About this product

The MEGA VX200 is a truck mounted vacuum excavator that features a 200-horsepower (149 kW) John Deere Tier 3 engine, a 3-stage cyclonic filtration system and spoil tank capacities ranging from 1,200 to 3,000 gallons (4,542.5 to 11,356.2 L) with the standard option of 800 gallons (3,028.3 L) of fresh water. It has a 6-inch (15.2 cm) hose diameter and a 3,500 “free air” cfm (99.1 m3/min) blower capable of 18 inches of mercury. The tank, power pack and water system all have a modular design — versatility that allows a contractor to mount the unit on either a new or a re-purposed truck chassis.

The MEGA VX200 6-inch series was designed after listening to customers who said they wanted a vacuum excavator for their potholing jobs and fluid management needs that fills a gap between smaller trailer-mounted vacuum excavators and the largest truck-mounted units.

Key Features


McLaughlin uses TRUE three-stage filtration system that allows for both wet and dry vacuum excavation. The dual 17″ x 55″ cyclones are custom designed for the VX200 with high efficiency dual vertical stems. After material passes through the tank, the air moves to the Cylonic Filtration System where dust-size particles are cyclonically removed. Then the pre-filtered clean air stream passes through a removable, washable micron-poly filter before reaching the blower.


Provides a 360-degree positive seal, even under reverse pressure without additional clamping requirements. The highly reliable
Cam-Over design has no in-tank moving parts, so all maintenance is external.


The Magnetek Telemotive Mini-MBT radio remote controls all machine functions and delivers vital machine information through its display. The remote easily straps to operator, and features an emergency stop for safety.

VX200 Large Hose Diameter


Featuring a 6-inch (15.2 cm) hose diameter with a 3,500 “free air” cfm (99.1 m3/min) blower and 18 inches of hg (.6 bar) to get more work done and take on bigger jobs.


This safety feature allows the blower to suck “free air” vs. having the hose live at all times.  It also allows the engine and blower to “unload” or free run when not in use – proloning blower and engine life.
