We represent the German manufacturer of suction excavators (suction units) MTS Mobile Tiefbau Saugsysteme GmbH ( with exclusive rights.


“These are unique, efficient and versatile suction units changing the concept of excavation works, instead of the usual digging tools or equipment!”

Suction excavator: a brief description

In Europe patent-protected suction excavators of company MTS Mobile Tiefbau Saugsysteme GmbH are mounted on truck chassis of different brands. With the installation, which can be compared with huge hoover, through the suction hose in the tank are sucked: soil, mud, water, clay, gravel, sand, stones and other material with a diameter up to 25 cm and weighing up to 40 kg.

High-performance fans create a powerful stream of air that is sucking material through the suction hose into the tank. When the tank is full, it is emptied by tipping. It can be emptied both into a construction waste container standing next to it or into a dump truck.

The patented filter system protects people and the environment from dust emissions, thereby guaranteeing efficient suction.

Soundproofing system “cares” about compliance to the standards for noise emissions.

Manufacture of suction excavators conducted in compliance with the EU directives 98/37/EG with identification of CE and TÜV certification.
