350hp | 800 gal Water Tank Capacity
The VXT8 series of mega vacs is designed for contractors focused on fast and reliable vacuum excavation from jobsites to dumpsites. The VXT8 series is available in an 8-yd³ (6.1-m³) spoil tank capacity with 800-gal (3,028-L) water tank capacity. Meet project deadlines using the productive 6-in (15.2-cm) PTO-driven mega vac with 3,500-cfm (99.1-m³/min) “free air” and is capable of 18 in Hg (.6 bar).
455hp | 1500 gal Water Tank Capacity
The XR2 vacuum excavator is the industry’s first vacuum excavator equipped with a shaker deck that separates liquids and solids to allow contractors to stay on the jobsite longer, work efficiently and reduce disposal expenses. Material excavated with the XR2 is fed through an onboard deceleration tank that exits through an airlock onto a shaker deck where solids and liquids are then separated. The solid material is moved by conveyor toward the rear of the machine where it is discharged and can be carried away or left on the jobsite, depending on the material. Used, slurry water is pumped into the fluid storage tanks for disposal. The design of the XR2 can help expand the use of vacuum excavation for everything from utility potholing and stitch boring to slot trenching and general construction, equipping you to do more.
Features a full-function remote control, allowing one-person operation of the boom, vac, conveyer, separation and dig pump. Choose from durable full-function belly-pack or handheld remotes. Innovative control system allows for one-person operation.
Low overall height of 11.5 ft (3.51 m). Drive under a 12-ft (3.66-m) shop door or bridge with comfort. Plus, one of the lightest 8-yd³ (6.1-m³) trucks in the industry to maximize payload.
The airlock rotates continuously, discharging solids and liquids while maintaining vacuum within the system. Keep your work moving forward with the ability to offload spoil efficiently and clear hose clogs quickly. Reverse the airflow by changing the valve position for positive tank pressure.
430hp | 850 gal Water Tank Capacity
The truck’s engine, through an OMSI soft-start transmission, powers a 4,800-cfm (135.9-m3/min) blower and 27-in Hg (685.8-mm Hg) vacuum. The onboard water system has a flow of 11.5 gpm (43.5 L/min) and water pressure capacity of 3,000 psi (20,684 kPa). The 74,000-lb (34,000-kg) GVWR-rated axle configuration allows for maximum utilization of the 8-yd (7.3-m) spoil tank.
510hp | 1300 gal Water Tank Capacity
The VXT600-11 model features an upgraded capacity with 11 yd³ (10.1 m³) of debris capacity and 1,300 gal (4,921 L) of water in the central tank. The VXT600-16 model features 16 yd³ (14.6 m³) of debris capacity and 2,400 gal (9,085 L) of water. The unit features a built-in 10-degree floor slope along with a three-stage lift cylinder and a full-radius, half-moon rear door for quick and efficient unloads. These combined features make the VXT600 one of the quickest tanks on the market to empty. This unit also features the powerful Jurop Helix 6,400-cfm (181.2-m³/min) PD blower driven by the OMSI transfer case with blower clutch pack soft-start engagement.
510hp | 800 gal Water Tank Capacity
Designed for efficiency, this unit utilizes its boom as a vacuum source that can fill or unload containers while the hoist can be used to unload and pick up containers repeatedly — all while remaining at the jobsite. The boom has the capability to reach multiple vacuum containers, strategically parked near the chassis, allowing it to fill 80 yd³ \- 115 yd³ (73.2 m³ \- 105.16 m³) of debris before maneuvering the vacuum containers. The VXT600D is specifically designed for service companies that deal with vacuum boxes and run hundreds of feet of hoses to get to the work area.
508hp | 135ft Reach
This truck-mounted machine provides a remote non-entry solution for areas like lagoons, pits, lift stations, aeration basins, lakes and rivers. Designed for service companies to provide accessibility to sites, the VBT600 can stay on the jobsite digging and pumping while vacs continue the loading and unloading cycle. This can optimize fleet operations. The VBT600 can also be coupled to additional treatment systems like centrifuges, press belts and dewatering screens.
The PD blower is driven by the OMSI transfer case with blower soft-start engagement and operates with a suction power of 4,800-6,400 cfm (135.9 m³/min) and is capable of up to 27 in Hg (685.8 mm Hg).
The water system is a water pump that goes up to between 11.5-19.4 gpm @ 3,000 psi (43.5 L/min @ 20,684 kPa).
Industry-leading IFM industrial controller that monitors the system’s temperature, pressure and vacuum sensors. It also allows the operator to see the engine instruments, chassis instruments and the vac instruments on the belly pack.
