Benefits of Air Excavation

Advantages of Excavating with AirSpade has become a preferred method for digging on many jobs ranging from utility work to advanced tree care. Excavating with the AirSpade offers a number of advantages over conventional tools such as picks, shovels, and backhoes, including:

Two to three times faster than hand excavation.
Less worker fatigue than a pick or shovel.
Eliminates sharp metal edges as featured on picks, digging blades, or buckets.
Harmless to buried, solid objects such as utility lines, telecommunication cables, tree roots, hazardous waste containers, or military ordnance.
Excavates some rocky soils where a shovel is difficult to use.
Breaks soil into small particles that are ideal for re-compaction.
Powered by common, tow-behind air compressors.
Soil is dislodged and driven airborne by AirSpade, then vacuumed directly into the air vacuum container.
Non-contact, non-striking digging methodology will not harm sensitive underground objects or infrastructure.
Ideal for small diameter, deep excavation (potholing) where a hand shovel or backhoe bucket cannot fit or reach.
Features high-head performance that is particularly effective with heavy sludge and liquids.
