FXT50 Truck Vacuum Excavator

Go More Places. Do More Jobs.

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.

Productivity

Easy access to power pack for convenient servicing.

Optional heater keeps water system from freezing in inclement weather and increases production in tight soils.

FXT50
Rugged design

Designed specifically for mounting on truck frame rails, allowing system components to flex independently of truck, for maximum structural integrity.

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.

Reusable, 0.5-micron vacuum filter and a blower relief valve air filter provide the industry's best filtration; optional cyclonic filter cleans the air before it reaches the filter, minimizing maintenance.
