Vacuum Excavation

Vacuum excavation is a SAFE means of excavating for new and around existing underground utilities in any ground conditions. The system can be used ‘dry’ by agitating the ground by Air Lance or ‘wet’ in conjunction with a pressure washer - this is more suitable for heavier ground i.e. Clay, etc.

Main Benefits

  • The reduction of Utility Damages whilst excavating in the Highway and Footpath during Construction works.
  • Increased productivity in comparison with conventional excavating methods in conjunction with increased safety.
  • Self contained excavating team, leading to increased site cleanliness by tipping up to 8m3 of spoil in a designated area. Leading to a better customer/public experience.
  • Excavation sizes reduced by up to a third compared to use of a mini-digger.
  • All our MTS Vacuum Excavators are fitted with Hydraulic Power arms to increase manoeuvrability and to reduce manual handling.
  • Extension tube made from P.E pipe to reduce possibility of Utility Damage and to Insulate vehicle and workforce when working in High Risk areas.

Environmental Impact

  • Minimised damage to tree or shrub roots as the vacuum is able to remove the ground between them in conjunction with the Air Lance, therefore not affecting the underground environment.
  • Less lorry movements to and from site – providing a reduction in the carbon footprint.
  • Self contained excavating team leading to increased site cleanliness, by tipping up to 8 cubic metres of spoil in a designated on site area.
  • Reduction of Grab loader time on site, minimising disruption to Customers and local traffic and significant reduction in 3rd party damages.
  • Excavation sizes reduced by up to a third compared to use of conventional methods.
