What is Hydrovac Excavation?

The Badger Hydrovac system provides the safest form of non-destructive excavation.

Badger Hydrovac’s efficiently digs utilizing a highly pressurized water and a proprietary vacuum system to excavate or expose (daylighting) buried infrastructure.

This process uses highly pressurized water to liquefy the soil creating a slurry type mixture. Simultaneously, this mixture is extracted by the powerful Badger vacuum system into a truck mounted debris tank which can be located up to 600’ away. Our system also has the ability to provide excavation service up to 50′ deep.

Badger Hydrovacs can efficiently and precisely excavate in a variety of soil types and environmental conditions – Including: clay, hard-packed dirt, frozen soil conditions, and in remote areas or locations with limited access.

Our Badger Vacuum trucks have purpose specific on-board water heaters which are specifically engineered to provide an effective means of frozen terrain excavation.
