Whether it is civil engineering, building works or other construction needs that you are enquiring about, vacuum excavators are now a common fixture on most sites. The scope for vacuum excavation applications on construction sites is quite broad. Engineers are continuously finding new ways for vacuum excavation to contribute to a more effective site, leading to higher safety precautions and less risks.

Some examples for this include:

  • Foundations and deep excavations – LMD’s vacuum excavators operate effectively at depths up to 18m
  • Slit trenches
  • SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems)
  • Debris removal – LMD’s triple fan units can remove debris with the nozzle operator located at a distance of up to 150m from the truck unit.
  • This can include the removal of construction debris from the upper storeys of mid-rise apartment blocks.
  • Confined spaces
