Maintenance and Repair

The maintenance and repair of our fleet is extremely important to all of us at LMD Vacuum Excavation.

Here at LMD, we have an extensive engineering workshop facility that is able to accommodate up to 6 suction excavators at any one time.

The workshop, which is based at our Head Office in Chesterfield is equipped with two ten-tonne overhead cranes.

With a few exceptions, LMD undertakes all of its own fleet servicing, maintenance and repairs in-house.

Each vacuum excavator receives an in-depth health check on a six-weekly cycle which is monitored very closely.

By doing these checks, they supplement the daily inspection checks undertaken by the operator before the suction excavator starts work.

It is highly important for us to do these in-depth checks on each vacuum excavator, because safety is our top priority here at LMD.

We have our very own engineers, mechanics and other workshop staff. Upon their first days here at LMD, they undergo a series of training and gain a variety of qualifications.

We do this as we want to make sure that all of our staff is safe, and all of our machines are up and running 24/7.

If you would like to know more about the maintenance of our fleet, you can give us a call on 01246 768331. Or email us at:

We look forwards to hearing from you and answering any questions that you may have.
