Our large fleet of modern vacuum trucks provide a professional, fast, low impact and environmentally friendly non-destructive digging service to sites across Australia.
Vacuum Excavation is the process of using high-pressure water jets to break up solid ground including clay, sand, rock and soil after which the remaining spoil is then suctioned into the tank of a vacuum truck for later disposal or treatment.
Vacuum Excavation is used to safely excavate around underground services, underground utilities, tree roots, telecommunication cables and power cables for the easy repair, maintenance or relocation.
Also known as Non-destructive digging or hydro excavation this service is the safest way to excavate around underground services, as it is non-invasive, cost effective and accurate in underground utility locating, reducing the risk associated with damaging these assets.
These vacuum excavation techniques also minimise the impact to streetscape, reducing disruption to traffic flows and other surface activities.
