SUCTION EXCAVATION

WORLD CLASS TECHNOLOGY

Offering the latest in safe digging technology, and proven in use throughout Europe and around the world, our suction excavation (SE) trucks are the first units from Ox Equipment and MTS to be delivered to the North American market. A complementary service to hydro vac excavation, suction excavation utilizes the latest air flow technology to safely remove, excavate, and extract material without using water. The dry material flows through the boom-mounted dig tube and into a large onboard debris storage bin. The operator can then move the material for controlled disposal – on site for reuse or at an offsite facility for reclamation.

WHAT IS SUCTION EXCAVATION?

Suction excavation is the process by which high pressure air is used to break up dirt and material. This material is then vacuumed up into a truck via hose and can be disposed of either on site or a designated disposal site. This process has given us the capability to leave the materials on site since, for this specific method, we have removed the use of water.
