt for a truck that does a bit of everything, make sure you request a quote for the 2000 combo today!  


Pickup and Delivery Truck

For a truck that really does it all, the multifaceted 800 Pick Up and Delivery truck is a perfect addition to any operation, big or small. This truck is designed not just to be a pumping unit for servicing portable toilets and hand wash sinks, but is also equipped to deliver large quantities of portable toilets as well. 
Popular chassis include the Isuzu NRR, Freightliner M2, and the Ford F550/F750. An aluminum tank and hoses sit between the cab and the 102” x 10’ flatbed. The flatbed comes with an electric/hydraulic liftgate for easy use. Convenient and equipped with everything you need, this truck is the perfect choice for someone wanting a multifunctional truck.
