Vactor vacuum excavators
Vactor produces the full-sized Vactor HXX Hydro-Excavator® and the compact Vactor HXX Prodigy® vacuum excavator. The Vactor HXX Hydro-Excavator provides up to seven hours of continuous operation with the on-board water.
Enhanced for easier and more efficient operation, the Vactor HXX Prodigy provides quality, productivity and performance at a lower price. The mid-sized Prodigy uses hydroexcavation, blasting away soil with jets of up to 10 gallons of water per minute, at rates from 1,500 to 2,500 psi.
Vactor HXX ParaDIGm designed for utility market
Vactor recently introduced the Vactor HXX ParaDIGm® vacuum excavator for utility, municipal and contractor customers involved in the installation, maintenance and repair of underground water, sewer, gas, electric and telecommunications lines. This compact, multi-use truck can dig holes with water or air; vacuum, contain and dispose of drill mud; power pneumatic, hydraulic or electrical tools; and provide transport and storage of replacement parts, equipment and tools.
Utility professionals have to be prepared for anything, which is why they bring additional replacement parts, repair tools and equipment with them. With the ParaDIGm, these professionals have a powerful vacuum excavator that can also store, haul and power all the tools and equipment they may need on the job. The air compressor, which is standard on the ParaDIGm, is able to power utility tools such as jackhammers and tampers that may be used on the job. The truck features substantial storage space for these tools, including a long-handle tool box. The truck can also tow up to 20,000 lbs.
The ParaDIGm decreases the time associated with setup and tear down between excavated holes, significantly increasing productivity. The trademarked “Park-n-Dig”™ design minimizes the time between arriving on the job site and excavation, including the ability to dig up to six feet in depth without additional pipe and hose.

Increased payload hauling capabilities
Weight enforcement is an important issue within the vacuum excavation industry, as overweight fines can be significant. With a maximum payload of more than 6,000 lbs of spoils, no other vacuum excavator in this size range can match the ParaDIGm’s payload hauling capability.
Single engine design
The ParaDIGm features a powerful, single-engine, PTO-driven design that drives all vacuum, air and water systems. Unlike other vacuum excavators this size that require two engines – one to power the truck chassis and one to generate vacuum and excavating power – the ParaDIGm delivers superior performance with a single engine.
