D-20 Rockwheel Trenching in Bradford

The Project

The project was to excavate sandstone to accomadate larger underground fuel tanks at a service station in Bradford, The location was close to residential properties and a busy main road so minimum noise and low vibration was very important, the D-20 Rockwheel was the perfect Rockwheel for the job.

The Solution

A D-20 Rockwheel was used with T1 Picks mounted via a quick hitch adapter bracket to a Hitachi 210 LC excavator, this ensured a very efficient cutting method of the sandstone working at much lower vibration and noise levels to a conventional hammer technique.



Using the Rockwheel gave the required finish for the supporting frame required for the sheet piles, it was also much quieter, which was important in a built up area. (Toureen Mangen Representative).
