Key features

  • 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.
  • The VX30-250 features convenient curbside controls for domestic and international use.
  • 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.

  • Reduces the risk of material entering the blower - in turn, adding greater longevity to your system.
