Mr Cropper's 4 JAW Cropper pile trimming, pile breaking and pile cropping contiguous piles

User-Friendly Pile Breakers, No Specialised Training Needed




4JAW Cropper attachment

The Cropper attaches to the external hydraulic lines of your excavator via quick release fittings that are easy to attach and remove.


The Cropper hangs from the excavator lifting point via chains or a lifting frame. 


Straight reinforcement bars are required and we recommend a saw cut is installed at cut-off level to prevent fractures below.

For circular piles, we recommend debonding is used to sleeve the reinforcement bars. This will (amongst other things) reduce time, reduce dust, and result in an incredibly clean finish without any manual trimming required at cut-off level. 

Pile Preparation


Lower the Cropper over the pile up to 500mm and operate the cropper blades until the pile section 'pops' free (as pictured). 

 The broken pile section can then be lifted to a dumper or disposal area. 

Continue this process working downwards from the top of the pile until the cut-off level is reached. Note that at least 300mm should be left for the last 'bite'.



De-bonded piles

Lower the Cropper over the top of the pile up to 300mm, always cropping from the top down. 


Operate the Cropper until the blades penetrate or 'crunch' the pile, forming a horizontal break through the concrete.


Release the Cropper blades from the pile and continue this process in up to 300mm increments down to cut-off level. 


Bonded piles

Following these mthods it is possible to trim up to 200 piles per day!


The only labour required for the cropper method is the Cropper operator and Banksman to guide the Cropper onto the piles. 

Away you go!


The result is an unbelievable finish with no manual trimming required!




Our Pile Breakers eliminate many of the health and safety issues associated with traditional methods.


Risk of vibratory disorders such as HAVS (hand-arm vibration syndrome) are drastically reduced and the need for hand held vibratory tools is virtually eliminated.


Use of Pile Breakers significantly reduces dust and noise, and allows workers to remain a safe distance from the bulk pile breaking works. 



Lifting Frame & Chain Certification

Mr Cropper ensure that any lifting frame and chains that are provided with our Croppers are certified by a NATA accredited company.

On hire and Off hire Reports

Maintenance reports are carried out prior to, and after every hire to check that all aspects of the Cropper are in proper working condition.

NDT testing

NDT tests and hydraulic proof testing are carried out annually or when deemed necessary by our engineers.




Keep a safe exclusion zone and keep clear of all moving components whilst cropping

Check all bolts, blades, chains, hydraulic hoses, grease nipples and fittings before use. 

Wear appropriate PPE

Ensure operators familiarise themselves with the appropriate operation manual

Use a Banksman

Ensure the Banksman and Operator maintain verbal contact and use visual hand signals when operating the Cropper

For circular piles, we recommend debonding is used to sleeve the reinforcement bars. This will (amongst other things) reduce time, reduce dust, and result in an incredibly clean finish without any manual trimming required at cut-off level. 

The separation between concrete and reinforcement allows the Cropper to form a clean break through the pile and lift the excess concrete in one section!
