Vermeer introduces new MX300 mixing system

Vermeer introduces new MX300 mixing system

The right-sized mixing system is key for drilling operations. With a redesigned, slim rectangular profile tank, the new Vermeer MX300 mixing system helps horizontal directional drilling (HDD) contractors optimize productivity and offers customizable mounting configuration options. Equipped with a 23 hp (17.2 kW) Kohler ECH 7300 EFI gas engine that outputs 350 gpm (1,324.9 Lpm) of flow, the MX300 mixing system power unit can be paired with up to two tanks at once to help decrease time spent mixing and refilling drilling fluid tanks. The unit's narrow rectangular tank design also helps maximize fluid volume, and a small footprint can help with convenient transporting and storage.

"The Vermeer MX300 mixing system is an upgrade to the MX240 model," explained Tod Michael, product manager of trenchless products at Vermeer. "With the ability to use one pump with one or two tanks, the MX300 is scalable to a contractor's jobsite needs from small bores to large-diameter and longer-distance HDD applications in varying soil types."
 
The new Vermeer mixing system can be paired with a 750 gallon (2,839.1 L) or 1,000 gallon (3,785.4 L) tank and works with a variety of horizontal directional drills. It features a wide-mouth hopper and suction hose for the convenient pouring of drilling additives. The tapered bottom of the rectangular tank design helps prevent additives from settling, building up and assists with efficient drainage. At a width of just 40 inches (101.6 centimeters), the MX300 can be mounted to transport two tanks inside a standard-sized enclosed truck.
 
The MX300 comes with a 16 gallon (60.6 L) fuel tank and is convenient to service with access to the roll jets through the top of the tank and two drainage points that are operated by two accessible valves.

LOAD 60 TONS IN JUST FOUR PASSES WITH VOLVO

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.     

When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
