  • Rugged design
    FXT30
    Rugged design

    Designed specifically for mounting on truck frame rails, allowing system components to flex independently of truck, for maximum structural integrity.

    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.

    Reusable, 0.5-micron washable vacuum filter and a blower relief valve air filter provide the industry's best filtration; optional cyclonic filter cleans the air before it reaches the filter, minimizing maintenance.

  • Operator Comfort
    FXT30
    Operator Comfort

    The 73-dBA FXT30 is one of the quietest vacs on the market; fully enclosed, insulated and lockable power pack protects major components from weather and vandalism while leading the industry in noise reduction.
