Excavation Equipment

CASE Construction 580 EV

While applications vary, each charge can support common eight-hour workdays, according to the manufacturer. The battery separately powers the drivetrain and hydraulic motors. 866-542-2736;

Ditch Witch HX30G
The HX30G vacuum excavator from Ditch Witch promises high-profile power in a low-profile design to ease navigation in congested and height-restricted areas. It is powered by a 31 hp Vanguard gas engine for optimal suction power and water pressure, according to the maker. To boost efficiency, it comes with a 542 cfm blower, 3,000 psi water pressure and 4.2 gpm water flow. It is offered with a 500- or 800-gallon tank. The machine is available in multiple trailer configurations, including the VT9 trailer that, when equipped with the 500-gallon tank, does not require a commercial driver’s license to transport. 800-654-6481;

Hand Tool

T&T Tools Mighty Probe 
The Mighty Probe from T&T Tools has a 3/8-inch hex rod (approximately 20% stiffer than a round rod) or a 7/16-inch hex rod (approximately twice as stiff as the standard round rod). Stiffer hex rods bend less to make the probe easier to push into the ground, especially when probing at deeper depths. Lengths are available from 36 to 78 inches in 6-inch increments. When the probe is combined with a slide adapter, an integrated mini slide-hammer probe is created, allowing technician to pound through difficult spots. 800-521-6893;

Septic Filters

BioMicrobics SaniTEE
The SaniTEE from BioMicrobics is designed to be an efficient, nonclog effluent screen that deflects solids back into a tank, while simultaneously attenuating surge flow. It drops into a standard 4-inch septic tank (for new builds or retrofitted) outlet tee. It is easily cleaned with the clean-in-place swab handle with a Buna-N disk fastened to the shaft. To clean, move the swab handle up and down to pass the swab through the center several times to act as a reverse pump to dislodge any debris in the filter or angled slots. No removal or running water is necessary. Solids touching the vertical surface of the screen tend to slough off and fall back into the septic tank. In this way, the device is somewhat self-cleaning. In general, the 4-, 8- and 16-inch device should be for use on conventional and advanced septic systems; and is suitable for all types of commercial (high-strength) wastewater treatment systems. 800-753-3278;

Polylok PL-250 
The PL-250 effluent filter from Polylok is designed to handle up to 3,000 gpd with 250 linear feet 1/16-inch linear filtration. It is easy to install and are designed for functionality and longevity, according to the maker. The cartridge cannot be installed incorrectly, with no direct bypass, and will fit any standard 6-inch tee. Its W design prevents solids from settling. 877-765-9565;

Sim/Tech Filter STF-100A2
The STF-100A2 pressure filter from Sim/Tech Filter helps maintain proper and efficient year-round operation of mounds, sand filters and other pressurized distribution systems. The low headloss (0.21 psi) pressure filter mounts on the discharge side of an effluent pump to prevent plugged holes and reduce effluent TSS. This mounting location also extends the time between servicing. The vortex action created by the pump scrubs the screen and the backflow through the filter after the pump shuts off, washing debris out. A single 2-inch filter can handle flow rates up to 83.8 gpm. It can be designed to handle almost any flow rate or load, according to the maker. Larger 3- and 4-inch filters are available. The standard screen filters to 1/16 inch, and optional socks allow for additional filtration to 0.024, 0.007 or 0.004 inch. 888-999-3290;
