McLaughlin EC075 and VX75 vacuum excavators
EC075 and VX75 mid-range vacuum excavators from McLaughlin answer the demand from the underground utility market for a compact vacuum excavation system with a 5-inch boom option that focuses on performance and fuel efficiency. A 74 hp Deutz Final Tier 4 diesel engine powers a 1,200 cfm vacuum blower and the 8 gpm water pump is capable of 3,000 psi operating pressure. The larger boom pulls more material and reduces clogging to enhance job site production. The ECO75-500 can be mounted on a single-axle 26,000 GVW truck without the need for a commercial driver’s license. The trailer-mounted VX75 features a twin-axle, heavy-duty I-beam construction that is compact and can be pulled by a 1-ton truck. 800/435-9340; www.mclaughlinunderground.com.

The placement of the debris body and water tank on the chassis ensures equal distribution of the payload on the axles, regardless of how much water is in the tanks. A new PrecisionFlow water pump system features a single-piston design that is capable of higher flow and pressures than a triplex water pump system for production and reliability. The vacuum system is rated at 6,200 cfm and 28 inches Hg, and the water pump system is rated at 30 gpm and 3,000 psig.
