We offer high-quality vacuum excavators to help you get the best results on all your excavation projects.
When most people think about excavation, they tend to think of earth-moving equipment, such as backhoes or bulldozers or sometimes even manual shovels. While these tools have a long history of use in excavation, another method is gaining popularity—namely, vacuum excavation. Unlike mechanical excavators, a vacuum excavator does not use sharp blades to dig into the soil, but instead uses vacuum suction. Our team at Boss Vac LLC has extensive experience with vacuum excavators, and we can provide the high-quality equipment you need to start using this method for yourself.
As we alluded to above, using a vacuum excavator is very different than using a mechanical earth mover. First, you will need to send pressurized air or water into the soil to loosen it up, then you will turn on the vacuum to suck the slurry into a storage tank. Unlike mechanical excavators, vacuum excavators do not disturb the surface around the target area, and they will not damage pipes or other underground structures (since the soil slurry will simply flow around obstacles). In addition, vacuum excavators can be positioned well away from the excavation site—since the vacuum hose can stretch far—which reduces crowding and makes it easier for you and your team to get around the site in question. If you need a new vacuum excavator for any reason—whether your original equipment needs to be replaced or you want to switch to this method for the first time—simply give us a call to find out how to get started.
