Ditch Witch announces the release of the MV800, a low-cost, compact and durable vacuum excavator designed specifically for cleanup on horizontal directional drilling (HDD) jobsites.

 MV800Featuring heavy-duty, field-proven components the MV800 is powered by a commercial-grade, 31-hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard gas engine with an electric start and a high-capacity, remote air-intake filter that helps maximize performance. The MV800’s filtration system includes an integrated carryover chamber that eliminates contaminants before they reach the blower, increasing efficiency and reducing downtime.

With its optional reverse flow feature and optional hydraulic opening door, spoils removal is simple and efficient. The MV800 also offers an optional water system with a 100-gallon water tank and adjustable pressure up to 3,000-psi for soft excavation tasks such as potholing utilities.

The MV800 is designed for simple operation with standard curbside controls that enable one-person control of all functions and promote job site safety. Other standard safety features include a strobe light, belt guards and mechanical locks on all lift cylinders. The entire MV800 system fits on a customized, 14,000-lb GVWR trailer that is compliant with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and includes high-visibility marking and an impact guard.
