Industrial Vacuum Equipment Corporation's first vacuum ever manufactured was for a customer that was looking for a better way to get rock and stone off flat commercial roofs. In 1992, with help from several roofing contractors, we developed our first roof vacuum, the Hurricane™ 600. Since that time, the Hurricane™ has become the roofing contractor's choice for a high quality, high production, low maintenance, affordable roof vacuum.
Industrial Vacuum's Hurricane™ models 600 and 755 are the two models that work best for this application. Both units have 3,660 CFM, the 600 is a 170 horsepower diesel and can pull 16" of mercury. The 755 has 225 horsepower and can pull up to 27" of mercury.
Both units can vacuum pea gravel or 2-3" river rock (ballast) up to 1,000 feet. The 755 pulls harder at those longer distances.
All Hurricane™ roof vacuums automatically discharge vacuumed material into any dump truck, dumpster or container up to 11 feet high (up to 9 feet is standard on all models).
Industrial Vacuum Equipment stocks all the necessary hoses and attachments to make roof rock removal a simple, turnkey operation.
All you need is two men and a dump truck or dumpster to begin putting extra money in your pocket.
