Brandt launches new hydrovac at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023
The HX120 was developed in response to the increasing need for hydrovacs that combine full-sized capacity with maneuverability in tight urban spaces.
The new unit boasts a water tank capacity of 1,150 U.S. gallons and an 11.6 cubic yard debris tank capacity, as well as a 28-foot boom reach with a 340-degree rotation. It is also one of the quietest hydro excavators in its class.
The HX120 helps underground excavation contractors work more efficiently with maximized legal load weights, quicker debris loading and unloading time, and the capacity to take on larger jobs without load weight concerns. The real-time measurement of water and overall truck weight enables operators to make quick, informed decisions, which reduces the risk of damage or overweight penalties.
"Operators have expressed their thoughts on the ideal hydrovac, one that will meet their unique needs, and we've listened," says Chris Semple, president of manufactured products at Brandt. "Through our collaborative product design process, Brandt has consulted extensively with contractors to create a machine that sets the standard for the industry."
