    I would like to get into Hydrovac/Vacuum. Any ideas or suggestions on how to get started. I have about 6 years driving, with 3 years hauling fuel.

    Hope you got a 300K credit line or cash......

    Those vac trucks are brutally expensive.

    Pumping septic tanks is one way to start your own business...

    Boring work. My first job spinning wrenches was at a large vac truck outfit. Part of training was to spend a couple days as a swamper to learn how the trucks worked. After about 20 minutes I was ready to throw in the towel.
