Key features

  • The VX200 truck-mounted vacuum excavator range has spoil tank capacities ranging from 1,200 to 3,000 gallons, and a standard option of 800 gallons of fresh water.
  • It has a 6-inch hose diameter with a 3,200-cfm blower at 18 inches of mercury.
  • The tank, power pack, and water system all have a modular design, allowing contractors to mount the unit on either a new or a repurposed truck chassis.
  • The Mega VX200 is powered by a 200-horsepower John Deere Tier 3 engine and features the McLaughlin three-stage cyclonic filtration system that allows both wet and dry vacuum excavation and, says the company, prolongs filter life and helps keep maintenance costs low.
  • The machine also uses the patented McLaughlin cam-over-hydraulic rear door that is designed to provide a positive 360-degree seal without additional clamping requirements, keeping fluids securely in the debris tank.
