Vac-Ex Tracked Air Excavators Now Readily Available, Says NZ Vac-Ex Partner Youngman Richardson

After an official launch onto the New Zealand market in 2022, Youngman Richardson is seeing great demand for Vac-Ex T-VAC 2 track and AIR-VAC track excavation models, designed to be safe and specialised alternatives to traditional digging methods for exposing buried utilities.

According to Youngman Richardson sales director Phil Fairfield, their Vac-Ex tracked air vacuum excavators are proving popular with industry professionals needing to locate and safely expose buried utilities, especially on construction sites.

“The Vac-Ex units can excavate narrow and deep holes and trenches up five times faster than the time it takes to dig the same area by hand.”

The T-VAC 2 tracked air vacuum excavator is also proving popular with customers, especially for its compatibility with New Zealand conditions.

“The T-VAC 2 can excavate most wet or dry ground and is ideal for sites where space is limited. We’re also seeing customers preferring this excavator for its off-road capabilities, suitability in residential and commercial environments. Ideal for ground excavation in utility, construction and hire industries: pipelaying, rail works, cable laying, gas, road works, tunnelling, arborculture, military, airports, municipal, building, environmental, hydro-demolition and petro-chemical.
