The Rockwheel line from Alpine incorporates the latest developments in hydraulic rotary cutting technology. Commonly referred to as “drumcutters”, “cutterheads”, or “rock grinders” this is a must-have attachment if you’re involved with rock excavation, trenching, mine scaling, demolition, concrete milling and more…
Rockwheels fill the niche for cutting ground too hard to rip yet not too hard enough to require heavy hammers or drilling and blasting. The Rockwheel team invented this technology over 25-years ago and has continued with product development and improvement ever since. Put our experience to work for you!
Rock Grinder heads have consistent dimensions and are perfect for Trenching & Pipeline. Trench walls are smooth and vertical and the surrounding rock mass is not disturbed. Because trench walls are vertical, regardless of depth, the volume of material excavated is minimized.
