Ditch Witch's MV800 is a compact vacuum excavator designed specifically for cleanup on horizontal directional drilling jobsites.

A commercial-grade, 31-hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard gas engine powers the MV800 and features an electric start and a high-capacity, remote air-intake filter that helps maximize performance.

The machine's filtration system includes an integrated carryover chamber that eliminates contaminants before they reach the blower, increasing efficiency and reducing downtime.

The MV800 is equipped with an 800-gallon spoils tank that is an ideal size for HDD drilling fluid cleanup jobs. With its optional reverse flow feature and optional hydraulic opening door, spoils removal is simple and efficient. The MV800 also offers an optional water system with a 100-gallon water tank and adjustable pressure up to 3,000-psi for soft excavation tasks such as potholing utilities.

The MV800 is designed for simple operation. Its standard curbside controls enable one-person control of all functions and promote jobsite safety. Other standard safety features include a strobe light, belt guards, and mechanical locks on all lift cylinders.

The entire MV800 system fits on a customized, 14,000-lb GVWR trailer that is compliant with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and includes high-visibility marking and an impact guard.

Rethinking Utilization: Using the Energy in Parked EVs

By Facundo Tassara
Think the return on investment for electric vehicles (EVs) is too long? Vehicle-to-grid technology allows EVs to earn money while parked by utilizing their large batteries to provide energy storage services for buildings, utilities, and the grid. This extra money can reduce the total cost of ownership of EVs.

Size Matters

By Sherb Brown
There is little doubt that the folks out there with 5,000-10,000 vehicles have a good handle on how much they should be paying; for everything from bucket trucks to sedan floor mats. But some of our recent survey data shows that vast hordes of the fleet market are paying close to retail rates for a lot of products and services.
