Air Spade Hire

Air Spade Hire

Air Spades are increasingly requested for use in areas demanding a very special approach to root investigation, excavation and decompaction within the root systems of trees. The Air Spade is a remarkable and effective tool. It fires a stream of pressurised air into the soil at 1500 mph, the air jet displaces soil without damage to roots or services. As an added safety feature a brass nozzle avoids the potential hazard of sparks.

Since we have started Air Digging we have a proud total (as of 30.6.13) of 1840 days with no service strikes.

The Air Spade is particularly useful for root investigation and excavations or when working in areas containing services or tree roots, which could be damaged by conventional digging. We can expose roots and services without damage, so that they can be located, inspected or bypassed by services. Air Spade excavation can facilitate service runs and foundations installed within the root systems of trees.

Our Air Spade teams are also utilised to carefully remove spoil that has been tipped on the root plates of trees.

Air Spades are hired with fully trained, highly experienced Arborists who can undertake removal of excavated spoil or reinstatement of excavated areas. We have recently invested in specialist equipment to assist with the removal of arisings from Air Spade works. In addition our operatives are CSCS accredited and our foreman are CiTB SSSTS qualified. We are equally at home working on construction sites as residential properties.

We created a trench for drainage at an internationally important country house (that we are not allowed to identify). Not only did we avoid damage to the root systems of protected trees, but we uncovered unknown nine pipes and cables. The largest pipe fed the impressive fountain, so impressive is this fountain that when it was constructed it supposedly drove the Tsar mad with jealously!!

Our clients include Local Authorities, Tree Consultants, Architects, Developers, Utilities, Tree Surgeons and Homeowners across the U.K.

If you are a developer or Tree consultant and unsure how an Air Spade can assist you, please give us call. One developer has admitted if he knew about the trenching through root plates he could have had a extra plot on a development site.
