What is Suction Excavation?

Suction excavation is a new solution to traditional excavation problems. Suction excavation utilizes high powered fans to safely excavate up to 141 feet (43 meters) of depth depending on the configuration. First a small surface area hole of about 10 in (250 mm), this may vary depending on ground conditions, is created. Then the suction excavator hose removes below surface materials. Compressed air is used to fracture the ground in order for the suction excavator to remove the material safely. No manual hand tooling is used in the process.i.
