Hydro excavation (commonly referred to as hydro-vac excavation, vacuum excavation, daylighting, water excavation, slot-trenching or potholing) is a safe, non-destructive and cost-effective alternative to traditional hand or machine excavating. Hydro excavation utilizes pressurized water to break up soil while an industrial strength vacuum collects the debris in a tank. This process allows for safe and precise excavation, which results in less backfill and restoration, less labor and less environmental impact than traditional digging methods. Most importantly, hydro-excavation virtually eliminates the risk of damaging underground pipelines or utilities.

Proposed utility pole holes and service pits are often located in the municipal right-of-way, which is congested with underground infrastructure. The vacuum hydrovac is up to five times faster, less obstructive to traffic and 50 percent less expensive than hydraulic powered trenching machines or manual digging. In addition, the risk of damaging fiber-optics, gas pipelines or energized cables is virtually eliminated.

Cook Hydro-X excavators provide the natural solution to those difficult or risky excavation projects that make conventional excavation equipment inappropriate for the job. Unknown underground utility lines, extremely sensitive fiber-optic cables, or congestion due to obstructions make the Cook Hydro-X a safe, efficient alternative and the solution to your sensitive excavation jobs.
