First Hydro Excavator Truck Added to Growing Fleet

First Hydro Excavator Truck Added to Growing Fleet

Locating buried pipelines and cables for underground utility projects is an important and very concise practice that our team at Comer Construction continuously strives to ensure is both safe and environmentally friendly. Recently, we took our underground utility work to the next level with the addition of our first vacuum excavation truck. The 2018 Kenworth with a GapVax HV55 Hydro Excavator is a safe, non-destructive and accurate way to safely locate buried pipelines and cables. 

Here’s how it works:
High pressure water flows around buried utilities penetrating the soil to create small soil particles that are easily removed by the vacuum.   

Comer Construction purchased the Hydro Excavator in February 2020 and has been operating it daily on existing underground utility projects. The vacuum excavation truck is also available to rent.  Give us a call for rates and availability.

New Fuel Truck Added to Growing Fleet

New Fuel Truck Added to Growing Fleet

Ever wonder how a site construction company can keep numerous pieces of heavy equipment operating efficiently at multiple job sites a day? Well, it takes top-notch crews, strict adherence to daily safety standards, and fuel… a whole lot of fuel.

And at Comer Construction, our fuel truck is a highly-relied upon piece of equipment that keeps our comprehensive site construction services running smoothly daily. That’s why we recently added a new fuel truck to our growing fleet. The new fuel truck, a 2020 Model GR713/64FR Mack, has the capacity to carry 2,500 gallons of fuel with the added bonus of an automatic transmission and air ride suspension. In addition to fuel, the Model GR713 also carries Diesel Exhaust Fluid, motor and hydraulic oils, grease and antifreeze.

Our state-certified fuel truck driver, operates the new truck delivering fuel to 10-to-12 site construction sites daily throughout the Greater Baltimore Region. Certified by the Maryland Department of Transportation, our driver holds a current Class B CDL license and has a Hazardous Materials and Tank Vehicle endorsement.
