Rock Sawing, Hammers & Grinders
DIG IT Civil has an extensive range of rock saws, hammers and grinders to suit your projects needs.
Rock saws deliver an efficient, accurate solution to excavate rock for structural foundations built on challenging materials. They are ideal as they have low noise levels and reduced vibration making them ideal for demolition projects that require minimal noise from council. They are also recommended for projects that are in older style properties, close proximity to residents, workers, vehicles, hospitals and the local community as they provide minimal disturbance.
DIG IT operators are qualified and highly experienced in using rock saw, hammer and grinder attachments. The precision of our machines means there is minimal damage to the property, while low noise levels mean you can continue excavation within DA-approved hours if required.

- Sensitive sites with very low vibration tolerance, such as heritage sites or hospitals
- Digging service trenches and pits to achieve a uniform shape and depth
- Cutting through hard rock with precision, to reduce machine time and over excavation, resulting in less backfilling or concrete
