The Ultimate Guide to Vacuum Excavation


The free resource for project planners, designers and managers who excavate for infrastructure installation, to locate existing utilities, or use suction equipment for cleaning and spill removal.


Vacuum excavators have come of age. Different size-reduction tools and valve exerciser attachments give the vacuum excavator greater versatility than ever seen before.  Owners of these units have discovered their range outside of standard potholing and cleaning jobs, and contractors are finding new uses for vacuum excavators every day in order to save time and labour costs.

This e-guide details some of the many applications vacuum excavators are being utilised for and key considerations when purchasing equipment.

This valuable e-guide is able to be distributed as a free resource thanks to the support of Sponsors Ditch Witch Australia and Vermeer.
