A new addition to our piling fleet has arrived to our Bedfordshire yard. The Delmag D19-52 Impact Hammer is a rig mounted hammer which delivers a meaty 66kNm punch.
Rig mounted impact hammers offer a significant advantage over crane suspended hammers as they do not require leg guides, therefore removing the requirement for large excavations either side of the wall to allow piles to be driven to level.
We show a photo of where we used a previous version of this hammer adjacent to a live Network Rail line. Piles were driven to level without need to disturb the railway line.4
