Contractors - Vacuum Excavating

Hydroexcavation is a relatively safe, productive and damage-free excavation method. Pressurized water (or optional pressurized air) breaks apart soil, while a high-flow vacuum removes it without damaging or disrupting lines. Unlike mechanical excavation, there is little chance of damage when water is used to loosen the soil. Hydroexcavating significantly reduces the safety and financial risks associated with utility line strikes.

Vactor Manufacturing, the leading vacuum truck manufacturer in the world, has worked closely with excavation contractors to develop the Vactor HXX HydroExcavator. Commonly used for slot-trenching, waterline repair, directional drilling support, sign and pole installation, pot-holing, and underground utility and pipe location, the Vactor HXX hydroexcavation truck delivers up to seven hours of continuous operation with the onboard water. Lower water flow results in less operator fatigue and a cleaner, more precise digging process.

In the oil field support work, the Vactor HXX excels at removal of drilling mud with the powerful vacuum system and large debris body as well as frac tank cleaning with the optional large 25 GPM water pump system.

The 12 cubic yard debris body is fabricated from corrosion and abrasion resistant steel. A 1200 gallon high density polyethylene water tank (or optional stainless tank) provides enough water for several hours of digging work. The standard multi-flow pump allows water pressure adjustments with the push of a button for digging in various conditions. A user-friendly, ergonomically designed control box is located curbside for easy access and efficient operation.

The Vactor HXX Hydroexcavator includes “Smart Truck” features as standard which provides operator and machine safety by continually monitoring the system to ensure it is functioning properly. The “Smart Truck” technology also provides enhanced service and maintenance abilities with the onboard diagnostic/troubleshooting system.

The Vactor HXX Hydroexcavation truck is rugged, dependable and durable while being easy to operate and easy to maintain.
