W W W.T R E N C H L E S S T EC H N O LO GY.C O M 51 The Vactor HXX QX—the successor to the legendary Vactor HXX vacuum excavator—showcases the latest design thinking from Vactor Manufacturing in terms of improvements in payload capacity, weight distribution, operation and performance. Vactor worked directly with customers to address their challenges and has taken significant steps to develop a vacuum excavation truck that not only meets regulations where operators face weight-limit challenges, but also maximizes the truck's legal payload. Improved weight distribution The placement of the debris body and water tank on the chassis ensures equal distribution of the payload on the axles, regardless of how much water is in the tanks. Each component of the Vactor HXX QX is purposely placed to ensure the entire chassis gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) is used. Single-piston water system A new PrecisionFlow™ water pump system features a single-piston design which is capable of higher flow and pressures than a triplex water pump system for superior production and reliability. QuietPak system The HXX QX is also equipped with a QuietPak sound-damping system featuring a Robuschi positive displacement blower rated for 6,176 CFM and 28-in. Hg. The system delivers higher airflow and quieter operation, with a decibel rating of less than 90 dB(A) throughout the RPM range. Ultra-quiet inlet and outlet silencers acoustically matched to the blower make this truck ideal for work at higher altitudes. Improved operator interaction Additional features of the HXX QX include Vactor's Park-N-Dig™ quick operation design, which reduces set-up and tear-down time between jobs, and a seven-inch display featuring real-time operational and performance information feedback to allow the operator to maximize productivity. Product specifications • Vacuum system rated at 6,200 CFM and 28-inch Hg • Water pump system rated at 30 GPM and 3,000 psig • Water tank capacity: 1,200 gallons • Debris tank capacity: 16 cubic yards • Boom reach: 27.5-foot overall reach, 320 degrees of rotation About Vactor Manufacturing Vactor Manufacturing offers the widest range of vacuum excavators for the utility industry, ranging from single to four-rear axle vacuum trucks, 3.5 cu. yard to 15 cu. yard debris capacity, and air, water or both for digging.
