With our extensive line of equipment and qualified personnel, we can get the job done no matter how tough or unique the conditions are! Our vacuum extractors can expose highly congested areas without damaging any sensitive buried utilities. With our horizontal directional drilling machines, we can make the impossible possible. Whether it’s a beautifully landscaped yard or a concrete parking lot, we can drill and install utilities for up to ¼ mile without disturbing the surface of the ground.
By utilizing our line of small to large plows, we can perform utility installations (gas, phone, water, and electric) in 1/3 of the time it would take a trencher, even in sandy soils. Plus, plowing installations have no backfill or ditch to settle out after a rain. If open trenches must be cut, we have a full line of trenchers available to handle any size of the job.

DJ Utter – Maintenance Supervisor, State of Nebraska Building Division
“I was very impressed by Hersh Digging from Kenesaw. They reacted to our problem quickly, confronted the project head on, and went above and beyond to ensure the safety of our clients, the staff, and their workers. Not many Contractors could mobilize onto a specialized facility like this, navigate blindly through underground existing and/or abandoned utilities, and flawlessly install a new municipal like gas system while passing fire marshal inspections, and gas quality analyst’s inspections the first time. Hersh took great pride in giving the state of Nebraska a quality product, with minimal intrusion into the day to day activity on this facility. Many of the utilities Hersh navigated over, around, and behind, were unable to be located.”
