Air Saber Lance boosts digging performance for air excavation
Accessory provides greater digging performance with industry-leading 250 psi rating
Ditch Witch, a Charles Machine Works Company, has introduced the Air Saber lance, a new excavation accessory for the company’s FXT air-excavator equipment line.
The Air Saber is rated for operation at 250 psi, empowering operators to dig faster and more efficiently. The lance’s innovative design increases airflow for users while maintaining safe operation. A spring-lock, quick-connection system prevents the air hose from inadvertent separation, giving operators direct command of the lance while supporting overall project safety.
“We continue to evaluate the market and customer feedback to provide operators with reliable equipment to make their jobs easier and as safe as possible,” said Jason Proctor, Ditch Witch product manager, Vacuum Excavators. “The Air Saber represents a leap forward in the air-excavation industry by improving operators’ comfort, safety and digging performance on the job. And the increased airflow at 250 psi is an industry game changer for faster operation.”
The lance’s fiberglass body is rated for higher air pressures and is constructed from nonconductive material. This helps increase operators’ safety for a variety of utility-installation projects. The lance’s ergonomic, full-hand squeeze trigger is located in a natural position, resulting in improved comfort and ease of use compared with other air lances on the market.
The Air Saber is compatible with the Ditch Witch FXT Air series (FXT30 Air, FXT50 Air and FXT65 Air) along with other air-excavator models on the market. The Air Saber also features a 36-inch extension for improved digging depths. The extension is quickly connected with union couplings to save operators time and increase job uptime.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
