What can you locate?
We specialise in locating all underground cables and utilities, including copper fibre, power (LV & HV) and even gas. Contact our office for a comprehensive list.
How deep does your radar penetrate?
While this does depend on the type of surface, our radars are generally capable of penetrating about 2m deep. This is adequate for most construction projects.
Will I need to hire someone else to do the excavation work?
No. Our vacuum trucks are fully equipped to handle quick, precise hydro excavation. Giving quick access to underground cables and utilities.
There's been rain over the last few days. Will there be any issues with the radar?
Unfortunately, yes. Water or moist soil interferes with the radar and reduces the range we can penetrate. In most cases we recommend a survey to ensure there's no excessive moisture in soil before attempting to locate utilities.
Will you come to our worksite outside of Darwin?
Absolutely. Although we are based in Darwin, we service the entirety of the Northern Territory, including all rural areas.
