HDD trenchless boring

HDD Trenchless Boring

HDD Cactus operates four directional boring rigs with various sizing capabilities. With a full inventory of HDPE conduit and fusing capabilities, we can drill and install utility lines for a variety of applications. Our crews are knowledgeable about drilling (hammering) in rock as well as advancing holes through the easier ground conditions.

Aerial Installation

Aerial Installation

In spite of the ‘HDD’ in our name, we realize that sometimes the best and most economical way to install utility lines is via overhead lines. We have a crew devoted to that purpose and can help you on your next aerial project.



HDD Cactus owns a full range of excavation equipment and employs seasoned operators on its crews. These crews are experienced with conduit installation of various types and bury in place utilities. We offer trenching equipment and utility ‘plows’ to get the job done. Please call us on your next project.

Badger Daylighting

The Badger Hydrovac™ system provides the safest form of non-destructive excavation.

Our Hydrovac digs efficiently utilizing a highly pressurized water and a proprietary vacuum system to excavate or expose (daylighting) buried infrastructure.

This process uses highly pressurized water to liquefy the soil creating a slurry type mixture. Simultaneously, this mixture is extracted by the powerful Badger vacuum system into a truck mounted debris tank which can be located up to 600’ away. Our system also has the ability to provide excavation service up to 50′ deep.

Badger Hydrovac’s can efficiently and precisely excavate in a variety of soil types and environmental conditions – Including: clay, hard-packed dirt, frozen soil conditions, and in remote areas or locations with limited access.
