Farmers and agricultural producers often undertake projects like drainage installations, irrigation placement, and buried infrastructure repairs. Traditional excavation methods can disrupt soil health and stall operations. A specialized solution is gaining popularity – hydrovac services. Hydrovac trucks utilize pressurized water and suction to excavate in a controlled, non-destructive manner ideal for agricultural settings.
Hydrovac services allow digging without introducing heavy equipment that compacts the soil. The pressurized hydro spray fractures and loosens the earth while vacuums remove the slurry. This leaves minimal residual impact or compaction once irrigation lines, drain tiles, or conduits are installed.
By eliminating blind digging, hydrovac technology reduces the risk of inadvertently damaging buried drainage systems, pipelines, or electric lines on farmland. It also prevents accidental release of odors and gases from broken manure storage tanks or silage pits.
For the installation of new irrigation components, hydrovac services excavate quickly with minimal surface disruption. Turf and planting areas remain intact, unlike with backhoes. Hydrovac also assists with trenching for drainage tile repairs while avoiding root system damage.
In livestock operations, hydrovac services enable the clean extraction of waste from confinement pits and lagoons. The powerful suction removes both liquid and solid wastes, keeping animals clean and healthy. Hydrovac trucks are self-contained for biosecure transport off-site.
Key advantages hydrovac offers in agricultural settings include:
– Preserving the biological health of soils
– Preventing compacted zones that alter drainage
– Lower risk of hitting existing buried structures
– Reduced downtime allowing faster continuation of operations
– Clean and efficient waste removal from barns and lagoons
