Suction excavator saves time, money on job site


Recently Ox OnSite operating out of Jacksonville, Florida, was exposing buried infrastructure at a plant where the nearest disposal facility was over an hour away. This isn’t generally a problem when locating underground utilities unless you need to dig quantities well over the storage capacity of your equipment, and this particular project had over 100 cubic yards to move.


They used the MTS Dino 4.5 Advanced Suction Excavator from Ox Equipment. With more and more regions across the U.S. mandating that nondestructive excavation and utility daylighting be done without the use of water, digging dry and suction excavation is becoming more popular. 

RESULT This big job was completed days ahead of schedule because the excavated materials were dry and able to be stored on site and reused as backfill. This allowed Ox OnSite to maximize productivity and save its client thousands of dollars. 888-290-4044;
