  • fits excavators from 1 - 70t

  • low noise and vibration

  • limits damage to surrounding structures

  • high production rates

  • accurate profiling of trenches

  • underwater usage

  • use of excavated material as backfill trenching

  • scrabbling

  • tunnelling

  • demolition

  • quarrying

  • scaling

The Rockwheel preferred by Sandhurst is the Webster Technologies design.

  • only two hydraulic lines (no drain line required)

  • protected motor

  • the most heavy duty design for the toughest jobs

  • made in Germany

Case studies:

  • Used in Rotherhithe tunnel to remove wall and ceiling tiles on a modified stick

  • Concrete trenching - the stabiliser wheel ensures the excavator remains stable for a clean trench excavation

  • Tunnelling for Balfour Beatty at A3 Hindhead bypass

  • Foundations for a new ride at Alton Towers - to achieve the correct profile without noise or vibration

  • In water - Falmouth dockyard jetty extensions, trenching to correct depth despite limited visibility in water
