What is Pile Cropping? Pile cropping is required when piles that have been over poured are ready to be trimmed to the required level. This supports major building works using piles, commonly made from reinforced concrete, which are driven, screwed or bored deep into the ground. HSE guidelines require all piles to be cropped, without damaging the concrete below the cut off level, to allow pile caps or pile beams to be constructed. Traditionally, piles were cropped using the jackhammer or crunching approach. However, more recently, pile cropping is performed using high-pressure water jets as this method, unlike its traditional counterparts, does not destroy or damage the integral supporting structure of the piles in any way. Pile cropping is required when piles that have been over poured are ready to be trimmed to the required level.

First, the pile is marked at the required level then the pile is sawed cut all-around 30mm deep after this, our water cropper is placed around the pile just above the saw cut. Water pressure is applied to the cropper fracturing the pile above the saw cut the fractured part of the pile is then removed leaving the rebar intact, the pile is then trimmed to the saw cut, blinding is then poured below the saw cut leaving it ready for shuttering / steel fixers Benefits of pile cropping Faster More productive Hassle-free Extend the offset distance for deeper below-grade requirements precise work with a company that provides a solid reputation for proven quality, maximum performance, reliable warranty coverage and unmatched on-the-job productivity.
