Pole Holes

Badger Daylighting™ digs or excavates installation holes (of varying diameter and depth) for all types of poles including: power poles, telecom poles, traffic signals, light standards, signs, fence posts, etc.

Badger Hydrovac Crews will typically dig between 10 and 30 pole holes (24” diameter x 7’ deep) per day, depending on soil conditions.

Piling Holes

Badger digs holes for structural support foundations (varying diameter and depth). Piling holes may be exploratory (friction piles) or full depth (end-bearing piles). Badger Daylighting™ has excavated piling holes over 50’ deep, and has dug as many as 1,000 piling holes at a single facility.
