AFAIK there is no way to truncate the table with the built-in IRepository (just fetch all the records and then delete one-by-one). You can use HQL somewhow, that could be an option, or even raw SQL if it's not an issue for you that the module would be tied to a database vendor.

Sorry I haven't used either in Orchard, just have read they can be used through Orchard APIs. For HQL examples, search the solution for "hql" or "hqlquery".

I solved this problem:

using (var session =_sessionLocator.For(typeof(SomeTableRecord))) { 
	var query = session.CreateSQLQuery(@"truncate table dbo.SomeTableRecord");
