Vacmasters - SYSTEM 5000 Air-Vacuum Excavators

The System 5000 is a commanding excavation tool — the only one you’ll need for underground utility location, repairs, maintenance, and installation. It uses intense air power to penetrate, expand and explode the soil from within while keeping it dry for easy vacuuming and quick backfilling. It’s versatile and adaptable and offers high maneuverability with solid performance. It’s dynamic in its many uses and is economical to operate—do more work in less time, anywhere.

The digging speed of the SYSTEM 5000 is substantially faster than the SYSTEM 4000, with only a negligible increase in overall size. The 5000’s high-intensity, supersonic compressed air is a solid performer in rock-hard soils, second only to our largest system, the boom-equipped SYSTEM 6000. Dig a pothole of any size in record time or open up larger areas for installations, maintenance, or repair.
