Equipment provides a dig rate to success 


Managing excavations for infrastructure upgrades in residential areas can be a difficult task. When it’s necessary to close streets down and limit access to homes, timelines tighten up and the stress level rises. Safety is always a critical consideration. A job in London, Ontario, required non-destructive excavation for a new street installation, but the nature of the project necessitated something more efficient than hydroexcavation. They didn’t want to have to worry about a wet excavation site, couldn’t afford to wait for hydrovac disposals and refills, and had over 100 cubic yards of material that needed to be moved (which would normally equate to about four or five disposal trips).


By utilizing advanced suction excavation from Ox Equipment, the vacuum excavation service provider was not only able to get the job done in just two days, it saved the client thousands of dollars by reusing the excavated spoils. The dig rate of advanced suction excavation reached over 4 cubic yards per hour, and provisions were made to dump on site, which meant there was no downtime, no hauling or disposal fees, and no compromise to the safety or integrity of the underground infrastructure.


The total estimated productivity time that was gained by the client was 7.7 days. The contractor was happy to have this equipment on site. 888-290-4044;
