Mounted on a Class 6, 7 or 8 truck, the FXT60 vacuum excavator handles heavy cleanup jobs around directional drilling sites as well as excavation such as potholing, according to Ditch Witch.

A 74-horsepower Deutz diesel power the excavator, which provides 1,027 cfm of suction power. A high-pressure water system has a 5.5-gpm, 3,000-psi water pump. An autoclutching feature disengages the pump when water is not in use, allowing full power for suction. A fully enclosed, insulated and lockable power pack keep noise to 82 dB(A).

The unit can be placed on a Class 6 or 7 single-axle or Class 8 tandem-axle truck and is mounted directly to the frame rails, which allows components to flex independently for structural integrity. Saddle-style tanks evenly distribute weight.

An optional hydraulic boom extends to 14 feet. Tank configurations include a 500-gallon spoils tank with 200-gallon water tank, or an 800-gallon spoils tank with two 200-gallon saddle-style water tanks.
