A sewer cleaner truck is a road network truck used for sewage works, such as unblocking and pipes cleaning or septic tank draining. The sewer cleaner truck is equipped with a tank and a high-pressure pump. It is called a combined or mixed sewer cleaner truck when the vehicle is equipped with a vacuum pump and a sludge compartment in the tank to vacuum cleaning residues up.
Most of sewer cleaner trucks are 3.5-tonne trucks, from Renault, Mercedes, Iveco, DAF or Volvo. There also exist sewer cleaner trailers and semi-trailers, as well as smaller truck versions to work in confined places. Some manufacturers are specialized in sanitation vehicles (Rivard, Chouette).
In order to answer their clients demands in terms of sustainable development, manufacturers have developed sewer cleaner trucks that recycle to save water ressources : a classic sewer cleaner truck approximately uses 5000 m3 of potable water every year, a sewer cleaner truck that recycle can operate with waste water that is reused after filtration.
