Piletec extends attachment range

Specialist foundation and piling equipment supplier Piletec has added two new excavator mounted vibrators (EMV) to its piling attachment range to help contractors save time and reduce costs.

The E5FM and E7FM are compatible with all of Piletec’s associated equipment including its Vibro Safe quick hitch adapter, pre-auger, trench sheets and Larssen sheet piles – up to 10m in length and any profile.

The E5FM is a piling hammer with a driving force of 20t, while the E7FM is a low frequency model.

According to Piletec, the excavator-mounted attachment is a cost efficient way of driving sheet piles and tubes.

“Our decision to increase the range to include more powerful EMVs was in response to our customers needing to drive longer sheet piles in stiff ground conditions,” said Piletec director Bill Gorton. “This can only be achieved by using larger 35 to 40t excavators and therefore a more powerful EMV to accommodate the larger excavator. This combination of larger excavator and EMV can also save the contractor the cost of cranes and leader rigs, the traditional way to drive or extract longer sheet piles.”

The extended EMV range also includes a new gooseneck extension which is mounted on the jib of the excavator to extend the reach and height of the excavator. According to Gorton, this attachment is ideally suited to drive longer piles in soft ground conditions.
