Transform the way your business works. iSeekplant can connect you with a number of suppliers in the Melbourne area providing high-tech vacuum excavators and non-destructive excavation services. Faster and less disruptive than traditional earthmoving equipment, these units help companies cut labour costs and improve productivity.
Whatever the size of project you are working on, you will find equipment to support you on our website. Partnering with a wide range of suppliers means we are able to meet an incredibly diverse array of needs and requirements, ensuring that every Melbourne contractor can find tools they need to get the job done right at iSeekplant.
Especially in heavily built-up areas, vacuum excavators provide a safe alternative to mechanical shovels, borers and drilling rigs. One application in which these units shine is in underground cable location. Traditional methods of uncovering power, water and sewerage lines can often lead to utility strikes. Even with appropriate signage, heavily built up areas can have multiple lines of overlapping utilities, increasing the risk to labourers.
Vacuum excavation is the solution. When combined with a high-pressure water jet, these machines safely ablate material such as soil, clay and crushed rock and suck it away from the site, resulting in less loose debris around the work site and faster excavation. Hand excavation is a slow, labour-intensive process that can still result in avoidable injuries or even death. Vacuum excavation is safer and as much as six times faster when working with heavy soil, so you are saving money every day on-site.
These machines offer you real flexibility in how you approach a site. Depending on the capacity of spoil tank and unit power required, these machines are either truck-mounted or towed on a trailer. These are the ideal machine for clearing away blockages in gutters and sewerage systems, removing debris from construction or demolition, and picking up miscellaneous loos material (such as during railway track re-ballasting). Wherever precision and speed is needed in excavation and earthmoving, consider the iSeekplant range of vacuum excavators, available across Melbourne.
