THE BEST SOLUTION

Hydro-excavation is a new method of excavating that is growing fast around the USA and Canada.  A hydrovac truck uses high pressure water to move soil while simultaneously vacuuming it into the debris tank on the truck. It can then be easily moved off the job site.  This is a safe, reliable and efficient method of excavation. The hydrovac truck has many applications and benefits in the utility and excavating world. Some benefits are:

  • Able to get within close proximity to locates without damaging utility lines

  • NO  shoveling!

  • Faster results

  • Safer for both the worker and utility line(s).

  • More efficient and has much fewer break downs than a hydrovac trailer

  • Cleaner

  • Less labor

  • Less disruption of soil

  • More precise

  • Can dig through frost

WHY HYDROVAC

The Hydro excavation truck can precisely dig exactly where you need it to. They can even dig right on top of the utility line to expose it to day light without any damage. One problem is that most companies choose to buy/rent a trailer-mounted hydrovac out of convenience. I have used those hundreds of times. They get the job done, but about halfway through you find yourself asking, “is this even worth it?” The trailers are slow, they get clogged easily, the suction and water pressure are weak, and they don’t hold enough water or debris. You won't find that happening with the big hydrovac truck.  Once you see this unit run, you won’t want anything else! I’m excited to bring this service to Sioux Falls.
Being a local company, I can also provide 24/7 emergency call outs.

SERVICES

EXPOSE UNDERGROUND UTILITIES 

When you need to know exactly where an underground utility line actually is for an excavation, we can dig it up without damage so you can physically see it. 

POLE HOLES

When you’ve got to set a pole near some underground utilities, it is usually more efficient to dig the pole hole with the HydroVac. Hand-digging takes time and can still damage utilities or injure workers. 

SPLICE PITS

Splice pits are a great application for a HydroVac tuck. For a repair, the last thing you want is to make more work for yourself by further damage. We can also open a splice pit before the outage if you’re splicing into existing utilities. 

TRENCHING

When the trench needs to go across or parallel to multiple utilities, HydroVac can be a worry-free option. We can also get right up against buildings and in lawns with minimal ground disturbance. 

BACKYARD AND REMOTE EXCAVATIONS 

We can get our hoses from the street to a backyard without fence removal, equipment matting, or potential property damage. We can dig in tight spots where traditional equipment just can’t get to. 

FROST EXCAVATIONS 

The frozen ground during winter can put a damper on hand-digging and mini-excavators. We’ve got a boiler system on our trucks that heats and circulates the water to get right through any amount or frost. 

MANHOLE AND CATCH BASIN CLEAN-UP

This is a great way to get a manhole in a condition able to be worked in. Water pumps are slow and often leave a pretty good layer of muck on the bottom. We can get rid of all the water and debris in a fraction of the time. 

ABLE TO EXCAVATE ALONG BUILDING FOUNDATION

We can dig a precise hole for new egress window installation without damaging the lawn. We can also dig a narrow trench along the foundation for insulation or water proofing.  No need to over dig.
