Our  VacTrax machine

Through many years of practical experience, CGB management identified the increasing need for effective commercial vacuuming solutions in the coal, oil and gas industries and in agriculture.

It was evident that machinery would have to be highly versatile – efficient at vacuuming large and small coal particles, ores and liquids as well as removing slurries and a wide range of agricultural by-products.

Over a number of years, advanced solutions were conceived, developed and trialed, resulting in new levels of vacuuming efficiency.



VacTrax had arrived!

VacTrax demonstrated unparalleled vacuuming performance at exhibitions and field days. Award-winning VacTrax technology also featured on ABC’s New Inventors programme.

VacTrax can operate effectively in difficult terrain under all weather conditions without damaging infrastructure or fragile ground surfaces. What’s more, the equipment is tough and reliable – and is as ideal for routine usage as it is for emergency situations, such as oil spills requiring beach clean-ups.

Queensland Premier Anna Bligh declared Moreton Island, Bribie Island and southern parts of the Sunshine Coast disaster zones after a massive oil spill in March 2009. Sixty kilometers of coastline were covered in the slick. CGB assisted in the clean-up of both islands as VacTrax was particularly effective in removing oil sludge and suitable for accessing remote areas with minimal impact to plants or the environment.


VacTrax was initially designed for use in NSW coalfields. Its success at being able to collect and remove spillage and place coals directly back on the conveyor belt was revolutionary – especially in inaccessible locations.

Through this experience, it quickly became apparent that VacTrax demonstrated enormous potential for usage in a number of other industries and applications.

The VacTrax suction hose is readily extended to reach difficult access sites  – or enclosed, confined and restricted areas that often prohibit the use of less versatile equipment.

Another VacTrax advantage is that it can be used where the ground is unstable or unable to support additional weight. In areas where the movement of heavy equipment can damage vegetation, pipes, culverts and roading – VacTrax is the perfect solution. The VacTrax vacuum hose can be extended 50 metres horizontally and 30 metres vertically without compromising suction power.

VacTrax equipment can easily be customised to suit your requirements.

What’s more, all operatives are inducted to relevant industry standards via accredited training processes – promoting safe working practices, versatility and maximum onsite effectiveness.
