Hydro Excavation

Hydro Excavation and vacuum truck service hire available to customers across Victoria

Hydro Excavation is the process of using highly pressurised water and dirt to clear dirt and debris to perform tasks such as trenching, non-destructive digging and clearing blocked pipes and culverts, the dirt and blockages mix with the water to create a slurry that is removed by a vacuum truck. The main benefit of using hydro excavation on your project is that you can excavate delicate areas such as ones that contain buried utility lines and fragile piping without causing them damage, the water and dirt simply flow around the buried items and get sucked away leaving them entirely unharmed.

Before you break ground, it’s important to know what’s under it.


When you are performing any type of vacuum excavation on site, it is vital to know precisely where all utilities such as lines and pipes are located before you start digging. While the process won’t cause them damage, knowing where the buried utilities in your designated excavation area can either help you find them or avoid them when work begins with our vacuum truck. Our expert geo-location and ground penetrating radar team are Dial before you Dig (DYBD) certified, and we use this certification to help our clients in their responsibility to visually locate any structural or utility assets buried in the designated excavation area, providing a non-destructive digging method. Like other contractors, we can't be held responsible for any assets not so identified.


We pride ourselves in the high-quality standards produced by our staff and our machinery.


All of our machinery is regularly maintained to the highest level of quality possible; this minimises the possibility of delays due to machinery breakdown that would cost you time and money.
