Remove concrete deck anchors

Hi all,

I just removed part of our upper deck, including two 20-ft support posts. Each post was attached to a heavy-duty metal bracket embedded in a concrete footing. So now I have two big concrete footings sticking out of the ground. How can I remove them? They're big (18x18x12) and heavy.


Re: Remove concrete deck anchors

Unused concrete footing/anchor can be removed. Knock it with a sledge hammer or a jack hammer, just below grade, and cover with dirt.

If the footings only 12" deep then dig it out then bust it up

Re: Remove concrete deck anchors

I did the same thing, I used a sludge hammer till below grade and covered them
