    This type of excavation includes the removal of the top layer of the earth's surface area. This layer includes dirt, vegetation, and various other debris. This type of excavation can be completed either using a mini excavator which is generally used for smaller jobs or tight access sites.

    Stripping excavation Secret Harbour

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


    This is done by specialist excavation contractors Secret Harbour like Dobson Excavations. It calls for the combination of a rock hammer attachment, for the excavator. This is due to the fact that the excavator alone may not have the power to cut through the rock as trying to do this will wreck the excavator. Instead, we utilise the rock hammer attachment which will break the rocks into smaller pieces.


    This type of excavation gets its name from the type of material being removed. It is a mix of dirt and water, which is a challenge throughout construction. Instead of enabling the dirt and water to impede construction, it is generally best to remove it and spread it to dry. Alternatively, this material is transferred to another location.
