Britain’s first “Citysafe” in operation

LMD Vacuum Excavation has taken delivery of Britain’s first vacuum excavator built specifically for use in towns and cities. The Citysafe incorporates features that improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists, motorists and the driver themselves. These include the DirectVision cab with panoramic glazing, low entry and exiting, and image and sensor-based safety assistance.

Vacuum excavation (also referred to as suction excavation) enables holes to be dug without the need for mechanical diggers. In urban environments where there is a high density of utility infrastructure – water and gas pipelines; electricity and telecoms cables – the use of vacuum excavation eliminates pipe bursts and cable strikes. Bursts and strikes cause huge disruption to utility services and potentially life-threatening danger to operatives and the general public.

The Econic cab on LMD’s Citysafe provides a low seating position for the driver. Combined with the full-height glazed door on the passenger side, this provides the driver with direct eye-contact with cyclist, pedestrians and motorists. The full-height glazed door – from wheel to cab top – concertinas to ensure safe opening and avoid potential accidents.
