A SLAB REMOVAL BUCKET FOR BRIDGE DECK AND CONCRETE PAVEMENT REMOVAL PROJECTS.
Slab Crab buckets are the solution for the removal of concrete slabs. They range in bucket widths from 24 inch to 60 inch. The Slab Crab models are manufactured to process slabs ranging from 4″ to 20″ thick and will fit 20,000 – 150,000 pound excavators and backhoes. Available as either a direct pin-on or with the Kenco Wedgebolt Coupler.
The concrete pavement is simply saw cut into manageable pieces. Size of each slab depends on the lifting capability of the machine that the Slab Crab is being used on. Once the pavement has been cut, the slab removal process quickly becomes a one man job. Just slide the teeth of the Slab Crab under the pavement and tilt up. This action will cause the pavement to break off at the cut. The slab can now be lifted and placed directly onto the bed of a waiting truck or stacked out of the way. There is no debris cleanup and the subbase doesn’t get damaged.
When the job requires slab removal, the Slab Crab is the superior choice.
The Slab Crab comes in widths of 24 to 60 inches and processes slabs up to 20″ thick. The Slab Crab is designed and constructed using high-yield, abrasive-resistant alloy steels for exceptional durability… even on the toughest demolition jobs.
Slab Crab Reviews
We use the Slab Crab 3 to 4 times a year removing bridge decks. Many bridge removals are made over water or wetlands that cannot have concrete dropped in them. We saw the decks and remove the concrete with the Slab Crab Bucket. Most of the time we are able to give the slabs to a landowner. Previously we demolished decks with a wrecking ball, cut the rebar with torches, hauled the rebar off to a scrap yard and then had concrete to dispose of. The Slab Crab greatly reduces labor and disposal costs.
