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.

Company “Max Huss” and their story of success with suction excavators

Founded in 1847, the company Max Huss, located in Neumünster/ Germany has been using MTS suction excavators for more than 15 years. Starting as a classic civil engineering company that only used the suction excavator for their own projects, they have been offering more and more operated service where they supply the suction equipment with trained operators.

Because of the expansion of the business in the area of laying fibre optic cable, Max Huss bought a new suction excavator in 2016.

Max Huss also works intensively with the horizontal directional drilling procedure for underground cable and pipe installations.

High volume of bentonite suspension is found in the entry and exit bell holes.

Junior manager Max- Lennard Huss, B.Eng, told us:” The MTS suction excavator creates new business opportunities besides the classic civil engineering sector. We are especially excited that the suction excavator is able to remove bentonite in all forms.
