When it comes to demolition, the most direct solution may not be the best one. In built up areas, near buildings containing vibration sensitive equipment or in environmentally sensitive areas the use of heavy hydraulic breakers is limited and in some cases, impossible. In these environmentally sensitive areas the use of Drum Cutters, both traverse and longitudinal are important attachments in the range of tools at the demolition contractor’s disposal.
Drum Cutters us a low energy method of impact resulting in low noise and vibration. Production rates are relatively high compared to hydraulic breakers, particularly in softer materials. Unlike breakers, Drum Cutters grind through the concrete creating a material with a small particle size. This material can be recycled without any need for additional crushing or processing. The savings can be even higher if the broken material has to be transported offsite for recycling. For concrete containing rebar, Drum Cutters have the strength to overcome the tensile strength of the steel bar, or can be used to expose the steel bar for cutting.
Over time concrete loses much of its integrity or aesthetics through weathering or contamination by water and other substances. In these circumstances, it is necessary to remove a layer or concrete without damaging the rest of the structure and for this, the drum cutter is ideal. In situations where accuracy is vital to remove concrete to a certain depth, the Patch Planer is the ideal tool.
Cutter wheel attachments are used where large sections of concrete need to be cut into smaller sections for rapid removal from the site. They are an alternative to diamond cutting disks or diamond wire and does not require a lot of time for setup and relocation. The cutter wheel is extremely flexible, being able to work on any horizontal or vertical surface within reach of the excavator’s arm.
