About Us

The only Non-destructive, Precise Excavation

American Vac Services Hydroexcavator uses pressurized water to break up clay, rocks, gravel, soil and other debris or materials.  A powerful vacuum simultaneously extracts the resulting slurry of the liquified soil cover into a holding tank onboard the hydrovac, for later disposal. 

American Vac Services hydrovac can also safely dig in frozen ground, with the aid of onboard heaters; meeting your winter excavation needs.
