Technology is a good thing, better yet it is a great thing when it saves time, money and even lives.
Hydro excavating is an example of new technology that is inching its way into commonplace in the world of construction. Contractors are choosing hydro excavating over traditional backhoe as they become educated to the savings in time, insurance and clean up.
What is hydro excavating?
Highly pressurized water is used to cut through dirt while a vacuum system simultaneously removes excess soil.
Why is it better than traditional backhoe digging?
Hydro excavating is much more precise as it removes the soil. There is far less clean up work and the risk of damaging pipes and utility line is low.
Contractors prefer hydro technology over traditional big machinery because it is precise, cleaner and saves money in insurance due to its higher safety rating and lower man power needs.
Why use hydro excavating for trenching?
Trenching is actually one of the most common uses of hydro technology. There are several forms of trenching. Each has its own application depending on the type of work to be done. A few forms of trenching include slot, box, cross and exploratory.
All trenching work begins with a pothole. The water pressure/vacuum system efficiently cuts straight down into the soil, digging as deep as needed for the necessary application. Once the proper depth has been reached, trenching in either a straight line or a circle will begin.
Hydro excavating can complete slot trenching by cutting a narrow and very accurate line. This will allow for burial of pipeline, fiber optics and cable lines.
