Ditch Witch, a Charles Machine Works Company, has introduced the new Prospector Nozzle for better productivity on hydroexcavation jobs. Operating at 3,000 psi, the nozzle helps operators conquer the toughest challenges while boosting performance by 30 percent compared to similar nozzles on the market today.
Compatible with all Ditch Witch vacuum excavators and other competitive models, the nozzle reduces water consumption on the job while its cone-shaped cut mitigates damage to underground utility lines, aiding operator’s safety and productivity. The nozzle’s rotating, conical design provides an 18-degree cone of optimized coverage, ideally suited for a variety of hydroexcavation tasks. Constructed with durable, stainless-steel housings and tungsten-carbide wear surfaces, the Prospector Nozzle is able to withstand excavation in harsh environments while also giving the accessory a longer life compared to other nozzles on the market. The Ditch Witch factory also has introduced the Prospector Digging Lance, which uses a vertical trigger for more ergonomic operation. The lance improves operator comfort and helps keep operators in an upright position during excavation jobs.
One year after releasing its very first HTV (Hydro Truck Vac) PTO, Vac-Tron Equipment is now introducing its NEW JTV (Jetter Truck Vac) PTO series. The JTV 873 PTO is a new series of PTO truck driven systems that combine vacuum excavation with high pressure jetter capabilities putting this truck in a league of its own. The Power Take Off of the truck drives a positive displacement vacuum blower that produces 1,000 cfm at 16-hg vacuum pump. It also comes standard with reverse pressure, 800-gal debris tank, 300-gal water supply, 15 gpm at 3,000 psi water pump, hydraulic rear claw door, big red filter housing, and 500 ft x ½ in. jetter hose reel. A major benefit of the PTO Driven unit is that all components are controlled from the truck eliminating the extra weight, space, and cost of the pony motor. The available towing package is another benefit allowing you to tow other equipment to the job site to help with efficiency. This is an exceptional vacuum excavator for many projects including sewer jetting, potholing, storm drain cleaning, lateral cleanout and many more.

Vacall AllJetVac combination sewer cleaners provide governments and contractors with an ideal collection performance features for sewer line maintenance – all powered by a single chassis engine. Rather than requiring two engines like other combination sewer cleaners, the AllJetVac single-engine concept slashes fuel consumption, cuts harmful emissions and reduces routine maintenance downtime and costs while also holding down the price of the unit. AllJetVac models have a strong positive displacement blower system for excellent jetting action and superior vacuum power. The oval-shaped debris body has cylindrical sides for extra strength and efficient material dumping. Water tanks, fabricated from high quality aluminum, are mounted high on the chassis away from road debris. Optional galvanized debris bodies and water tanks carry lifetime warranties. Standard on AllJetVac models is an intelligent AllSmartFlow CAN-bus control system. The AllSmartFlow has a programmable LCD display that monitors engine, water-flow and vacuum performance while allowing for more precise boom and reel movements. Water flow control monitoring also can reduce trips for refills.
