Here at Masterhitch Europe Ltd we create the best bespoke excavator attachments to fit your machines. The Masterhitch pile cropper is a popular must-have digger attachment that all construction fleets should have. Here’s why…
What is a pile and what is the purpose of one?
Piles can be made of various materials including wood, concrete or steel, and are recognised as cylindrical poles. They are pushed into the ground, and a structure is built on top of them. They are designed to support buildings in areas that have weak soil. When piles are placed in the ground, they are often topped with a cap that is made of concrete to keep the group of piles together and sturdy.
How does the Pile Cropper work?
If you work within the construction industry, you’ll likely have come across the pile cropper already. The design of the attachment varies from company to company. You may have seen designs for a square pile cropper, as well as a round pile cropper which will enable you to safely and efficiently cut concrete piles to your required size. Here at Masterhitch our digger attachment is complete with four jaws, resulting in better grip for the operator.
The Masterhitch pile cropper will fit over concrete piles up to 600mm in diameter. It is designed to break the concrete on a pile to gain access to the reinforcement bars inside. To view the design in detail, take a look at our Youtube channel.
If you’re open minded, the attachment could also be used for other purposes, due to the increased grip. The operator could also complete other tasks such as picking up materials and even for demolition. This will reduce the need for multiple digger attachments on site.
An alternative to the pile cropper is a breaker attachment, although both accessories will produce the same outcome.
Which machine sizes will it fit?
We have made the pile cropper to fit 14 and 20 tonne excavators. It can fit larger excavators as it hangs from a shackle point rather than a hitch. If you have any requirements beyond our standard sizes, please contact us as we can bespoke manufacture the attachment to suit your needs.
