Vacuum Excavators

Vacuum Trucks and Trailers

The demand for non-destructive digging (‘NDD’) solutions has seen a surge in demand for vacuum excavation across a wide range of industries and applications. This growth has been driven by factors including the increased mandating of NDD and hydro excavation by primary contractors and municipalities, occupational health and safety regulation, the roll-out of fibre networks and availability of vacuum excavators in an increasing array of sizes and configurations.  

Often, once a contractor or municipality buys their first vacuum truck or trailer, it’s use expands to applications beyond the original intended use, realising new revenue streams and/or efficiencies for the organisation.

Vermeer Vacuum Excavators save contractors time, labour, material handling costs, and most of all, reduces surface disruption in areas with improved landscapes and reduces the risks of damaging utilities during the excavation process.  Whether it’s potholing for a fibre installation or liquid vacuum recovery supporting a HDD rig, Vermeer has the hydro excavator you need. With units ranging between 400 and 11,000 litre spoil tank capacity and the CFM to match, we have your vac ex requirements covered.
