    Greenheart pile removal

    We tried to shear 450 square greenheart but couldn’t just ran out off power 1/3 to1/2 way through like the grapple head idea, I think it would work especially if the feed is slowed right down

    Greenheart pile removal

    These piles can be 4m into the river bed a 9 tonne winch isn’t going to be much good, we used a 100 tonne crane and a vib clamp last time and it struggled if the river is navigable the whole pile has to be removed or you pay to have it marked on the maps you can just cut then off

    Have you cut greenheart with a tree shear? It makes oak look like balsa

    Flail vs Rotary Topper - Recommendations

    Offset ? Sloping ground , I would rear mount a topper less power required than a flail more stable in working position could add width to the wheelbase

    Greenheart pile removal

    They will need to be vibrated out clamp top vib and pull it’s a time consuming and expensive job, I don’t think a shear will have anywhere near the power or operator control required ,your barge will be moving we tried to shear some that we pulled out of the Thames and failed if not diver and saw will not be slow, suck out round the pile so they can kneel or stand,then cut.they made us wear chainsaw trousers last time till we proved they gave no cut protection from the saw
