Vacmasters SYSTEM 5000 Air-Vacuum Excavation System has the ability to trench and pothole. The SYSTEM 5000 uses supersonic air from a proprietary nozzle to rapidly dig in every imaginable soil type faster and more efficiently than any other vacuum excavator on the market. All the components, including the 300 CFM/220 psi compressor, the 1,400 CFM Positive Displacement Blower, and the high pressure water system, are all powered by a single, enclosed John Deere 173-hp turbo diesel engine for quiet, dependable operation. Features include a self-purging filtration system, selectable air or water digging, remote operation up to 200 feet away, fast-acting interceptor canister, fully supervised control panel, full opening rear door, enclosed power-head and low-maintenance design. The SYSTEM 5000’s ability to use air rather than water when trenching and potholing means the job gets done faster (just 4-5 minutes in most soils), more efficiently (spoils stay dry for backfilling), more economically (mud hauling and disposal costs are eliminated) and much more safely (air won’t damage utilities and is non-conductive). Also, air-vacuum excavation is DOT friendly and won’t damage the road base.
