Piling – Square Pile Croppers

Category: Tag:


The Square Pile Cropper, also known as pile breakers or pile crushers, is used to cut pre-cast concrete piles ranging from 140mm-350mm wide with 4-8 rebar.

Square Pile croppers are suspended by a 4 leg chain from the excavators hitch and lowered over the pile. The square pile cropper has 4 powerful rams that cut the pile to the desired height leaving, just the re-bar behind.

This attachment gives a ‘clean cut’ and significantly reduces pile cropping time compared with the use of hydraulic hammers or other methods.

Certified chains are supplied with each pile cropper unit.

Round Pile croppers are also available.
