Piling – Round Pile Croppers

The Round Pile Cropper will cut circular cast in-situ concrete piles from 300mm to 1800mm. The links are adjusted depending on the size of the pile.

Astra are he UK dealer for Taets, the worlds leading manufacturer of pile cropping equipment and our fleet holds the UKs largest range of 314 and 380 links.

Round pile croppers cut the pile to the desired height leaving just the re-bar behind and significantly reduce pile cropping time compared with the use of hydraulic hammers or other methods.

Certified chains are supplied with each Round Pile Cropper.

Note: the round pile cropper requires a distance of approx. 500mm between each pile.

Will fit excavators from 12-30 ton.

Excavator requirements: 2 way circuit.
