Tree Root Cutting

Roots can be removed using standard high-pressure water jetting units but in order to restore the full bore of a system, specialist jetting heads and attachments are required. Flail jets have chains at the rear, which spin around, chopping at the roots as they go, and there are attachments that have forward facing cutting heads that rotate with the pressure of water being pumped through them.

There are also specialist high pressure water jetting cutting rigs that are so powerful they will cut out concrete, masonry and intruding pipe work from a system. The same bit of kit can be used for root cutting in pipe work from 150mm in diameter and above, they are particularly handy for cutting through stubborn tap roots.
