FXT65 vacuum excavator“As the most productive Ditch Witch models, these machines are the new workhorses of vacuum excavators. The power to tackle tasks, such as potholing and site cleanup, is combined with one of the lowest investments on the market,” said Jason Proctor, product manager, vacuum excavation systems for the Ditch Witch organization. “Compared to previous models, the FX65 and FXT65 vacuum excavators have 20 percent more airflow, equating to higher productivity and greater efficiency for our customers.”

Turbocharged with a 74-hp Deutz Tier 4 diesel engine and 1,215 cfm, these units are designed to optimize airflow for the highest performance output. The vacuum excavators can handle sizeable cleanup jobs, larger excavations and potholing. In addition, an auxiliary hydraulic power system enables a variety of tools from impact wrenches to jackhammers.

The FX65 model is available as a trailer-mounted unit. The FXT65 is integrated into a truck chassis.  These versatile systems are equipped with excellent water excavation capabilities, and a high-powered air excavation system is also offered on the FXT65 Air model.

Tank options for the trailer-mounted FX65 include 500-, 800- or 1,200-gallon vacuum tanks and 200-, 300- or 500-gallon water tanks. Tank options for the FXT65 truck vacuum include 500- or 800-gallon vacuum tanks and 200- or 400-gallon water tanks. The truck-mounted FXT65 provides power in a compact package, increasing mobility and maneuverability.
