In this elevator jack hole repair, we are cleaning out an elevator jack hole using our “McRail Mounted Drill Unit.” In most cases you can smell the hydraulic oil that’s leaked out over the years because there wasn’t any P.V.C. protection. It is a very messy task, but we do a fantastic job keeping the mess contained within the elevator pit and cleaning as we work through the project.

Once the load is high enough, we slide a 55 gallon D.O.T. drum under it and place the contaminated soil directly into the drum, label it, clean off the outside, and carefully hoist it out of the elevator pit to an on-site storage area. Soil recycling is offered, so we can keep this material out of our landfills and upon completion of the job, we can clean and recycle the soil and it can be used as backfill!
