Key Features

POWERFUL, VERSATILE AND PORTABLE. THE VX30-250 vacuum excavator offers municipalities and contractors a low-cost, portable system for potholing and vacuum applications such as hydro excavation and liquid vacuum recovery.

CONVENIENT CURBSIDE CONTROLS. The VX30-250 features convenient curbside controls for domestic and international use.

IN-TANK WASHDOWN SYSTEM. Saves you cleanup time and makes it easier to remove difficult debris as it delivers a high-pressure water spray to the tank interior while simultaneously dumping material.

QUIETER OPERATION. Integrated silencing system for quieter operation by dampening sound before it’s released into the atmosphere using an external engine compartment baffle system.

DUAL TANK SHUT-OFF SYSTEM. Reduces the risk of material entering the blower – in turn, adding greater longevity to your system.
