Central Queenslandhydro excavation services

Hydro excavation also known as vacuum excavation is a non-destructive method of excavation whereby a Vacuum Loading System works in conjunction with a high-pressure water rotary jet that lances into the ground and removes water and soil as it excavates.

HYDRO EXCAVAC is able to safely excavate a specific area with precision…exact size and shape without either disturbing or causing damage to any underground infrastructure.

Our purpose-built vacuum excavators are designed and manufactured in Australia to excavate Aussie ground with ease. We do not compromise on the safety of underground assets.

We excavate at Telstra and Ergon Energy approved safe working pressures of 2,000psi, and are at least 2 times faster and efficient than other vacuum excavator trucks.

We have a fleet of vacuum excavators ranging from compact 2WD, for those tight spots in town, to high clearance 2wd & 4wd trucks for the difficult off road jobs.

We specialise in excavating safely and non-destructively in confined spaces including:

frequently asked questions

A hydrovac truck is a mobile piece of equipment that uses high pressure water to cut and liquefy the soil, while simultaneously using a high volume vacuum to remove the soil from the extraction.

The wet excavated material is suctioned into the tank mounted on the hydro excavator truck, and carried offsite to a designated dump location.

This method of non-destructive digging provides quick and precise excavations which require less backfill, less labour and cause significantly less environmental impact.

Non-destructive digging requires just one machine, a hydrovac truck to direct a powerful jet of water to the targeted area, loosening rocks and subsoil. This debris is then sucked into a tank on the hydrovac truck where debris can be taken from the site and disposed of appropriately.

The depth a hydrovac truck can excavate depends on the specific system. Larger and more powerful vacuum trucks can excavate up to a depth of 20 metres.

Contact us to find out about the depths our trucks can excavate.

Yes, we access tight areas, including restricted areas between residential properties.
