XCaliber Hydro-Pneumatic Excavation

KX’s XCaliber Hydro-Pneumatic Excavation process combines both high pressure water and compressed air excavation methods in a single mobile system.

Having both hydro and pneumatic excavation capabilities allow PKX to quickly complete soil and debris removal, trenching, remote digging and potholing.


  • Integrated air compressor saves costs by eliminating need for extra man power & pull-behind compressor
  • Our on-board air compressor obtains 170psi vs. 140psi from traditional pull-behind compressor, resulting in higher production
  • Independent PTO’s for air and water
  • Air knife cuts through soils without waste; enabling material to be dumped on-site
  • Soil spoils remain intact for easily backfill
  • 750k BTU burners to easily excavate frozen ground
  • Non-destructive soil and debris removal, trenching, remote digging, and potholing reaches locations where traditional excavation may not be possible
  • Push plate ejection unloading provides fast and thorough removal of debris during air excavation; eliminating safety concerns
