Hi Dave
What exactly do you mean by a 'Reach & Vac' system?  Huh We do 100's of vacs but I've never heard of one referred to as such  Undecided

I think we're getting confused here - are we talking about 'Reach & Wash' or 'Reach & Vac'? OTT (Ionic Systems as they are now) don't do anything called a Reach & Vac as far as I'm aware!?

Hi Mike,
The reach and vac is a all in one truckmount system. not got one but seen demo.

Sorry guys my enquiry was for a Reach & Vac not Reach & Wash although that is also on my shopping list.

I was about to talk to a vac company to see if they could put something together on this when I discovered a cleaning company already using their own.

and another company already manufacturing the package, my problem is I can no longer find the company or the link hence my question.

Hi Dave
Sorry, the other guys were right - Ionic Systems (aka OTT) do have a new pole system called the Reach & Vac designed for doing inside glass, etc.
Worth giving them a ring if you were also looking for the standard Reach & Wash system anyway.

Many Thanks guys, I wasnt aware of the truck mount possibilities, the other company I found only did "stand alone type" however Ionic seems a good place to start and Ive ordered a price list. Smiley

It seems Omnipole is another option for the Reach&Wash as well at:

and of course lets not foget Aquatech At:

I have built one of these machines myself, after viewing the one at southwest cleaning and consulting wet and dry vac companies i decided they weren't robust enough and to expensive.  If you are still after one of these machince send me and email and i can give you more detail on the machine and it operation.

The Reach & Vac is readily available as part of a Truckmount multi clean system, or as a stand alone mobile system with vacum poles upto 40ft.

The Reach & Vac was made commercially available March 2003. Ionic Systems will be happy to discuss your requirements
