Traditional mechanical excavation methods are not suitable for digging in tight, congested, or sensitive 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 is the ideal digging method.
Since hydro excavation equipment utilizes a single, extendable hose that both delivers pressurized water and immediately vacuums displaced soil and water, hydro excavation equipment can be located away from the actual excavation site. This minimizes the impact and restoration requirements for the actual site, eliminates inconvenience, and in jobsite settings on or near roads, virtually eliminates traffic congestion.
Super Products’ Mud Dog® hydro excavators can be parked in an area out of the way near the work area, and its hoses can be extended to the excavation site. The Mud Dog® hydro excavator uses a unique combination of pressurized water and an industrial-strength vacuum, combined in one self-contained, mobile unit. Water is pressurized and injected into the ground through a handheld wand (much like a conventional pressure washer) to safely break up soil from the underground area. The resulting slurry of displaced soil and water is then immediately vacuumed from the excavation site through a large debris hose connected to a debris tank housed on the self-contained, mobile unit, eliminating the need for extra equipment just for debris containment and disposal.
