HXX Prodigy Air – Mid-Size Vacuum Excavator

Vactor HXX Prodigy Air Vacuum Excavator

The Vactor HXX Prodigy Air vacuum excavator is based on the popular Vactor HXX HydroExcavator series and years of vacuum excavation research, customer input, testing and experience. The HXX Prodigy Air midsize vacuum excavator is the perfect non-destructive machine for a wide range of utility and municipal applications including potholing, key hole repairs, utility and line location, precise excavation and general maintenance. Utility companies, utility service contractors and municipalities will appreciate its ease of operation, lighter operating weight and maneuverability in tight spaces. Excavating using air as the digging medium is often the preferred, even required method for utility work such as line locating and repair, and enables dry back-fill for the excavation.

Precise Excavation Using Air

  • - Air system for dry digging and operation of air tools.
  • - 350 CFM / 150 PSI Air Compressor - Boss

Innovative Design

  • - Mounted on a 33,000 lb. gross vehicle weight Class 7 truck chassis (non-FET).
  • - User-friendly control system and a standard extendable boom with 320° rotation that provides full coverage of the working area and eliminates the need to "man-handle" the hose.
  • - An optional telescopic boom is also available

Dedicated Backfill Hopper

  • - Back-fill material is easily loaded and transported to the job site in dedicated 30 cu ft. hopper.
  • - Hopper is constructed of corrosion and abrasion resistant steel.
  • - Back-fill material is loaded into the hopper via a 4 in. vacuum suction hose.
  • - Allows transportation of gravel or other fill to the job site while leaving the debris body empty for excavated soil.
  • - Back-filled material is funneled to a 12 in. knife gate valve that allows easy metering of material into the excavation.
  • - The folded dump chute can extend to provide additional back-fill reach.

Ample Debris Capacity & Washdown Water

  • – 6 yd3 (4.6 m3) of debris
  • – 100 gallon (2271 L) Water Tank and Pump for easy cleanup of equipment or jobsite. Note: the water system can also be used to loosen harder soils.

Superior Vacuum Performance

  • – A powerful 16 in. Hg, 3,2000 CFM PD blower with a custom-designed and optimized filtration system that can handle digging with air without a bag house.
  • – The 3,200 CFM blower and 6 in. hose provide the operators with increased performance when compared to smaller trailer units.
  • – The standard 6 in. hose system reduces clogging seen in 3 in. or 4 in. vacuum systems.
  • – The vacuum system features ultra-efficient airflow. The simplified airflow path maximizes pickup and filtration effectiveness, while minimizing the amount of material that passes through the blower, reducing premature wear.
