Ring-O-Matic was founded in 1960 in Iowa as a general machining and manufacturing company.

Ring-O-Matic introduced its largest product line- industrial Vacuum Excavation machines and Vac Only machines to market in 1996. These machines are widely used by contractors for general construction site clean-up and for potholing (hydro excavation digging) to locate underground utilities.

Precision utility location is an important part of the horizontal directional drilling process. Ring-O-Matic’s patented Cyclo-Jet Potholing Excavator is the fastest and cleanest method to locate underground utilities. Ring-O-Matic offers a wide variety of vacuum excavation equipment with collection tank sizes ranging from 150 to 3000 gallons, and fitted with CAT diesel engine options delivering up to 83 horsepower. Ring-O-Matic’s product line has a strong reputation for reliability and ease-of-use.

The Ring-O-Matic product range reflect the creativity of its founder Bill Van Zante. Bill was always looking for better ways to get the job done. His mechanical genius led Ring-O-Matic to many industry firsts, including: low-profile, load balanced, trailer mounted vacuum excavation machines, pressurized collection tank off-loading, a pneumatic load-breaker to break up sediment in the collection tank, and the patented Cyclo Jet Pothole Excavator tool.

Ring-O-Matic is committed to make the best vacuum excavation equipment and pit-cleaners in the world and do it in a way that provides honest value along with superb service to our customers while continuing to earn our reputation as the industry’s leading innovator.
