Excavation

Applications

The word "excavation" covers a wide range of operations such as; trenches, basements, carparks, footings, swimming pools. The scale varies from multi-storey building sites to single residence dwellings.

The material to be excavated varies widely with location - from soil to very hard rock.

Why use a rocksaw?

  • lower noise levels on site and surroundings
  • does not cause cracking to existing property
  • does not fracture the rock around
  • saw cuts prevent vibrations travelling through solid rock

Under houses,  and other confined spaces

Access to backyards and underhouse spaces can be limited to less than 1m, which means that only mini excavators can be used. Mini excavators can often lack the power to effectively hammer through hard rock or concretehammering can cause damage through vibration to existing structures.

Excavator rocksaws provide a solution. With a mini excavator or robot, the rock can be cut and then more easily broken and removed.

The finished wall is smooth and can even be used to feature the grain of the rock. The rock can be reused for site works in the form of landscaping material - for example retaining walls and stairways.

Diamond rocksaws on mini-excavators can be used for cutting reinforced concrete for demolition within buildings, or swimming pool
