Vac-Con recently expanded its construction and utility (CU) dealer network with the addition of the Ring Power Utility Equipment Division.
Ring Power is a privately held, heavy equipment distributor headquartered in St. Augustine FL. Ring Power, established in 1961, is as an equipment supplier with one of the industry’s largest product lineups, all backed by “best-in-class” parts and service support, Vac-Con said.
As a CU dealer, the Ring Power Utility Equipment group will provide contractor end-users with rental and sales of the Vac-Con hydro-excavation product line for primary use in the construction industry.
“Ring Power has an upstanding reputation in the construction industry, which is primed and ready for hydro-excavation machines,” said Todd Masley, executive vice president of Vac-Con. “Our dealer partnership with Ring Power is a strong foot forward into this sector, in which the importance of safe, non-destructive digging is becoming a resounding factor.
“Our hydro-excavation machines, both truck and trailer-mounted, are designed to function as either individual machines or in tandem with traditional methods of digging often seen on the job site. Ultimately, we see this opportunity with Ring Power propelling us into a new market with confident optimism of the results to follow.”
The hydro-excavation portfolio includes the X-Cavator and Mudslinger machines. The X-Cavator from Vac-Con is a truck-mounted hydro-excavation machine designed to handle tough jobs but with the utmost precision including trenching, potholing, daylighting, exposing underground utilities, oil and gas distribution lines, and much more. The X-Cavator units are available with:
