Conventional excavation methods are not suited to digging in tight or congested spaces. When fiber optic cables, telephone lines, water mains or other utility lines need to be repaired or excavation is needed in space-restricted areas, hydro excavation equipment can be located away from the actual excavation site. This minimizes the impact and restoration requirements to the actual site, and eliminates traffic congestion and inconvenience.
Super Products’ Mud Dog hydro excavator can be parked near the work area and its hoses extended to the excavation site. The 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.
