About this product
The Vermeer VX50 series is a powerful and productive vacuum excavator, equipped with a 4″ suction hose and 1,025 cfm blower it is extremely useful for production pothole applications and drill fluid management. This third generation Vermeer vacuum excavator by McLaughlin features a 49-horsepower (36.5 kW) Tier 4 Final Kubota diesel engine and has a modular design allowing it to be trailer- or truck-mounted simply and quickly.
PATENTED HIGH LIFT “CAM-OVER” EXTERNAL HYDRAULIC DOOR
The McLaughlin patented “Cam-Over” hydraulic rear door leads the industry with this simple reliable design with all components being external to the tank. The design provides a consistent 360° seal and mechanical locking mechanism, to keep fluids securely in the debris tank even under reverse pressure.
THREE-STAGE CYCLONIC FILTRATION
Standard three-stage cyclonic filtration system, which allows the vacuum to be used for both wet and dry vacuum excavating where the cyclones reduce airborne particulates from reaching the final filter and vacuum blower. This system prolongs the filter life, reducing maintenance costs.
PATENTED IN TANK WASHDOWN
Delivers a high-pressure water spray to the tank interior helping simultaneously dump material and clean the inside of the tank, Saves clean up time and makes it easier to remove dificult debris.
REVERSE FLOW – STANDARD
The Reverse Flow option allows for offloading liquids quickly and easily without opening the rear tank door.
NO HASSLE HOSE
Designed to be operator friendly and increase productivity, the suction hose is located conveniently along the side of the machine and can easily be taken on or off.
Centrally located near the operator controls are the remote fluid drains and grease points.
HIGH CLEARANCE TRAILER
Featuring a high clearance trailer with dexter torsion axles allows for a durable, off-road ready machine.
AUTO BELT TENSIONERS
Fully enclosed and protected the automatic belt tensioners keeps proper tension at all times and extends belt life.
The STRONG ARM is a tank-mounted attachment that carries the weight of the vacuum hose and debris being vacuumed. It helps to reduce operator fatigue and increases job productivity.
Hot Box Water Heater
The Hot Box option allows you to work with water heated up to 165 degrees F to improve digging in hard conditions.
Exclusive telescoping boom maintains hose lenght during extension and incorporates a remote controlled hydraulic valve for vacuum shut off. Available with manual or hydraulic rotation.
