Key Features

3-STAGE CYCLONIC FILTRATION

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.

PATENTED “CAM-OVER” HYDRAULIC REAR DOOR

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.

CAN CONTROLS: FULL-FUNCTION REMOTE CONTROL

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

ROOTS 624 BLOWER WITH 6″ BOOM

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

One of the lightest in the industry, the VXT8 AirWeigh Scale allows operators to maximize payload. With the optional AirWeight monitor, operators can see the weight of the truck and payload in real time.

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