Hulcher Services' Guzzler® hi-rail vacuum trucks are rail-ready, boom equipped, self-contained vehicles that use vacuum power to remove contaminated and unwanted materials. Material removed is stored in the Hi-Rail's large collection tank for subsequent treatment and disposal or reuse*.
These custom designed Guzzler® hi-rail vacuum trucks can be mobilized to the most remote areas not accessible by road. Our capabilities range from simple track cleaning to emergency derailment and environmental cleanups. Our units are perfectly designed to perform railroad vac truck services, as well as grain transfer and cleanup services for the grain industry, and spill and cleanup services for various other industries as well.
Unlike other units, which are configured solely for track use, the Guzzler® hi-rail vacuum truck operates on both rail and road. Within minutes, the Guzzler® Hi-Rail Truck can be converted from road-ready to rail-ready.
The hi-rail vacuum truck is used for Mechanical / Railroad Services, Track Maintenance / Maintenance of Way / Engineering Services, Environmental Services, Transfer / Load Adjustment Services and Disaster Response.
Guzzler® hi-rail vacuum trucks are used for a wide variety of services, including:
When it comes time to transfer grain, Hulcher maintains transfer grain trucks within the network. Hulcher has high volume self-contained grain vacuum units that can quickly transfer grain from storage areas or railcars to anywhere you need the product.

|Case Study - Air Excavation / Vacuum Truck
Chronic mud problems created potentially dangerous softness and flex in the rail for one railroad company, especially on those stretches of track that ran along a river. The situation became more dire after flooding added to the mud in these areas. Unfortunately, the steep banks on either side of the track did not permit the use of an off-track undercutter.
|Case Study - Hi-Rail Vacuum Truck Performs Industrial Cleaning of Locomotive Service Terminal Work Bay
A sump pump broke at a locomotive servicing terminal, allowing fluids from the engines to collect in the service bays trough. The customer needed a hi-rail vacuum truck to clean out the trough so the pump could be replaced.
