Vacuum excavation is a much less invasive method of excavation and eliminates the risk of damage to underground facilities, such as pipes and electric cables. Other traditional methods such as backhoes, hand tools and mechanical digging are at a greater risk of causing damage.
This method is much more cost-effective and reduces the degree of surface restoration needed, providing a higher level of precision for your project.
The table on the right illustrates the difference between manual digging and vacuum excavation in the amount of material excavated.

Due to the higher density in both the population and infrastructure of Manchester, it is imperative that projects are completed within a given time frame to reduce traffic disruption. Vacuum excavation is an accelerated and more accurate method, ensuring that the time and money spent on your project is used efficiently. Compared to more conventional methods, such as manual digging, the employment of vacuum excavation is crucial to reduce the disruption to local businesses, homes and services.
During an excavation, the quantity of material moved during this process is dependent on its weight and consistency. Whether it’s sand or heavy soil, suction excavation is the quickest, most efficient method of choice, especially when maneuvering between cables and underground utilities. Use the chart on the left to establish the quantity of material removed during this process when compared with manual excavation within a six-hour period.
