Default VFD Dig Unit

Dig in with your VS4-10 Pro!



Available in black or clear but not without excavation related puns.

Can you dig it!

For those of you that have the Hurtz dig installed on a Pro or Ultra, please share photos.

That's perfect! Thanks a lot.

Just have to decide if I want black or clear...and wait for them to come back in stock.

Your welcome! Anytime!

I decided to go with the clear to match my axles. Plus, I find that the clear doesn't show the dirt as well and is easier to clean.

But, I love the black look and it would look great bolted up to the VFD trans!

I got lucky when I purchased mine. I saw VP post on FB that said they were in stock, so I jumped on it got it ordered.

I have the same thinking. Clear would match my axles, etc, but black would match the VFD.

I'm contemplating pre-ordering them at AMain, but I'm not sure where they rank in terms of getting stock.

They will be in stock on VP and at most dealers again very soon. Whether or not dealers get them depends on their ordering.

Did anyone else receive their dig unit with no rear output shaft in the pre-assembled back dig housing?

Welcome to the site. Just an FYI I can't see your photo embedded. It was only after I quoted you that I saw there's a hidden photo link. I never had Google Drive or Google Photos photo links to work consistently.

Anyway, my dig arrived just fine. I would reach out to Vanquish and they'll make it right ASAP.

Thanks, Jato. I did reach out to VP first as I didn't want to seem as though I were throwing shade. Just thought I'd put the question out on the forum to see if my case was an outlier, or indicative of a bigger issue on the assembly/QC side of things.

Learnin' & lurkin' here since '09, btw, just not particularly verbose.

I did. Didn't notice until the whole thing was together on the trans

Anyway Vanquish support gave me a tracking number for the replacement bits like 5 minutes after I sent them an email, good enough for me!

With the pro all I needed was a servo horn. I would assume the Ultra is the same.
