The Vermeer XR2 is not just a hydro-excavator, it's an on-site recycling system.

The XR2 vacuum excavator is the industry’s first vacuum excavator equipped with a shaker deck that separates liquids and solids to allow contractors to stay on the jobsite longer, work efficiently and reduce disposal expenses. Material excavated with the XR2 is fed through an onboard deceleration tank that exits through an airlock onto a shaker deck where solids and liquids are then separated. The solid material is moved by conveyor toward the rear of the machine where it is discharged and can be carried away or left on the jobsite, depending on the material. Used, slurry water is pumped into the fluid storage tanks for disposal. The design of the XR2 can help expand the use of vacuum excavation for everything from utility potholing and stitch boring to slot trenching and general construction, equipping you to do more.

Features & Benefits

Save space and time

This machine boasts 1500 gal (5678.1 L) of freshwater storage throughout four 500 gal (1892.7 L) tanks that hold both fresh water and slurry. As the freshwater tanks empty, they begin to fill with slurry – never wasting valuable space on the machine. 

Maintain suction

The airlock rotates continuously, discharging solids and liquids while maintaining vacuum within the system.

Remote control

Features a full-function remote control, allowing one-person operation of the boom, vac, conveyer, separation and dig pump.

Drive confidently

The effective weight distribution across a heavy-duty front axle and rear tandem drive axles allows you to drive confidently with a return weight under 54,000 lb (24,494 kg) when at the recommended full capacity of 10.5 ppg (1.26 sg) of slurry.

Keep on running

A hydraulic PTO helps keep you running and saves time because you do not need to shift power back and forth to the vac and truck.

Convey your material

Place solids separated from slurry where you want it with a convenient built-in conveyor belt that rotates 180-degrees and discharges 14 ft (4.3 m) out and up to 80” (203.2 cm).
