The Kenco Slab Crab is a pavement removal bucket specifically engineered to expedite the removal of asphalt, concrete roadway and bridge decking. The Slab Crab’s unique design allows the operator to have complete control over the slab during the removal and loading process. This pavement removal bucket has a flat bottom which allows the operator to remove bridge decking in tight quarters, and it allows for removal of road decking without disturbing the subbase.
The excavator operator is able to utilize a cantilever effect by tilting the Slab Crab which allows the slab to easily slide into the opening of this pavement removal bucket. The tapered opening makes it easy for the operator to acquire the slab and that same taper enables the Slab Crab to accommodate a great range of thicknesses. Once a slab is obtained, the operator can simply lay it on a flatbed, place in the back of a dump truck or stack it in a desired location. With contractors reporting that the Slab Crab increased productivity by 80% or better, its easy to see why this attachment should be in every company’s equipment arsenal.
