8000L – 1500 HERCULES / 2500 THOR


8000L – 1500 HERCULES / 2500 THOR

The thoroughbred descendant of breakthrough technology. The 8000L hydro vacuum excavation truck produces uncompromising reliable power, performance, capability and capacity.

Hydro excavation safely excavates in situations where normal excavation machinery cannot be used. This non-destructive form of digging can remove almost any kind of surface without damaging existing infrastructures such as telecommunications, fibre optics, Telstra cables and underground power lines, as well as around and under concrete and driveways.

Common usage includes:

  • Bulk non-destructive digging / hydro excavations
  • Underground services and pipeline locations
  • Confined space excavation through over and under obstacles at distance, overhead at height or underground at basement level.
  • Mud and drill spoil recovery
  • Removal and excavation of slurries and thick sludge
  • Removal of solid and liquid waste
  • High pressure drain cleaning of storm water and sewer lines when fitted with the optional Jetter Unit (available in several capacity sizes)
