Incredible power, features, and efficiency come together in one of our most versatile systems ever.
A potent weapon in your company arsenal
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.
Power with a purpose
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.
Easy to operate and user-friendly, this system has a full-opening rear door, so backfilling is fast and efficient. Its modest size and well-designed built-in, easy-access storage allows a two-man crew to set up for digging quickly and stow equipment away in minutes when the job is done. The SYSTEM 5000 makes sense both operationally and economically. Power means performance; performance means profit.
SYSTEM 6000 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
Water is conductive, making it especially dangerous around buried electrical utilities—air-vacuum excavation makes injuries and damage claims much less likely and results in increased revenues and profits
Air won’t damage the road base and won’t spread contamination plumes.
