Super Products Mud Dog 1600 Hydro Excavator

July 2011, Vol. 66 No. 7

Super Products LLC designed and built its new Mud Dog 1600 to meet the demanding hydro excavation challenges inherent in oil field, mining and cold weather applications.

The unit features a 16 cubic yard debris body, standard 1500 gallon water capacity and rear-mounted boom that in addition to offering 335 degree rotation can pivot down 25 degrees for eight feet of extra digging and access to hard-to-reach areas.

The Mud Dog 1600 offers water pressures up to 18GPM @ 3000 PSI in combination with its eight-inch positive displacement vacuum system, which provides air flow of 5800 cfm/28 Hg to ensure thorough cleanup of debris. An onboard boiler with 714000 Btu/Hr capacity heats up the high-pressure water to break up frozen, stubborn material and flush out tight spaces efficiently. Winter recirculation, anti-freeze and air purge systems ensure the unit performs optimally in even the harshest of climates. Its heated aluminum cabinet offers easy access and increased storage capacity.

The Mud Dog 1600 also has Super Products’ industry-unique ejector plate technology and the ability to tilt its debris body two feet to enable fast, thorough unloading and washdowns. Additionally, the truck-mounted hydro vac relies on a simple control panel setup and a single engine design that can result in lower fuel costs and maintenance requirements.
