X-Vac Hydro Excavators Proudly Manufactured in the USA

  • X-12 Hydro Excavator Trucks use state-of-the-art water pump and vacuum technology to safely locate and expose any type or size of underground utilities. Soil, sand and rock are quickly, safely and neatly excavated. Risk of underground utility strikes is virtually eliminated. The re-circulation system of X-Vac hydro trucks keeps heated water moving continuously to prevent freezing in cold temperatures. X-Vac’s Hydro Excavator Trucks are precision-engineered so that air and water volumes can be independently controlled to provide the ideal mix for any application.
  • The X-15 features a state-of-the-art Triplex water pump and vacuum system for potholing, daylighting, utility location, and other applications. The X-15 offers all the same benefits as the X-12 but with a larger 15-cubic yard debris tank and 1,425-gallon water capacity for the ultimate hydro excavation performance.
  • The tandem-axle X-8 Hydro Excavator offers the highest legal payload on the market with a surprisingly compact footprint. Smaller than traditional hydro excavators, the X-8 still has the power to complete projects with impressive efficiency and effectiveness.
  • The X-13 hydro excavator is ideal when transporting material or dumping on-site. A 13-cubic yard debris capacity and a payload capacity of up to 24,500 pounds, the highest legally available, maximize jobsite efficiency.
