Hydro Excavation & Reinstatement

We’ve seen and heard it all.

  • The fountain of sewer from a pump line no-one knew was there.
  • The power going out because the cable was supposed to be somewhere else.
  • Fibre-optic cables dangling from a digger bucket.



Our specialist equipment can help with the following:

  • “Potholing” to check for services along the thrusting route.
  • Exposing known services for repair, maintenance or to lay new beside old.
  • Trenching around trees without damaging tree roots.
  • Trenching around transformers without damaging power cables.

Here are a few samples of projects we have achieved so far:


  • Excavate 200mm diameter hole to 4m depth looking for a sewer line, our competitors said it couldn’t be done.
  • Excavated 70 Pile Holes in one day for a tricky house site.
  • Excavated 45 tonne of gravel from behind a retaining wall, 80m away and 12m below the truck.
  • 50mm wide trench to a depth of 350mm for broadband lead-ins.
  • Pot Holing and Excavating for the ultra-fast broadband role out in Napier, Auckland and Christchurch.
  • Excavate large area to expose coil of power cable at a substation.
  • If everyone says it can’t be done, call the innovators at HydroVac, we like a challenge.
