Vermeer Introduces High-Capacity, Truck-Mounted Vacuum Excavators

(UC) - Vermeer Corporation announced it has purchased a minority equity investment in and signed a distribution agreement with Vacuum X-Traction Products Inc. 

Through the agreement, VXP will supply a series of Vermeer truck-mounted vacuum excavators to be sold exclusively through Vermeer industrial dealers. The first of these products, the VXT500 Vacuum Excavator, will be introduced during the 2020 WWETT Show in Indianapolis on February 18.

The VXT500 is an eight-inch vac with an eight-yard spoil tank capacity. It is ideal for utility applications where a higher capacity machine with a smaller footprint is desired. The VXT500 joins a family of VXP-manufactured vacs featuring vacuum blowers that deliver 5,000-6,400 cubic feet per minute and spoil tank capacities ranging up to 16 yards. In addition, VXP has built and will offer a vacuum excavation truck equipped with a pressurized detachable box, and a truck with an extendable long-reaching boom for specialty applications.

Based in Fort Morgan, Colorado, VXP was founded in 2014 by Gary Harms and Juan Mota. They will continue as majority shareholders and product development leaders through the new partnership with Vermeer.

“We are excited to partner with Vermeer and its dealers who are well equipped to offer and support our range of high-capacity solutions designed to help customers work more efficiently and cost-effectively,” said Harms.

VXP will begin supplying Vermeer machines to Vermeer dealers in mid-2020 with a focus first in North America, and later expanding into other regions of the world where large truck-mounted vacs are in high demand. For more information about these products, please visit
