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.
Features & Benefits
AIR-VACUUM EXCAVATION EFFICIENCY
Eliminates need to continually transport and dispose of mud spoils and replenish water supplies. Spoils stay dry for fast, efficient backfilling More time spent on the job means reduced job costs and increased revenues and profits.
AIR-VACUUM EXCAVATION SAFETY
Unlike water, a non-compressible fluid that can cut or otherwise damage utilities, air is compressible, won’t damage utilities and is non-conductive. Air won’t damage the road base and won’t spread contamination plumes.
POWERFUL 173 H.P. ENGINE AND 300 CFM/220 PSI AIR COMPRESSOR
Potholes faster in difficult soils, performing more work in less time. Opens up larger areas and trenches. Reduces job costs, increases revenues and profits.
POWERFUL POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT BLOWER RATED AT 1400 CFM @ 15” HG
Top-notch vacuum performance for potholing and trenching spoils as well as directional boring slurry 4” vacuum hose for fast, efficient vacuuming in all soil conditions. Faster vacuuming means reduced job costs and increased revenues and profits.
HYDRAULICALLY POWERED, FULL-OPENING REAR DOOR
Saves time, reduces job costs, increases profits.
Powerful John Deere turbo diesel engine drives all systems; vacuum, air and water. One engine to maintain reduces maintenance costs and increases profitability.
SELF-PURGING FILTRATION SYSTEM
Reverse-flow air automatically cleans the system filters. Greatly reduces maintenance and downtime, increasing production and profitability.
FAST-ACTING INTERCEPTOR CANISTER
Rear-mounted canister collects soil and air-actuated dump door quickly dispenses it for fast, easy backfilling. Saves time, increases production, reduces costs and increases profitability. Keeps dry and wet spoils separate.
WORLDWIDE FACTORY WARRANTY SERVICE
