Key Features


Designed specifically for 3,500 “free air” cfm (99.1 m3/min) blower systems, this unique filtration system allows for wet or dry vacuum excavation, while prolonging filter life and keeping maintenance costs low.


Provides a 360-degree positive seal, without additional clamping requirements. The highly reliable cam-over design has no in-tank moving parts, so all maintenance is external.


The Magnetek  Mini-MBT radio remote controls all machine functions and delivers vital machine information through its display. The remote easily straps to the operator, and features an emergency stop.  Includes Vacuum Neutral Mode where air is able to run and circulate through the blower without suction or vacuum in the tank, allowing engine and blower to “unload” or free run when not in use to prolong the blower and engine life.

VX200 Large Hose Diameter


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


Provides a second level of security, and clear visibility into what each load is weighing.  “Hit the sweet spot”. Most possible money, least possible risk!. Air Weigh Scale tied into control system – and programmed to provide operator feedback when load limits are reached.

*Scales are subject to calibration and verification by the equipment owner.


Exclusive 19 foot telescoping boom maintains hose length during extension, provides 270 degrees of rotation and incorporates a remote controlled hydraulic valve for vacuum shut off.


OMSI air-shift transfer case is a proven design used throughout the industry to provide the power of the engine to all vacuum components for maximum efficiency and power.
