Are you in need of dependable digging services in Calgary? Hydrovac is a safe, non-destructive and environmentally friendly method of excavation. A hydrovac unit is a truck that removes earth by using high-pressure water (hydro), and a powerful vacuum (vac). All of our hydrovac trucks are equipped with boilers, so winter excavation is not a problem. All operators are fully trained and ticketed to accomplish all your daylighting needs.

If you work with underground utilities, you need to minimize any risk of damage. Our hydrovac equipment permits efficient digging throughout Alberta without the restrictions imposed by conventional excavation methods. Tight urban worksites are no problem for our fleet and staff.
