High Reach Demolition

A Cost Effective Method For Your Project…

High Reach Demolition allows us to reduce the risk of our operatives working at height.  Wherever possible and if appropriate to do so, we recommend the use of our Ultra High Reach and High Reach Excavators as the most cost effective way to demolish a variety of structures.

Whether a building is of steel frame or reinforced concrete construction, we are able to attach crackers, pulverisers, metal cutting shears, hydraulic breakers, grapples, grabs or re-handling buckets to these highly versatile pieces of equipment.

At an operational weight of 130 tonne with a 42 metre reach, the Zaxis 870 is our largest such excavator. However at this height it can carry a shear weighing nearly 4 tonnes making the Zaxis extremely powerful, capable and adaptable.

Along with the Health and Safety benefits, this technique demonstrates excellent output and productivity over traditional ‘top down demolition’ and can often, when used with Concrete Crackers, completely negate the need to use mini excavators and percussive breakers.

All our High and Ultra High Reach Machines are equipped with an integral dust suppression system that delivers an adjustable water spray directly at the work face, reducing the need for hand held systems.

Another environmental benefit is that the exceptionally low noise emission is extremely advantageous especially when working in busy and confined inner city sites.
