Vac-Tron builds up Texas First fleet

Texas First Rentals supported operations by increasing its fleet of rental machinery with the addition of Vac-Tron Equipment vacuum excavators.

Texas First is an industrial machinery rental services company ­– a sister company of HOLT CAT® – the offers a range of equipment from leading manufacturers like Caterpillar, Vermeer and more.

The company offers specialty equipment like booms and aerial platforms, as well as pumps, welders, concrete and masonry equipment and tools, and vacuum excavators.

In order to build its rental fleet with quality machinery that would offer the best value to customers, Texas First considered the relationship and support needed.

“The most important factors in determining what fleet we bought was the relationship we have with our dealer support network and the fact that we can utilise one model and maintain a commonality of parts,” said Texas First District Manager Colin Martin.

“We started buying the Vac-Tron machine when we initially started the company back in 2015.

“It’s a product that appears across all our stores; we have about 15 stores across the state of Texas.

“I would recommend these machines to others just for the ease of use, ease of maintenance, service ability concerns, and the return on investment,” said Mr Martin.

Texas First Outside Sales Rep Michael Rutledge said that stocking the fleet of Vac-Tron excavators gave an advantage over competitors.

“The best advantage for us to be carrying Vac-Tron is our competitors don’t, so we have the upper edge.

“So, for an outside sales rep, it’s an absolute gold winner. The hydro vac makes it simpler and safer to use than the conventional excavator.

“I hear probably weekly that our customers are very satisfied with the product.

“At this current location, there are three customers that currently use these Vac-Tron’s monthly, some even use them long term on a 3- to 6-month basis.”
