The Guzzler Classic (CL) is easy to operate, easy to maintain, and is built to last. The Guzzler CL is legendary reliability and performance that features enhanced operator ergonomics and improved air routing, filtration and maintenance.


Maintaining the 18-cubic-yard capacity, the updated Guzzler CL features an improved radial deflector design to improve material separation in the debris body. The linear wall connection from the cyclone to the baghouse has more than doubled in area, providing a more efficient airflow. The transition from the baghouse to the micro-strainer has been improved, including an elbow and square to round transition for less disruption to the air flow as it moves through the system, reducing pressure drop.


The baghouse and cyclone cleanout access doors have been enlarged by 68% for easier access. The smaller, but equally efficient cyclone design provides easier access to the drive line components that require greasing. If equipped with the boom option, the hydraulic and electrical components previously mounted on the boom have been relocated to eye level for easier access. Removing the electrical components from the boom swing motion improves reliability.

improved safety

The emergency stop circuitry on the Guzzler CL cuts power to disable the vacuum and hydraulics, and throttles the chassis engine down to idle. For improved module grounding, the debris body, sub-frame and chassis are fully connected via a copper grounding strap, while an improved grounding cable clamp grounds the module components to their grounding location.
