    This kind of excavation entails the removal of the top layer of the earth's surface area. This layer consists of soil, vegetation, as well as various other debris. This type of excavation can be finished either making use of a mini excavator which is generally used for smaller jobs or tight access sites.

    Stripping excavation Girraween

    This type of excavation is also described as cut and fill. This excavation is common when working on a huge location where an excavator removes layers of soil, sand, rocks, and also other debris, and relocates it to another location with the option of it being utilised as backfilling. When all the work has been completed, the land may also be graded.


    This is done by professional excavation contractors Girraween like Dobson Excavations. It requires the combination of a rock hammer add-on, for the excavator. This is because the excavator alone might not have the power to cut through the rock as attempting to do this will ruin the excavator. Instead, we make use of the rock hammer add-on which will break the rocks into smaller pieces.


    This kind of excavation gets its name from the type of material being removed. It is a mix of dirt as well as water, which is a challenge during construction. Rather than allowing the dirt and water to impede construction, it is normally best to remove it and spread it to dry. Conversely, this material is transferred to another location.

    Basement excavator
