Company: Ditch Witch
PERRY, Okla. ” The Ditch Witch organization offers the quietest, most productive, most versatile family of vacuum systems on the market. The Ditch Witch FX60 vacuum excavator, a higher-horsepower version of the company™s popular FX30, is designed for an extensive range of cleanup and soft excavation applications for many different industries, including drilling, utility, landscaping, construction, water and sewer, railroad, telecommunications, disaster recovery, and plumbing. (A list of applications within their respective industries is available on the company™s Web site, ditchwitch.com.)
The features and capabilities of the FX60 reflect a growing trend of vacuum excavation systems being used to perform more excavation tasks than cleanup. The earlier, gas-powered systems were primarily used to clean out trenches and remove debris from construction sites. The new breed of diesel-powered vacuum excavators, exemplified by the FX60, is increasingly called upon to excavate in congested areas, expose and locate lines, clean utility boxes, perform a variety of street repairs, and dozens of other aboveground tasks.
The Ditch Witch FX60 is a high-end, belt-driven vacuum excavation system with a 5.2 gpm water pump and 900 cfm of suction power. It can be configured with a 300-, 800-, or 1200-gallon debris tank. It is powered by a 60-hp Cummins 3.3-L engine and is available in either trailer-mounted or loose-configuration versions.
With a super-quiet noise output of 82dbA, which meets noise-pollution requirements for most targeted industries, the FX60 enables operators to work longer in highly populated areas with fewer complaints. Less noise and vibration also results in decreased operator fatigue.
The FX60™s convenient hose reel, available on the 1200-gallon tank, saves time and labor during setup and cleanup, and the user-friendly operator control panel requires minimal training. The FX60 also features an electric clutch on the water pump and hydraulic power source for operating hydraulic hand tools.
The Ditch Witch organization specializes in the design and manufacture of high-quality underground construction equipment. The company is a one-stop source for trenchers, vibratory plows, pneumatic piercing tools, backhoes, electronic tracking and locating tools, horizontal directional drilling systems, drill pipe, downhole tools, vacuum excavation systems, excavator-tool carriers, mini skid steers and pipebursting systems.
