Piling Hole Excavation
Hydro excavation’s precision makes it ideal for piling hole excavation. Digging holes of varying diameters and depths for all types of pilings can be done quickly and safely with hydro excavation. Since hydro excavation is a non-destructive process, underground utilities that may be uncovered during excavation are not harmed in contrast to the high risk of damage that exists with using manual digging methods.
For piling hole excavation, Super Products’ Mud Dog Hydro Excavator uses a unique combination of water pressure and vacuum, combined in one self-contained mobile unit. Water is pressurized and injected into the ground through a handheld wand to safely wash soil from the underground area. The resulting slurry is vacuumed from the excavation through a large debris hose connected to a debris tank.
Since it is a non-destructive process, hydro excavation eliminates the risk of damage to buried cables and pipes. Not only is hydro excavation faster and more accurate, but it also does less damage to the surrounding soil than mechanical excavation and thus minimizes site restoration time and expense.
