Need a fast and easy way to remove saw-cut concrete? It's time to work smarter with Vacuworx. Now instead of having to break up concrete and pick up the mess, you can simply cut sections and remove them quickly and quietly with the SS 2 Vacuum Lifting System attached to a skid steer. This creates a safer, cleaner work environment without damaging the sub grade. And you're able to move on to the next job faster! But don't just take our word for it. The real proof comes from contractors who use Vacuworx to gain a competitive edge on their jobs. "The SS 2 was more efficient than a jackhammer or other methods we've used in the past…We pulled 46 squares, each weighing about 1,200 lb, in less than an hour. You couldn't do that with a hammer and scoop if you were the best operator in the world." — Beau Hahn and Jon Rhoades, Bedrock Concrete LLC Visit to schedule a demo today! "It is kind of amazing."
