Trimming Caisson Walls with Rockwheel Concrete Grinding Attachments

App concrete secant1Caisson walls are composed of vertically drilled, intersecting reinforced concrete piles constructed for ground support during excavation and construction activities, especially in urban areas where work is being done close to existing structures. 

The resulting vertical face is a series of rounded humps which often must be ground smooth for the next phase of the job.  

Alpine’s hydraulic rotary concrete grinding attachment (RockWheel series) is an ideal tool for rapid and precise concrete trimming. 

The continuous milling action of the carbide tipped cutting drums leaves a smooth surface and cuts with minimal vibrations so the remaining concrete is not damaged.
