Vacuum Excavating in remote locations is similar to traditional hydro excavation, except instead of working right off the boom of the Vac Trucks, an industrial vacuum hose is run up to several hundred feet from the truck to the location that is difficult to get to.

Remote Vacuum Excavation is used to solve many problems in regards to difficult excavation locations. Some of these problems are:

  • Low overhead clearance, inhibiting the truck to get close to the location
  • Tight spaces, that the truck cannot fit through
  • Unstable soil, that would be dangerous for the truck to drive on
  • Underground utilities that are close to the soil, that cannot be driven over

Whenever these barriers occur in excavation projects, remote excavation is a great tool to excavate those hard to reach places. The truck can be parked away from the difficult excavation site and the pipe can run all the way from the truck to the excavation site.

Advantages to Remote Vacuum Excavation

  • There is no need for hand digging, that can be incredibly slow, strenuous, and can damage delicate utilities
  • Low Clearance spaces can be avoided
  • You can remove the material up multiple stories with the high powered vacuum
  • Excavating around the maze of underground pipes and utilities with vacuum excavation removes the risk of damaging the utilities.
  • Excavating in narrow spaces, places with low clearance, or anywhere else a machine or truck cannot reach is made easy and simple with vacuum excavation
  • You can excavate indoors (in basements for example), where other excavation equipment can’t reach without having to hand dig.
