Usage & Benefits

The X-10 Truck Mounted Hydro Excavator was developed especially for the Australian market by Hi-Vac to meet the unique needs of Australia’s NDD and liquid waste contractors.

Each X-Vac X-10 vacuum truck for sale in Australia is fitted up to the Volvo FM540 8×4 truck, chosen because of their high power output, required to support the Hi-Vac’s impressive blower output, as well as their quality and reputation in this application.

Both X-Vac and Aquatech combination jetter/vac units feature a no-load blower rating of 5750 CFM, but what is more significant is that the Roots WHISPAIR positive displacement blower is able to maintain an unprecedented 2000CFM at 27HG of vacuum. This is over 30% higher CFM under load than previously seen in Australia.

All Hi-Vac vac trucks and combination jet/vacs trucks are shot blasted, phosphate washed and painted with Sherwyn Williams wet on wet paint application for excellent paint life and corrosion resistance.
