Vactor Manufacturing, introduced the Vactor HXX ParaDIGm vacuum excavator for utility, municipal and contractor customers.
This compact, multi-use truck can dig holes with water or air; vacuum, contain and dispose of drill mud; power pneumatic, hydraulic or electrical tools; and provide transport and storage of replacement parts, equipment and tools.
The ParaDIGm trademarked “Park-n-Dig” design minimizes the time between arriving on the job site and excavation, including the ability to dig up to six feet in depth without additional pipe and hose.
With the ability to use air or hydro excavation as the digging method, the vacuum excavator can be used in a variety of applications. The air compressor, which is standard is able to power utility tools such as jackhammers and tampers that may be used on the job.
The machine features a six-inch hose and a powerful vacuum system capable of up to 2,200 CFM and 15" Hg of vacuum. The standard extendable boom with six-inch vacuum hose doubles the airflow, and reduces hose clogging.
Increased payload hauling capabilities
The ParaDIGm’s payload is nearly three times the payload with a maximum of more than 6,000 lbs. of spoils.
