About this product
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.
CONVENIENT & EASY TO USE
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.
FAST & EFFICIENT -OPTIONAL
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.
Hydraulic BoomThe industry-leading Hydraulic Boom offers speed, reliability and ease of operation.
Hot BoxThe Hot Box option allows you to work with water heated up to 165 degrees F to improve digging in conditions such as frost.
Sewer JetterThe J12-30 Sewer Jetting system turns your vacuum system into a versatile jetter/vac combination unit.
