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.


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.


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.

In Tank Wash-down


Filtration system that allows for both wet and dry excavation, while prolonging filter life and reducing maintenance costs.
