The aluminum construction on the H1 allows for a smaller chassis, less wear and tear on the vehicle and lower fuel costs. As seen in the picture below, the H1 Duct Truck box is under construction in the welding shop. Once complete, it will be powder coated and the HAVAC gas powered vacuum system will be installed:
Some of the custom work done on this version of the H1 Duct Truck include the underbody storage boxes, as seen in the lower portion of this photo:
The opening on the right side of this photo will be used for a slide out storage bay, while the left side opening will be the main area of operation for starting your compressor and HAVAC gas powered vacuum:

The image below image shows the custom option of underbody storage boxes. New H1 trucks or H2 models do not offer this feature:

As seen in this image, the H1 Truck came with 2 Easy Clean Out Bins. As newer models were created, Hypervac phased out the dual bin design in favor of more space, less weight and simplicity:
The H1 Duct Cleaning Truck has completely redesigned the Duct Cleaning truck from the ground up. Fuel savings, repair costs, weight, dirt bin and extra storage space were all improved in the original H1 Duct Truck design.
