About Hoedown

Our Equipment Inventory Has Grown Along with Our Owner’s Passion for His Work Tim Magnus, owner and operator of HoeDown Excavating, started his business in October 2004. With only one machine, a limited amount of tools, a friendly smile, and his own two hands, he built the company into what it is today.

After eight years and the addition of three more machines, including the smallest excavator on Vancouver Island, measuring 28 inches wide and able to fit through a standard sized doorway, HoeDown Excavating has become a well respected and trusted name in the drainage and landscaping business.

HoeDown Excavating is run with the honesty and compassion of a small family business and complies with legal code on every job. Whether you’ve got water in your basement due to poor or old perimeter drains, you need an ancient oil tank removed, a weak water line needs to be replaced, or you just want to spruce up your yard to make your neighbours jealous, Tim Magnus and his crew have got you covered!
