OZ Lifting Products davit crane wheelbase

The new wheelbase from OZ Lifting Products can be used with its full range of davit cranes up to 1,200-pound capacity. Made in the U.S., the wheelbase is adjustable and has four different length positions: 56.57 to 77.57 inches long, 32.44 inches wide and 36.87 inches high. It weighs 140 pounds when fully assembled (without a crane pedestal base), so the total weight will depend on the davit crane used. With durable steel construction and powder-coat finish, oversized casters make rolling the base and moving the crane easy. The floor anchoring system allows the davit to rotate 360 degrees, even when under load. 800-749-1064;

Vermeer VX75 trailer vacuum excavator

Vermeer has introduced the first model of its next generation of new trailer vacuum excavators, the Vermeer VX75. The 75 hp machine is equipped with a 1,500 cfm vacuum blower capable of generating 15-inch Hg of suction force. It is available with a 5-inch hydraulic boom option for standard units and a 4-inch hydraulic boom option for air and jetter versions. The control panel and full-function remote control allow operators to start and stop the machine and control everything from the boom to the water system and spoil tank. The remote control feature is especially useful for contractors using the excavator for slurry management, as they no longer have to manually restart the unit when draining a pit, potentially saving time and fuel. Powered by a 74.3 hp Kubota diesel engine, the VX75 can be equipped with either a 500-gallon spoil tank with two 125-gallon freshwater tanks or an 800-gallon spoil tank with two 205-gallon freshwater tanks. It also has an 8 gpm, 3,000 psi water system, a dual-cyclone filtration system and a full-open cam over the spoil tank door. 641-628-3141;
