High Reach Demolition


In the year 2010, the European Demolition Association published the EDA High Reach Guidelines in 8 languages, and since then it has been translated into even more languages.

Such guidelines emerged from the need for a reference document for high-reach demolition projects, suitable equipment and best operating techniques.

In this respect, this document aimed to catalogue the best operational techniques which had been gathered by the primary European firms through years of experience in the field and make them available for those operators in the sector who intended to use this type of excavator.

Thus, this document provides a comprehensive overview of high range demolition and outlines appropriate demolition techniques and methods for construction contractors.


On this page, you can find the most important contents of the guide:

General concepts

Planning the high reach operation

Working with high reach equipment

Training of personnel
