MotoCut Lands Stateside

MotoCut Oy from Kerava, Finland recently delivered our first unit into USA working in downtown Washington DC.

The construction site is located only 600m (@1/2 mile) from Union Station, where the client is building a new development of exclusive apartments. On the site they are installing over 800 x 350mm (14”) square concrete piles with six woven steel wires.

Sun Piling Equipment purchased a MotoCut Q400 along with a Doosan DX85 tracked excavator, and Rototilit RT30 tiltrotator to operate the cutter. Traditionally they would have cut the piles manually using petrol driven power saws, this is slow and dangerous work. Michael Jahnigen, owner of SPE wanted to introduce technology into this sector to improve the safety for his employees, offer a better quality finish to his client, and improve his onsite efficiency generating a greater return on his investment, for his company.

This is only the beginning for Motocut in USA and N. America. We are now at advanced stage of negotiations with a number of companies and hope to announce very soon our new partner(s) for N. America.

Currently the range offered MotoCut Models 2016:

Q 350 200x200mm 8″/ 350x350mm 14″

are designed to cut square concrete steel reinforced piles, however next year we plan to expand the size, dimensions and materials of the piles we can cut, this will open up the entire continent of N. America, and also expand our market presence not only in piling but, pipelines, construction and demolition also.

Exciting times ahead!
