Tornado's hydrovac truck has solved excavation problems that have annoyed me for many years. It is amazing. Tornado's hydrovac truck has exceeded expectations by providing safe operating techniques at a lower cost than the current alternatives. One demonstration recently conducted, resulted in the hydrovac safely excavating a broken water pipeline to restore the water supply. The water pipeline had been leaking approximately 300,000 litres of water per day for over three years. The massive water line leak was left unfixed because searching for the pipeline leak with other excavation methods may have caused a bigger problem if the water line or other under-ground gas lines in the area were struck. The use of the Tornado hydrovac truck for excavation facilitated the water leak being safely and efficiently found in less than 30 minutes and allowed the repair to be completed immediately." Tornado anticipates the unique features of Tornado's line-up of hydrovac trucks and its track record of effectiveness should generate great demand for its hydrovacs in part as a result of its hot water features that make excavation in winter far more economic and safer.
