Bobcat Demolition in Waco – April 19, 2013

Bobcat demolition is part of the business. From time to time we have been asked to tear down houses in and around the waco area in central texas. It only takes a couple of hours to bring down a house and push it into piles ready for disposal.

Here, you can see a 1100 sq foot house that we were contracted to tear down this past week.

Even though we are paid to do it, I must admit, demolition is FUN! My dad and I often have to flip a coin to see who is going to take the house down. We like to call it.. who is going to the the first “bite”.

When you look at the bobcat t250 with the construction grade grapple attached and the pincers wide open, it looks like a big maw ready to consume whatever gets in its way.

From here, its just a matter of time until the house is down. It goes down VERY QUICKLY. This house came down in about 2 hours. We had to be very careful here because the next door neighbors fence was only 6 feet away from the outer edge of the house, and we didn’t want to damage their new car sitting in their driveway.

The rest of the time was spent loading up the trailer to be hauled away to the dump.

We had estimated that this house would be around 35-40 tones. However with all of the concrete support beams underneath and concrete steps (as seen in picture above) it actually was 44 tones. Our local land fill only charges around 29$ a ton, so it is very affordable to have the rubble disposed of.

After everything is all said and done, the land is smoothed out, and most all of the larger pieces are picked up.

All things being equal, we charge around $500 to tear down a house here in waco, tx and push it into piles for disposal. From there we have several options available for disposal ranging from us hauling it off, to loading it into bins, etc. Give us a call if this is something we can help you with in the future!

PS, I am going to try and be better at uploading our random jobs that we are hired to do from time to time. I must really apologize for the lack of updates this last year.

 

March 23, 2012 – Tear down and haul away garage apartment

This past Saturday, we tore down a 31’x20′ garage apartment. Demolished with the bobcat and grapple attachment, and then hauled away with the dump trailer. It took 3 loads totaling 8 tons of debris. The building was down in about 2 hours. (owner wanted to play with bobcat and take the first few bytes). But we got it down the rest of the way and hauled it off for hit. I wish I had of gotten more pics because the area we had to work with was very tight. There was a fence on one side and the main house on the other. Very tight and difficult to maneuver, but we got ‘er done!

Here is the owner having fun in the bobcat.. and below is the last of the dump loads, just showing off how the dump trailer works. In this video the dump trailer has 10,000 (5 tons) of wood/trash loaded and being dumped.

If you need to rent a dump trailer or have gravel brought in or around Waco, etc, please contact us.

 

Next week we are also breaking up and hauling off the slab. It is estimated to be around 13 tons. I’ll try to get better/more pics of us hauling it off.
