The VX75 vacuum excavator’s control panel and full-function remote control allow operators to start and stop the machine and control everything from the boom to the water system and spoil tank. This remote control feature is especially useful for contractors using the excavator for slurry management, as they no longer have to manually restart the unit when draining a pit.

The unit can be configured with a 180-cfm, 110-psi air compressor for dry digging and powering pneumatic tools, an 18-gpm at 2,000-psi jetter for cleaning pipes and culverts up to 12 inches in diameter, and an 8-gpm  auxiliary hydraulic system for powering tools such as core saws.
