New, Right-Sized Vermeer MX300 Mixing System Optimizes Productivity

With a redesigned, slim, rectangular profile tank, the new Vermeer MX300 mixing system is right-sized to help horizontal directional drilling (HDD) contractors optimize productivity and offers customizable mounting configuration options.

Equipped with a 23 horsepower Kohler ECH 7300 EFI gas engine that outputs 350 gallons per minute of flow, the MX300 power unit can be paired with up to two tanks at once, decreasing time spent mixing and refilling drilling fluid tanks. The unit’s narrow rectangular tank design also helps maximize fluid volume, and a small footprint can help with convenient transporting and storage.

“The Vermeer MX300 mixing system is an upgrade to the MX240 model,” explained Tod Michael, product manager of trenchless products at Vermeer. “With the ability to use one pump with one or two tanks, the MX300 is scalable to a contractor’s job-site needs, from small bores to large-diameter and longer-distance HDD applications, in varying soil types.”

Paired with a 750- or 1,000-gallon tank, MX300 works with a variety of drills. It features a wide-mouth hopper and suction hose for the convenient pouring of drilling additives.

The tapered bottom of the rectangular tank helps prevent additives from settling and building up, and assists with efficient drainage. At a width of just 40 inches, the MX300 can be mounted to transport two tanks inside a standard-sized enclosed truck.

The MX300 comes with a 16-gallon fuel tank and is convenient to service with access to the roll jets through the top of the tank and two drainage points that are operated by two accessible valves.
