Hydrovac Truck Excavating Services: Before you dig, consider

your excavation options.


Badger Daylighting Ltd™. (“Badger”) is North America’s leading provider of non-destructive hydrovac excavation services. Badger traditionally works for contractors, engineers, and facility owners in the oil and gas, power, municipal, transportation, industrial, and commercial construction industries.

Our key technology is the Badger Hydrovac System, a truck-mounted hydrovac excavation unit that is used primarily for digging safely in areas with buried pipes and cables. Unlike traditional mechanical excavation, the Badger Hydrovac uses a pressurized water stream to liquefy the soil cover, which is then removed with a powerful vacuum system and deposited into a storage tank housed on the truck.

Badger has been designing and manufacturing the Badger Hydrovac System for more than 20 years, continually improving the safety, efficiency, and productivity of the system. Equipped with the most advanced vacuum excavation equipment, Badger then provides hydrovac services to thousands of customers across North America.Badger crews, customers, and employees provide invaluable feedback on ways to improve the technology.

Those ideas are evaluated by an in-house engineering team and the best ideas are incorporated into the design of the next generation of Badger Hydrovac System, making it safer, more reliable, easier to use, and more productive.

Today, Badger has more than 1000 hydrovac excavation trucks available to Des Moines, Iowa, available on a 24/7 basis to provide safe excavation support to customers in more than 100 US and Canadian locations and their surrounding areas.



Safety | Productivity | Service

Badger Daylighting™ Hydrovac Truck Excavating Services provides hydrovac excavation services to customers across the United States and Canada. Hydrovac excavation is a non-destructive method of excavation that uses pressurized water and a powerful vacuum to quickly and safely expose buried pipes and cables.

Engineering, Construction and Maintenance Crews all have the same objectives; getting the job done safely, on time, and under budget. However, the need to work around buried facilities poses a risk to the health and safety of workers and can negatively impact project margins.

Since 1992, Badger’s hydrovac service has helped customers accomplish their goals. The Badger Hydrovac provides a safe and efficient alternative to conventional methods of excavation. Not only does Badger’s service enhance workplace safety, but it has proven that it can help increase customer productivity by more than 300%.

Today, Badger has more than 1000 hydrovacs available on a 24/7 basis from over 100 local offices across Canada and the United States.
