40 Utility Contractor | September/October 2018 PRODUCTS McLaughlin Mid-Range Vermeer ECO75 The McLaughlin mid-range Vermeer ECO75 truck-mounted vacuum excavator fea- tures a three-stage cyclonic filtration system allowing for both wet and dry excavation, as well as a cam-over full open external hydraulic door. The ECO75 truck-mounted vacuum excavator offers utility contractors better fuel economy and lower operating costs. By utilizing a 74-hp (55-kW) Deutz auxiliary engine to power the vacuum ex- cavator, contractors see reduced fuel consumption compared to running the vacuum excavator off a 270-hp (201-kW) PTO-driven truck engine. The excavator is available with a 500-, 800- or 1,200-gallon (1892.7, 3028.3 or 4542 L) spoil tank. Contractors can customize the system with an optional 5-in. (12.7-cm) boom, a sewer jetter or air compressor. The Vermeer ECO75 vacuum excavator by McLaughlin is available now through Vermeer global dealer network.
