The MEGA VX200 6-inch vacuum excavator series features spoil tank capacities ranging from 1,200 to 3,000 gallons and a standard option of 800 gallons of fresh water. It has a 6-inch hose diameter with a 3,200 CFM blower at 18 inches of mercury.
The tank, power pack and water system all have a modular design versatility that allows a contractor to mount the unit on either a new or a repurposed truck chassis. The MEGA VX200 6-inch series was designed after listening to customers who said they wanted a vacuum excavator for their potholing jobs and fluid management needs that fills a gap between smaller trailer-mounted vacuum excavators and the largest truck-mounted units.
The MEGA VX200 6-inch series is powered by a 200-horsepower (149 kW) John Deere Tier 3 engine.
The MEGA VX200 features the McLaughlin industry-exclusive 3-stage cyclonic filtration system that allows for both wet and dry vacuum excavation while prolonging filter life and helping to keep maintenance costs low.
Additionally, the McLaughlin patented cam-over hydraulic rear door provides a 360-degree positive seal, without additional clamping requirements to keep fluids securely in the debris tank. No components are inside the tank, so maintenance is external.
