With 60 trucks, we have the largest fleet in Texas. We continually upgrade our trucks and equipment to provide superior hydro excavation services.
What is Hydro Excavation?
Hydro excavation, also referred to as hydro‐vac, vacuum excavation, hydro vacuum excavation, or soft digging, is the use of highly pressurized water to cut and liquify soil, while a high‐flow vacuum system extracts material from the dig site. The material is then deposited into the debris body or mobile storage tank. Because of its speed, safety, and accuracy, hydro excavation has become a preferred dig method.
Why Hydro Excavation?
Safety is the biggest advantage of hydro excavation, simply due to the risk involved when exposing underground utilities or excavating in areas where there are multiple or unknown utilities. The risks of line strikes, inaccurately marked lines, or damage to these utilities in congested excavation areas can be catastrophic to the project, work crews, and consumers. Unlike traditional backhoe excavation, hydro excavation is safer and more efficient.
Trucks and Equipment
T-Rex Services owns and operates the largest fleet of the most powerful hydro excavation service trucks in the industry. With a growing number of projects resulting from shale oil exploration and pipeline infrastructure in both the Eagle Ford and Permian Basin areas, we are continually upgrading our fleet, selling older hydro vacuum excavation trucks and replacing them with the newest and most advanced equipment available.
