On-machine control - Walk-beside, machine-integrated controls allow the operator to control machine functions, including engagement of hammer, pile placement and ground drive. Operators can remain off the machine and walk beside it, with conveniently placed controls to allow for intuitive operation and operator comfort.
Transportation ease - Teardown and transporting is convenient with a rotating platform and a mast that can stay fully assembled and stow parallel with the tracks, making it more convenient for the entire crew to move to the next job.
Keep it light - The PD5 weighs in at 10,350 lb (4694.7 kg), which allows for transporting up to two pile drivers on select trailers, and less potential damage to jobsites, all while helping increase efficiency of setup and teardown with a lightweight design.
Compact design - A small machine with a width of 12.5’ (3.8 m), a height of 19.6’ (6 m) and a 15’ (4.6 m) mast is ideal for jobsites with less space, or for multiple smaller jobs that require continual transportation of the machine. Quickly move around the jobsite and continue efficiency of installations helping reduce time spent on setup, teardown and transportation.
Move along - With a forward ground drive speed of 2.6 mph (3.8 km/h), the PD5 moves quickly from pile to pile with less time wasted traveling and more time installing piles - keeping your installation efficiently moving forward.
Maintain accuracy - The PD5 has an optional laser receiver and an optional compatible third-party GPS system that can provide visual input to the operator, which can help improve productivity and alignment of the machine to the specified pile location.
