What We Do

Access Road/Driveway Services

Our Team at C3 Excavation provides commercial and residential services in road installation and repair. From a private driveway back to a residence to building right-of-way access for utility companies. We will install a new road or driveway, or repair a weathered one.

Hauling Services

C3 Excavation provides hauling services for your delivery needs. Limestone/gravel delivery, dirt hauling, topsoil, multch, landscape rocks, and much more! Between our fleet of big and small dump trucks, we can ensure you we have the right equipment to get your project done, big or small.

New Site Construction

(Any new residential or commercial building) Our team can provide excavating services for your new building. Digging footers, basement excavation, underground utilities, drainage systems, grading, and pad construction. We work with all trades on your project to make sure tasks are done in sync and on budget.

Lot Clearing

We at C3 Excavation have over a decade of experience in "clearing" projects. Clearing service falls under many categories from "lot clearing" - clearing spots on your property to build a house or driveway, to opening a timbered lot for a commercially zoned area for building. We provide the service from start to finish.

Concrete Services

Residential and light commercial concrete. Sidewalks, patios, driveways, pads, and retaining walls. We offer plenty of finished work also, such as stamped, brushed, and colored. We can demo and haul out the old concrete, excavate, grade, and prep for new pours. We work with the best finishers to ensure your project is of the best quality possible. Big or small we can pour it all!

System Installation

C3 Excavation is certified and qualified through the state of Ohio to take care of your next septic install. Our team will take care of your new installation or placement from start to finish. PERK tests (soil samples), project designs, installation, and landscaping after completion.

Demolition Services

Commercial and residential demolition. Any old structure that needs to be removed, structures that suffered fire damage or flood damage, and agricultural buildings. We provide experienced operators and equipment to ensure the job is completed safely without damage to other items in the area.

Drainage System Installation

Much like erosion control, the Ohio seasons can be brutal if you're not properly prepared for the weather. C3 Excavation has got you covered! We provide French drain installation, catch basin installation, culvert installation/maintenance, ditching, underground downspout installation, and road crowning. We use many types of pipes, each different to fit the type of project you're needing to be completed.


Heavy and light earthmoving services. Cutting into the side of a hill for a home or road, relocating dirt from one area to another, and removing a hill to make room for residential sites. At C3 Excavation, we have the proper equipment to get your dirt jobs completed safely, on-time, and on-budget.

Erosion Control

Living in Ohio, you must endure all four seasons. Team C3 is here to help you with any issues the Ohio seasons bring; ruts in the driveway, yard holding water, creek line eroding away, silt washouts, slip repair, and dirt washouts.


Retaining walls. Our services include the demolition of failed retaining walls, excavating sites for new installs erecting new walls, backfilling new installs, providing drainage behind walls, and final grading around walls.

Grading Services

At C3 Excavation we offer commercial and residential grading services. Final grading of new home construction sites to ensure water doesn't lay or enter the basement. Grading yards, lots, and slopes. At C3 we use the finest laser technology and many different techniques depending on the project. From grading with GPS systems on a bulldozer to hand raking to ensure your expectations are met with the finest quality we can provide. Most final grading projects get quality grass seed and straw applied for the best chance of mineral growth in the soil.

Pond Construction

Our team at C3 Excavation specializes in "custom excavation" projects. New pond construction: from clearing your lot/property, pond design, pond excavating, pond repair (leaking or damaged), pond renovation, and pond dredging. We strive to bring you the best quality and customer service we can to ensure you have the unmatched creativity shown on your property. Ponds can be beautiful, a landscaped monument on your property for years to come. Call C3 Excavation to ensure your pond is done with the creativity and intergrity you deserve.

about us


we are

With over a decade of experience operating heavy equipment, Colt has built a reputation of reliability and strong work ethic. Prior to starting up C3 Excavation, Colt worked in the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 18. Through this experience he gained countless hours of training, earning many certificates, leadership skills and knowledge for the trade. 

Colt found a talent for operating heavy equipment at a young age being a 2nd generation operator and growing up around his family’s farm. He knew he wanted to be an equipment operator after watching his father work with bulldozers and excavators in surface coal mines in Uhrichsville, OH. 

Colt and his wife, Molly, have been married 9 years and reside in New Philadelphia. Molly is a registered nurse with passion for caring for others. Together they decided to start a small, family business adventure where they could help their community with excavation projects on the weekends. 

As C3 continues to grow, Colt has the opportunity to help customers make their vision a reality. Colt and Molly are gearing up to take C3 Excavation to the next level. Contact Colt to get started on your next project!

    I cannot thank this guy enough for helping me with my farm waterline project this weekend. Over 300 feet of ditch line dug, waterline and electric line installed, 2 frost free hydrants and everything back filled and cleaned up. Colt is a great friend and is just starting up his own excavating business. “C3 Excavation”. If You need a job done, big or small, give him a call. He has over 10 years of experience operating heavy equipment and will go the extra mile to make sure the job is done right. You won’t go wrong hiring Colt Liggett for any excavating job.
