Ditch Witch says its FX20 is the company’s most portable and affordable vacuum excavation system to date. A 27-horsepower Kohler gas engine powers the FX20, developing vacuum power of 540 cubic feet per minute – equal to Ditch Witch’s larger FX30 vacuum. With a 150-gallon spoil tank, the system is suited for cleaning out municipal valve boxes, commercial and residential debris cleanup and landscaping, exposing utility lines, posthole digging, and other relatively small, short-run projects. The FX20 can be transported in the back of a pickup truck, on a flatbed, or a small trailer, with no CDL required.
