How does non-destructive digging work?

By combining pressurised water and a high flow rate of fast-moving air, sections of soil, sand and dirt are cleared and removed in a controlled and non-destructive flow. The slurry of soil and water is sucked through a tube into our waiting sucker truck debris tank ready to be taken offsite.


Non-destructive digging is perfect for an excavation project that requires you to work around buried utilities and underground infrastructures like sewer lines, power cables, gas lines, telecommunication and internet cables and more. Non-destructive digging has very little risk of damaging fragile utilities or important foundation under the surface, something that regular excavators would be at risk of damaging. The cost of damaging these utilities can be extremely high, you run the risk of disrupting thousands of people by damaging an underground utility.

Where can I use non-destructive digging?

Commonly used for work in the oil, gas and mining sectors, non-destructive digging is also regularly used for a variety of both domestic and civil engineering projects.  For potholing, utility locating, tight access excavation and more, non-destructive digging can provide a safe, viable alternative that doesn't sacrifice on excavating power.
