Established in 1997, HydrodigTM has become one of North America’s leading hydrovac service providers. Hydro-excavation is safer, faster, and more cost effective alternative than excavating with heavy machinery or by hand around buried infrastructure. Hydro-excavation minimizes the challenges associated with safely exposing buried utilities, pipelines, and other underground infrastructure by simultaneously utilizing high pressure water and a powerful vacuum to quickly remove soil cover. When it comes to hydro-excavating, HydrodigTM sets the standard. HydrodigTM provides efficient, safe and cost effective solutions to any excavation project.

As the hydrovac industry grew so did the size of the trucks. However, HydrodigTM recognized that the majority of excavation projects could be done with a smaller truck. HydrodigTM capitalized on this opportunity and developed a market niche with the most versatile, compact 4×4 multi-purpose hydrovac unit in the industry – built to manoeuvre around congested plant sites, difficult terrain and work year round on any jobsite – big or small. HydrodigTM gives you small truck manoeuvrability with big truck performance at a great value.

Hydrodig’sTM business model is based on providing services through our growing network of independent owner-operators. HydrodigTM provides the expertise, the trucks, and administration support. The owner-operators deliver hydrovac services by operating the equipment and developing their local markets.

To be recognized as a North American leader in providing safe, cost effective excavating solutions through our network of strategically located resources.
