Why use SES suction excavators?

Our suction excavators have been designed to offer the best technical and safest solutions available, and benefit from some of the following features.

 DV Fan Assembly


Our suction excavators use the latest RSP DV fan technology which exhibits outstanding performance characteristics, excellent running capacities and incorporates many health and safety benefits;

  • Reduced sound levels of fan assembly and air outlet silencer for minimal effect on the environment.
  • Improved running efficiencies, reducing fuel consumption
  • Internal cooling system for lower running temperatures
  • Fully automatic central lubrication system for reduced service intervals
  • Slam shut safety valve (Reduces negative pressure at suction hose instantly in the event of an emergency)


compressorCompressor capacity 4.5 m³/min, 7.5 bar. This is the largest compressor available in its range enabling several tools to be operated at the same time.

The on board compressor enables us to loosen the ground with specialised air tooling when required. 2 x 8m compressed air hoses are fitted on retractable hose reels at the rear of the vehicle for operate ease. This reduces set-up time and reduces the Health and Safety risk of slips, trips and falls onsite as only the amount of hose required needs to be deployed.
