Ditch Witch Vacuum Excavation Truck

The Ditch Witch FXT50 truck vacuum excavator has the power and functionality to do it all—everything from potholing to cleanup of all types of spills, HDD fluids and jobsite debris—and do it all more quietly than any other vac system in its horsepower class. And we built the FXT50 to be as robust as it is versatile, engineering it to flex independently of the truck to produce maximum structural integrity. Add it all up and you’ve got a long-term solution to all of your cleanup and soft excavation needs.
  • Designed specifically for mounting on truck frame rails, allowing system components to flex independently of truck, for maximum structural integrity.
  • Easily accessible controls and service points; curbside controls can be configured for left- or right-hand traffic, for greater safety and convenience.
  • Mounts to single-axle truck of your choice, new or used, so you can control the level of initial investment and customize with toolboxes and support equipment; complies with all truck manufacturers’ requirements.
  • Designed for minimal overall package height, resulting in a lower center of gravity and better handling during transport
  • Saddle-style tanks provide optimal weight distribution to keep payload over rear axle.
  • Equipped with a 49-hp (36.5-kW) Deutz® diesel engine, the FXT50 has an extremely efficient 1020-cfm (28.8-m3/min) blower and a powerful water system with a water pressure capacity of 3,000 psi (207 bar) and 5-gpm (19-l/min) flow.
  • Remote-fill water tank allows for easy filling and prevents siphoning back into the water supply.
  • Integrated tool rack on door and underbody hose storage help simplify operation.
