Features & Benefits

Take control

With a wireless remote, crews can operate the PD5R and gain visibility around the machine, while controlling most machine functions like hammer engagement, pile accuracy, auto plumb and ground drive, all while remaining out of an operator’s seat during installation.

Efficient setup and teardown

Setup and teardown are quick and convenient with a rotating platform and a mast that can stay fully assembled and stow parallel with the tracks, making it convenient for the entire crew to move to the next job. 

Keep it light

The PD5R weighs in at 10,300 lb (4672 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.

Transportation ease

A small machine with a transport width of 84.6" (214.9 cm), a transport height of 98.4” (249.9 cm) and a transport length of 11.6’ (3.5 m) allows more than one machine to be hauled on certain trailers.

Move along

With a forward ground drive speed of 2.6 mph (4.18 km/h), move from pile to pile quickly with less time spent traveling and more time installing piles, helping to keep your installation efficiently moving forward.

Maintain accuracy

An optional laser receiver and an optional compatible third-party GPS system can provide visual input to the operator and input to the machine control system to help improve productivity and alignment of the machine to the specified pile location.
