Following the VACS-8 air separator model, the Lockwood VACS Mobile is a complete handling and cleaning system mounted on a single semi-trailer. With the aid of high-volume air, growers can clean loads of potatoes easily while minimizing damage as the VACS Mobile efficiently removes rocks, dirt, vines, corn trash and other debris effortlessly.

“The VACS Mobile is the ultimate mobile cleaning machine,” says Lockwood director of business Mike Nilson. “It has all the great features of the VACS-8, but with the addition of the quick change tables to accommodate any operation. The VACS Mobile is made to fit on a semi-trailer and is easily towable at highway speeds—something the competition simply can’t do.”

The VACS Mobile is the most mobile cleaning system on the market. It is entirely self-powered, requiring no outside power source to operate. Its four quick-change tables outnumber those of any competition.

The VACS Mobile’s tare conveyors are all telescopic, bi-directional and speed-controlled, featuring common discharge points and the ability to segregate tare by components. The VACS Mobile is one of the largest-volume capacity machines available (as measured by hundredweight of throughput per hour).
