Hydro-Vacuum Excavation Protects Property and People While Locating, Repairing or Cleaning


Let B.R. Kreider & Son Reduce The Risk of Underground Utility Damage!

Pipes, wires and cables are a danger lurking below any ground surface – and now they can be safely exposed without the need to even lift a shovel.

The X-Kavator is B.R. Kreider & Son’s Safe Alternative

The X-Kavator Hydro-Vacuum Excavator is a non-mechanical, non-destructive technology which uses pressurized water and an industrial strength vacuum to simultaneously excavate and evacuate soil. The high-pressure water makes “clean cuts” at pinpoint locations, resulting in safe, fast, precise excavations that require less backfill, labor, restoration – and even environmental impact – than traditional excavation methods.
