    Equipped with a 49-hp (36.5-kW) Deutz® diesel engine, the FXT50 Air has an extremely efficient 1,020-cfm (28.8-m3/min) blower.

    Powerful water system with a water pressure capacity of 3,000 psi (207 bar) and 5-gpm (19-l/min) flow.

    Auto-clutching feature disengages the water pump when water is not in use, allowing full system power for suction.

    VERSATILITY

    Endless excavation capability is not limited by fresh water availability. Air excavation uses dry spoils to backfill the hole when the job is done, eliminating the time and expense of liquid spoils removal.

    The Ditch Witch designed air lance utilizes full system capabilities of high CFM and pressure for greater excavation performance.

    Low pressure setting powers various pneumatic tools such as jack hammers, tampers, impact wrenches, and chippers.

    FXT50 Air
    DESIGN

    Features a powerful cyclone filter that removes fine particles during excavation minimizing maintenance.

    Utilizes environmentally friendly oil in air system reducing overall environmental impact when excavating.

    Air excavation system positioned under the deck for increased deck space and convenient access.

    Designed for minimal overall package height, resulting in a lower center of gravity and better handling during transport.

    Saddle-style tanks provide optimal weight distribution to keep payload over rear axle.

    AIR SYSTEM

    Increased CFM and pressure promotes performance and productivity. Unique Ditch Witch design utilizes efficient transfer of power, eliminating lag times

    PTO driven air compressor provides air on-demand. Advanced mechanical design leverages power already available in the truck without requiring additional horsepower to run components.

    Dual air pressure system allows the operator to switch instantly from high pressure for excavating jobs to low pressure for auxiliary air tools.

    Choice of air excavation systems: Series 10 Air System with 200 cfm (5.7 m3/min) and 250 psi (17 bar) or the Series 12 Air System with 300 cfm (8.5 m3/min) and 250 psi (17 bar).
