Equipment that will make your business look more professional and stand out.

By increasing your collection capacity you will be able to add value & extra services to your business.

Non Destructive Digging (NDD) is now the preferred method of excavation for many in the Construction Industry. With hydro excavation, all project managers can enjoy the peace of mind knowing that the safety of all workers on site is being looked after during any excavation process. Thus, eliminating accidents and workplace injuries with this method of excavation and digging.

Hydro Excavation is the process of excavating soil with pressurised water and then using a vacuum to transfer the material into a debris tank. The high-pressure water cuts through & breaks up the soil, this will create a slurry. The vacuum is then able to lift the slurry from the excavation area and the material is transferred to the debris tank.

This non-destructive process is a more accurate way to excavate soil. The risk of damaging utility services is reduced, when compared to manual or mechanical digging methods. This enables safe, fast, precise excavation that requires less backfill, labour and restoration.

Other Advantages to using hydro-excavation


Contractors discovered that using hydro-excavation with water during cold weather or drought was an effective alternative. This is because during tough climate seasons, the ground is firmer and less easy to dig, which is harder to excavate using traditional mechanical means.
