Minnesota Hydrovac Excavation Service
In need of a way to safely locate underground utilities? Want to avoid destructive and traditional digging methods involving heavy machinery and drills? Hydro excavation is the solution for you!
Hydrovac excavation using a vacuum is a safe and efficient way to dig trenches, locate utilities, and even clean industrial waste. Goliath Hydro-Vac is well-versed in hydro excavation. For all of your excavation needs in Minnesota, Goliath is here for you!
Hydro Excavation v.s. Mechanical Excavation
Hydro excavation and hydrovac trucks use high pressure water to excavate soil whereas mechanical excavation uses heavy-duty drilling equipment and often requires digging by hand to perform the same function. While both are capable of excavation, hydro excavation is often the more effective solution.
Minnesota winters are no joke and Goliath understands that your excavation needs can’t just take a break when it gets cold. Unlike mechanical excavation, which often cannot dig in winter months, hydrovac excavation can work in all weather conditions. That means, come winter, the work can continue, even with frozen soil.
Hydro excavation is also more efficient and precise, especially when uncovering underground utilities like cables. With less risk of damage to technicians and underground utilities, a hydro excavation truck is the clear choice.
How does hydrovac work?
Goliath Hydro-Vac has a fleet of 12 hydro-vac trucks equipped with high pressure water and high capacity vacuums. Our process is efficient and safe and creates as little disturbance to the landscape and surrounding soil as possible.
At Goliath, our hydro vac technicians use a stream of highly pressurized water from an onboard tank to break up dirt, rocks, and debris into a slurry. This water is controlled using a wand equipped with a variety of different nozzles to choose from. This makes our hydro excavation process easily customizable to fit your site’s unique needs.
Once our technicians have broken up the mud and soil into a slurry it is then sucked up with our high capacity vacuum located on board. This enables our technicians to maintain a clean job site. The slurry is held in an on-board debris tank located within the vacuum truck until it can be disposed of in the proper way.
Underground utilities like utility lines, gas lines, sewer lines, and electrical lines are not harmed in the hydro excavation process and this process can even be completed during winter months. Goliath’s hydro-vac trucks are equipped with on-board water boilers to help blast through frozen ground.
