McLaughlin Mega VX200 Vacuum Excavator

Mega VX200 truck-mounted vacuum excavator has 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, allowing contractors to mount the unit on either a new or a repurposed truck chassis, says the company.

The Mega VX200 is powered by a 200-horsepower John Deere Tier 3 engine and features the McLaughlin three-stage cyclonic filtration system that allows both wet and dry vacuum excavation and, says the company, prolongs filter life and helps keep maintenance costs low. The machine also uses the patented McLaughlin cam-over-hydraulic rear door that is designed to provide a positive 360-degree seal without additional clamping requirements, keeping fluids securely in the debris tank.
