HX30G Vacuum Excavator

Higher Productivity. Lower Cost.

Powered by a 31-hp engine, the HX30G is designed to handle a broad range of underground construction, excavation and cleanup tasks without breaking the bank or compromising productivity and comfort. Customer-driven design enhancements help meet the needs of the operators that use the machine daily. The powerful, low-profile machine reduces unit height while maintaining ample ground clearance.

Proven Productivity

Powered by a 31-hp (23.1-kW) Vanguard™ engine, the unit provides optimal suction power and water pressure in a low-profile package for any small- to mid-sized hydro excavation job or other non-hazardous cleanup tasks.

Featuring outstanding suction and water pressure, the HX30G is equipped with an efficient 543-cfm (15.3-m3/min) blower and a powerful water system with water-pressure capacity of 3,000 psi (207 bar) and 4.2-gpm (16-L/min) flow.

The HX vacuum excavation line features a new patent-pending make/break seal design, which optimizes air flow for increased efficiency and simplified plumbing. An optional reverse-flow feature allows quick and easy spoil offloads for improved productivity.

Standard on the 12K, 14K and 20K trailer configurations is a cyclonic three-stage filtration system that cleans the air before it reaches critical components. It is comprised of the debris tank, cyclonic filter and 0.5-micron washable vacuum filter - offering the industry's best filtration for maximum protection of key components.

Low-Profile Design

The construction-grade HX30G features a durable, narrow frame for easy navigation in urban or congested areas.

A low-profile design features a reduced height to ease maneuverability. This allows the unit to fit in height-restrictive areas, without compromising ground clearance, so operators can more easily avoid ground-level obstacles.

An exclusive, hose-storage design allows operators to store the hose flat and straight inside the unit frame – a direct customer-driven enhancement. The vac door also features convenient storage for unit tools, including the vac tube and digging lance.

Patented, advanced door linkage automates lockout when fully opened, without requiring any additional effort from the operator.

The HX30G now has hydraulic controls located at the rear of the units, allowing full visibility of all hydraulic functions.

An optional dual work light features two LED floodlights in the back of the vac unit for use in dark or night conditions.

Enhanced Visibility

The HX30G is equipped with your choice of a 500- or 800-gal (1893- or 3028-L) debris tank to meet the requirements of a variety of jobs.

Package options:

  • 800-gallon configuration includes:
    • A standard configuration equipped with a 200-gal freshwater tank and a 20K GVWR trailer.
  • 500-gallon configuration includes:
    • A non-CDL configuration equipped with an 80-gal freshwater tank and a 9.9K GVWR trailer.
    • A standard configuration with a 200-gal freshwater tank and a 12K GVWR trailer.
    • A heavy configuration with a 500-gal freshwater tank and a 14K GVWR trailer.

All trailer configurations are NATM compliant and are offered with an optional toolbox for all configurations excluding the 9K GVWR option.

An optional jib boom is available on all configurations (excluding the 9.9K GVWR trailer configuration) with exclusive dual articulation, providing the widest range of motion in the industry, as well as a hose restraint, which helps support the unit’s hose while working.

The machine can easily be configured to accommodate operator controls on either the left or the right side to meet each contractor’s individual needs.

Simplified Maintenance

The cyclonic filtration system available on the 12K, 14K and 20K trailer configurations minimizes filter cleaning frequency, while providing superior filtration, resulting in increased productivity.

An optional spare tire with a carrier allows easy access to a spare when needed, reducing downtime.
