Vacuum Trucks

Vacuum TRuckWhen it comes to vacuum trucks, few tank truck manufacturers can offer the high quality, extensive features and numerous customization options that we offer here at Amthor International, which is one of the reasons we have a reputation as the country’s leading tank truck manufacturer.

Our Vacuum Trucks

First of all, we have both code and non-code vacuum trucks available depending on what your needs are. Every tank is available in steel, stainless steel or aluminum. In fact, our aluminum tanks are the heaviest built in the industry. The following are some of the features and options available for our vacuum trucks:

  • Stationary or dumping tanks built with or without full opening rear door
  • Heavy-duty off-road construction options
  • Tanks with 500 to 8,500-gallon capacity
  • Every tank comes with overturn protection, isolation valves, spill dams and top Girard vents.
  • Several different vacuum pump makes and models are available
  • Choose from several chassis makes and models
  • Choose from several tank interior protection options, such as magnesium anodes or epoxy lining
  • Choose from several tank and tank component heating options.

Our Vacuum Truck Claw Feature

Our vacuum tanks come with a number of useful features and customization options, but one of the options that makes our vacuum trucks far and away the best designed in the country is the “Claw” option.

The Claw is a feature consisting of a number of hydraulic arms that was designed to help the rear door on our vacuum trucks operate more safely. The Claw eliminates the need to use wing nuts along the top and sides of the vacuum truck since the driver will be able to release the door or pull it closed using a lever, which creates a tighter seal than possible through manual operation.

The use of the Claw helps to increase the safety of the driver since they will no longer have to climb up the tank to tighten down the rear door. Our Claw feature is designed so that it locks past center and so that the latch will not be loosened, even if pressure of the tank is lost or the cylinder doesn’t operate. Additionally, the use of the Claw could help save money on repairs caused by improper operation.

What makes Amthor’s offering unique?

We are quite proud of our reputation as the leading manufacturer of tanker trucks in the United States here at Amthor International. One of the reasons that we have earned this reputation is because of the quality of our tanker trucks, the variety of tanker trucks that we offer and our huge number of customization options. All of these things make our tanker trucks particularly unique when compared to our competition.

Our crane trucks, vacuum trucks and tanker trailers in particular are very popular with clients. The following are just some of the few things that make these types of tanker trucks so unique here at Amthor International:

Our Crane Trucks

Our mobile crane trucks are unique because of the fact that they were designed specifically for the transportation of smaller propane tanks. Basically, the flat bed body and the mobile crane combination make it easy to pick up, move and put down vessels exactly where they need to go.

Our Vacuum Trucks

Our vacuum trucks, which are available with both code and non-code tanks, are extremely popular due to one of the most unique features that we offer – our Amthor CLAW. The CLAW is a series of hydraulic arms built on the tank that open and close the vacuum tank’s rear doors.

The use of this feature eliminates the need for wing nuts at the top and sides of the tank. The CLAW allows for a tighter seal and ensures the latch won’t loosen if pressure is lost. The driver can also operate the CLAW with a lever, thereby eliminating the need to climb high in the air to tighten the rear door. Basically, our unique CLAW feature improves both functionality and safety.

Our Tanker Trailers

So what exactly makes our tanker trailers so unique? Besides the huge number of customization options that allow you to build a tanker trailer that fits the exact needs of your business, we focused on building a tanker trailer that will save you time and money. This is because our tanks can be built to hold up to 10,000 gallons and serve the potable water, non-potable water or refined fuel and vacuum industries.

These are just some of the features that make our tanker trailers, vacuum trucks and mobile crane trucks unique. For more information about our tanker trucks or the different features and customization options that are available, be sure to contact us at Amthor International today.

Options for Customizing Your Amthor Vacuum Trucks


There is no other vacuum truck manufacturer as highly regarded in the industry as Amthor International. The reason for this is simple – few manufacturers offer the customization options that we do. Instead of just offering a basic model vacuum truck with a couple of different options, we give our clients the opportunity to fully customize their vacuum trucks in order to meet the unique needs of their specific business.

Vacuum Truck Customizability Options

We offer several different models of vacuum trucks. Our clients can then choose from a number of options as well as add a number of different features when they customize their vacuum trucks to fit their specific needs. The following are some of the customization options available for our two vacuum truck models:

  • Code and Non Code tanks
  • You can choose to build your vacuum truck using a stationary tank or a dumping tank that includes a full opening rear door.
  • Both vacuum tanks are available in steel, stainless steel and aluminum.
  • You can choose from multiple tank sizes depending on your specific needs. We offer vacuum tanks that boast anywhere from a 500 gallon to an 8,500 gallon capacity
  • There are a number of tank and tank component heating options available to choose from.
  • Depending on what you need your vacuum tankers for, we offer heavy road construction options.
  • There are several tank interior protection options available, including epoxy lining and magnesium anodes.
  • You can choose to add our innovative CLAW feature. The CLAW uses a series of hydraulic arms in order to operate the rear door, thereby eliminating the use of wing nuts. This results in a tighter seal and prevents drivers from having to climb up to tighten the rear door, thereby making the overall operation much safer and convenient in general.

As you can see, both of our vacuum trucks can be outfitted with a wide variety of different features customized to fit your specific needs. If you have any questions about the customizability of our vacuum trucks – or about our vacuum trucks in general – please feel free to contact us at Amthor International today.
