The Vac-Ex team has taken its Air-Vac ‘Ralph’ on the road, following its display at in No Dig Down Under’s exhibition hall.
The team, who hail from Brisbane, Queensland, left Melbourne after No-Dig Down Under to travel to Bendigo and use the Air-Vac machine to expose a live water valve along a pedestrian footpath for a R&R McClure project.
The key advantages identified using the non-destructive unit are identified as a reduced site footprint, no disruption to pedestrians nor traffic management required, no disposal of spoil off site and being able to us the excavated material as backfill.
Now, the Vac-Ex team and Ralph are on route to Sydney where work will take place with Sydney Water before returning to Brisbane.
