Providing Cost-Effective Solutions for Any Sized Job throughout All Excavating Areas

Licensed | Bonded | Insured | Nationally Recognized

Tom's Backhoe Service is a full-scale general excavating contractor headquartered in Brainerd, Minnesota that serves not only the Upper Midwest but the entire continental United States. From serving municipalities and major contractors to farmers and homeowners, our excavating company can deliver turnkey solutions for the excavating needs of all sectors.


Originally established in 1983, we started out as an excavating company specializing in residential septic systems, basement digging, and general earth moving services. Today, nearly four decades later, our small-time Minnesota company has evolved into a powerhouse general contractor specializing in underground utilities and large-scale excavating projects. We are nationally recognized as a leader in municipal underground utilities — water systems, sewer systems, storm water systems — and continue to hone our skills in that area while also remaining active in all other areas of excavation.
