Excavating in remote areas or narrow streets and roads can be difficult with traditional equipment. It causes damage to the surrounding area and increases traffic congestion which can be hazardous and inconvenient. When cables, utility lines or water mains need to be repaired or installed in these hard-to-reach areas, hydro excavators provide the ideal solution. The unit can be located away from the excavation site while utilizing a boom, dig tube and hoses. This nondestructive way of digging reduces damage to the surrounding landscape and eliminates traffic congestion near streets and roads.
