VermeerMcLaughlin engineers and manufactures for Vermeer the industry’s first trailer-mounted combination air-and-water vacuum excavator, the V300AWSD, providing contractors with one machine that can pothole utilities with either air or water. A power pack added to the 500-, 800-, and 1,200-gallon units make the air/water combination possible. An 85 horsepower turbocharged Kubota diesel engine powers the 150-cubic-feet-per-minute rotary compressor and a 3,000-psi water system. Water pressure is reduced to 1,500 psi using either a four-jet reduction tool or a “wobble” nozzle digging tool. McLaughlin also uses a three-stage filtration system with washable micro-poly filter instead of a bag house. Contractors can order the power pack with a combination of hydraulic booms, sewer jetters and other options through Vermeer’s dealer network.
