EC075 and VX75 midrange 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 high 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 and heavy-duty I-beam construction that is compact and can be pulled by a 1-ton truck. 800-435-9340;
