1200 Truck for Maximum Maneuverability and Durability

When you want to maximize payload and weight distribution, for easy and effective locating/potholing. The Hydro-Spade 1200 Single Axle Truck Unit is filled with design innovations that come from our extensive experience. We know you want reliable, durable, easy to use hydro excavation equipment. And you need it to go anywhere the work is, in all weather conditions.


Loaded trucks are sensitive to balance and that is why Hydro-Spade has come up with a better design. Our Balanced Weight Distribution gives an operator the Hydro-Spade advantage of maximized payload.

The enclosed blower compartment minimizes blower noise.

Heavy duty construction gives you maximum durability and longevity. Our positive shut off protection and Magnum filter with spun bonded filter cartridges, provide maximum protection for the blower unit.

Cleaning is easy via a full opening rear access door with a four pinwheel closures. The 6 inch drain valve allows discharge of liquids prior to dumping the spoils. Spun bonded polyester cartridge type blower filtration is easy to clean on site with the water pressure wand.

All hydraulic operating controls are installed on the right side pump cabinet. Electrical components are mounted inside the cabinet, in weather enclosures. Boom functions are controlled by a wireless handhled controller, plus a tethered cable back up.

Stainless steel water tanks and the enclosed hose reel in a heated compartment make winter use easy. The anti-freeze kit protects the water system from freeze up.
