Ballast & Rock Vacuums

Rock and ballast vacuums for roofing contractors.

In 1992, Industrial Vacuum Equipment Corporation designed the Hurricane™ 600 rock vacuum for a roofing contractor that was looking for a better way to remove rock and stone from flat commercial roofs. Since that time, the Hurricane™ has become the roofing contractor's choice for a high quality, high production, low maintenance, affordable roof vacuum.

Our Hurricane 600 and 755 rock vacs offer:

  • 3,660 CFM
  • the Hurricane 600 comes with a 170-horsepower diesel that can pull 16" of mercury
  • the Hurricane 755 has 225 horsepower that can pull up to 27" of mercury at longer distances
  • Both units can vacuum pea gravel or 2-3" river rock (ballast) up to 1,000 feet
  • In addition to roofs, they function perfectly as landscape rock removal equipment

All Hurricane™ rock 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.
