Excavator Mounted Vibrators

What is an excavator mounted vibrator?

Excavator Mounted Vibrators (EMVs) are specifically designed as a sheet piling attachment for excavators. They have a high power to weight ratio due to the high operating frequency and can apply an additional vertical force from the excavator to assist driving if required.

What Can an excavator mounted vibrator be used for?

This type of excavator mounted sheet pile driver is ideally suited to cohesive, granular soil conditions and can significantly decrease driving time, reduce noise and minimise potentially hazardous vibrations.

What are the benefits of excavator mounted vibrators?

A key benefit of choosing the Piletec excavator mounted sheet pile driver is the option to mount it via the VibroSafe Quick Hitch Adaptor. This purpose designed adaptor enables the piling hammer to be used with a fully automatic quick hitch coupler; a key safety feature as no operator intervention is necessary. Of course, the EMV may also be mounted via a bracket directly to the dipper arm in the traditional way.

The EMV is of a slim design to enable it to drive between adjacent upstanding piles. If required however, the clamp can be removed and refitted at 90 degrees enabling piling to be carried out close to an existing structure.

In special circumstances, this range of excavator pile driver attachment can easily be operated from a Piletec Powerpack.
