Vactor Hydro Excavators

Safety is the number one reason why professional excavation is vital for even the simplest repair and maintenance jobs, and hydro excavators utilize water pressure to do the digging for you. The HXX Series of Vactor Hydro Excavators, are proven leaders in hydro excavation, with a full line of powerful machines that safely tackle major excavations while also managing smaller jobs with precision. Vactor offers the widest range of vacuum excavators for the utility industry ranging from single to four-rear axle vacuum trucks, 3.5 cu. yard to 15 cu. yard debris capacity, and air, water or both for digging.

For over 50 years, Vactor Manufacturing has been building durable, reliable products using air conveyance, high pressure water and vacuum technology. Nearly 17,000 units have been sold worldwide, far more than any other sewer cleaner or hydro-excavator manufacturer.

The Vactor HXX is the preferred excavator among contractors. The heavy-duty vacuum capabilities allow dirt and debris to be moved considerably. With the HXX you have the option of selecting between a fan or a positive displacement (PD) blower to get your job done. The Full Size HXX comes in either a tri-driver or pusher axle, while the mid-sized comes in a standard tandem axle configuration.

Safety is the key reason why vacuum excavation is important on even ordinary repair and maintenance jobs. Many states require a visual verification around utilities before repair or construction work can begin – preventing accidents that can cost millions in damage and risk of injury or death to workers and the public. The added bonus is the small repair holes, possible only by using vacuum excavation, which reduces environmental and surface replacement costs and is less disruptive to traffic and commerce.

By using a vacuum excavator 99.8% of known reported strikes could have been avoided.
