Hydro Excavation

Overley’s offers clients a professional soil removal service by means of hydro excavation.

Hydro excavation (potholing) has become a popular alternative to traditional excavation methods. Our excavators make use of a pressurized water and vacuum system to quickly and skilfully remove large amounts of soil from areas that require excavating.

This approach results in minimal interruption to nearby infrastructure. The water pressure easily cuts through tough grass to soften and vacuum up soil and expose utilities or structures being searched fo​​r, eliminating the need to make use of heavy equipment to achieve the same outcome.

Our team of experienced operators use handheld pressurized wands to skillfully maneuver around potential obstacles, ensuring that excavations are completed accurately and in a timely manner while posing little risk to people or the envi​ronment.

Hydro excavation is a quick and convenient option for excavation projects that demand accuracy and efficiency. Overley’s has the equipment and experience to assist clients to complete such excavation projects and avoid costly delays.

Our excavators utilize a suction excavator that produces powerful suction through a wide pipe which is up to 30 centimetres (1 ft) or so in diameter. The suction inlet air speed may be up to 100 metres per second (220 mph). Its construction is somewhat like a vacuum truck (gully emptier) but with a wider suction hose and a more powerful suction.

We know that our clients need to complete projects on time and without incident.  The Overley’s team is ready to assist you with your next excavation project.
