Earth Work — Preparing the Ground for Your Next Project

Municipal | Commercial | Industrial | Residential

Tom's Backhoe Service is THE choice when it comes to moving dirt in Minnesota and throughout the surrounding states. Our knowledge, well-maintained fleet of equipment, creative problem solving, and nearly four decades of experience set us apart from other excavating contractors.

Our mobile sitework / grading crews know how to effectively prepare any site surface for new construction. Relying on our own diversified fleet of equipment — excavators, graders, dozers, scrapers, loaders, and haul trucks — we are confident that we can prepare even the largest of jobsites. To ensure precision accuracy and cost-effective work, we run GPS guided solutions in all of our vital earth moving equipment. Whether a land developer or homeowner, we can provide you with turnkey site development.
