Consider your excavation options:

Vac excavation offers many advantages compared to traditional hydraulic powered trenching and excavation machines. Our excavator systems use water and vacuum technology to quickly and cleanly blast through dirt and rocks to expose pipeline, utility and electrical systems or to open the ground for future work. Digging trenches using general excavation techniques also poses potential safety hazards when excavating around buried gas lines and hydro utilities. Vac excavation provides a safe and non-destructive alternative to conventional backhoes or other mechanical means.


Hydrovac Excavators improve productivity and safety

The most obvious advantage is speed. Excavation projects that previously took days can often be completed in hours. Equally important is safety: using hot or cold pressurized water to excavate and expose buried utilities such as gas, electrical or phone services significantly reduces the risk of damage.

Protecting the environment

Environmental damage and restoration costs are also significantly reduced using hydrovac because surface damage in the surrounding excavation zone is greatly minimized.

Hydrovac technology is not limited to traditional shoring and trenching
