New Quad XXL from National Pile Croppers


The Quad XXL cropper from National Pile Croppers have found a niche on HS2, a high-speed railway line under construction that will link Britain’s major cities, where a variety of contractors and civil engineering companies have used them to great success.
With a project as big and as demanding as HS2, there has arisen a requirement for even larger more powerful pile croppers.

“We have a range of Quad croppers that cover virtually any requirement, with our Quad XL 1000 cropper being designed for piles up to 1,050 mm in diameter,” said Lee Aston, NPC director. “However, on some parts of HS2, the Quad XL although effective, needed to be super-sized to make it even more productive.”

The new Quad XXL is a true cropping behemoth being designed and developed to deal with piles of between 900 and 1,200 mm in size. Weighing in at a mighty 3,675 kg, it is best used on an excavator of at least 31 t in weight.

“Although big, the new Quad XXL is still easy to use, and our experienced support staff are at hand from the initial order to the installation on site to make sure that customers get what they pay for. Operation is still simple, with the cropper being lowered to the ideal height, with the jaws then being closed until pile sections ‘pop’ free. The broken pile section then can be easily removed for recycling to a dumper or a specified area,” added Mr. Lee. “The feedback we’ve received has been beyond our expectations. Our customers seem to want more and more of the Quad XXL as the targets and deadlines shorten on HS2. Despite its size and power, the new Quad XXL is as efficient as the other members of the Quad range, delivering an effective solution wherever it has been used.”

The new Quad XXL from National Pile Croppers will be introduced globally in the coming months.

High Speed 2 (HS2) is the UK’s largest infrastructure investment project. 
It will link 8 of Britain’s biggest cities, reduce journey times and increase capacity on the network. Every hour, as many as 18 trains will run from London to Birmingham in the first phase, travelling as fast as 360 km/h.
