Vermeer started with a simple solution, and today, yellow iron takes its place on jobsites in 10 different markets around the world. But this didn’t happen overnight. Take the XR2 vacuum excavator, which was developed after talking with utility contractors about the limitations associated with traditional hydro-excavators. They told us they understand the soft excavation advantages of hydro-excavators, but they sometimes felt limited by the production of many units due to weight concerns and water storage capacities. Listening to customer challenges is core to our success and one of the reasons the XR2 will help you be Equipped to Do More.®, whether you’re utility potholing, stitch boring or slot trenching.
