Features & Benefits

Selectable Air or Water Digging

Allows crews to use air 95% of the time, with water available when needed. Effective digging in all soil conditions.

Skid Mount Design

Allows installation on a trailer or truck.

Remote Operation

Operate up to 200 feet away for areas difficult to access. Our optional Barrel-Top Interceptor keeps the spoils at the digging site.

Quiet Operation

High efficiency absorption chamber silencer and enclosed power head minimize noise levels enabling you to be a good neighbour.

Low-Maintenance Design

Monitor and maintain oil levels, follow recommended checks and adjustments, and occasionally clean the polyester filter -- that's it!

Single-Engine Design

Powerful John Deere diesel engine drives all systems: vacuum, air and water. One engine to operate and maintain. Quality components mean readily available service.

Additional Benefits of Potholing with Air

Digs faster than water in most soils. Collected spoils remain dry for fast, efficient backfilling. Eliminates mud disposal problems. Safer for utilities and operator. Air won't damage roadbase.


High-quality paint combined with bead blasted metal surfaces means fast, easy clean-up and a machine that will look good for years.

Supervisory Control Panel

Automatic monitoring of all systems with auto-shut-down allows a 2-man crew to operate the system.
