HYDRO AND VACUUM EXCAVATION
Vactor offers a line of Hydro Excavators for a wide array of applications. Hydro Excavation is a non-mechanical, non-desctuctive process that uses pressurized water and industrial strength vacuum to simultaneously excavate and evacuate soil. The hydro excavation process results in safe, fast, precise excavations that require less backfill, labor, restoration, and has less environmental impact than traditional excavation techniques.
The MacQueen Equipment Group offers a variety of Vactor Hydro Excavators for sale, as well as rental options through MacQueen Group Rentals.

Hydro excavation is a non-mechanical, non-destructive process that uses pressurized water and industrial strength vacuum to simultaneously excavate and evacuate soil. As hydro excavation safely breaks up soil, the soil and water slurry is conveyed by vacuum to a debris tank.
Instead of manual or mechanical digging methods, hydro excavation uses water to break up soil, which virtually eliminates any risk of underground utility damage. The hydro excavation process results in safe, fast, precise excavations that require less backfill, labor, restoration, and has less environmental impact than traditional excavation techniques.

Vactor HXX Paradigm® Vacuum Excavator
Introducing the NEW Vactor HXX ParaDIGm(R), the most innovative, versatile compact vacuum excavator available. This customer-inspired vacuum excavator was based on input from over 100 utility company and contractor job site visits as well as the experience and technology of the market leading Vactor HXX line of vacuum excavators.
No CDL Required!
The Paradigm® vacuum excavator was designed for utility, municipal and contractor customers involved in the installation, maintenance and repair of underground water, sewer, gas, electric and telecommunications utilities. In addition, the Paradigm is ideally suited for subsurface utility engineering (SUE) contractors and other design planning firms involved in civil, road, municipal, commercial, industrial and residential projects.
This compact, multi-use truck can dig holes with water or air; vacuum, contain and dispose of drill mud; power pneumatic, hydraulic or electrical tools; and provide transport and storage of replacement parts, equipment and tools.
Vactor HXX Full Size Hydro Excavator
The Vactor positive displacement (PD) vacuum excavator is the preferred vacuum excavator among contractors with its high vacuum capabilities. The high vacuum capabilities of the Vactor PD allow material to be moved from great depths and distances not achievable with centrifugal compressors.
Many utilities, contractors, and municipalities prefer a “mid-sized” unit that provides outstanding performance yet is lighter weight to allow more payload capacity. The Vactor HXX MS (Mid-Size) and FN (Fan) provide extreme performance while on a lighter weight design to allow more payload capacity.
