Ditch Witch FXT30 Truck Vacuum Excavator

Easy access to power pack for convenient servicing.

Optional heater keeps water system from freezing in inclement weather and increases production in tight soils.

Rugged design

Designed specifically for mounting on truck frame rails, allowing system components to flex independently of truck, for maximum structural integrity.

Designed for minimal overall package height, resulting in a lower center of gravity and better handling during transport.

Saddle-style tanks provide optimal weight distribution to keep payload over rear axle.

Reusable, 0.5-micron washable vacuum filter and a blower relief valve air filter provide the industry's best filtration; optional cyclonic filter cleans the air before it reaches the filter, minimizing maintenance.
