Vacuworx Lifting System

Vacuworx in Day 1

Compass is bringing a Vacuworx RC 16 vacuum lifting system to auction during our ongoing November Day 1 Monthly Auction.

RC series units are powered by diesel engines and can be hooked up and running in a few minutes. The RC 16 has a lift capacity of 16 tons and weighs about 2,400 pounds. For optimal results while operating the RC 16, Vacuworx recommends pipe from 4 inches to unlimited outer diameter, and flat pads suited to lift capacity.

Vacuum lifting systems like the RC 16 are best suited for use in large diameter energy and infrastructure projects. These systems are used in port facilities, pipe mills, and storage yards across America. Unlike typical rigging equipment, vacuum lifts aren’t slowed down by slings, chains, and hooks, having shorter load and unload times as a result.
