Key Features


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.

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.


The VX70 and VX80 series features a built-in patented In-Tank clean out flushing system, and an easily accessible operator control panel, these vacuum excavators were designed for ease of use and serviceability. All of the daily service points are also readily accessible around the machine.



Optional reverse flow on the VX70 and VX80 series keeps your work moving forward with the ability to offload spoil faster and clear hose clogs quickly. Simply reverse the airflow by changing the valve position for positive tank pressure.
