ORTECO hydraulic guardrail post pile driver

The self-propelled and truck-mounted hydraulic impact hammers have been specially designed to install guardrail posts, photovoltaic cell fields and wooden posts. 

This heavier duty solution delivers higher productivity from a single user.

The ORTECO tracked drivers are capable of driving posts with greater precision due to their extra weight and maneuverability. As the pile driver can be mounted on the back of a truck, we can offer our customers a machine which is ideally suited to all types of job.

The new FX1000 for photovoltaicsmodel FX1000

The new FEX 1000 model was created to meet the need to drive foundation posts for installing photovoltaic panels under difficult conditions, off-road and with steep gradients: a situation often encountered when working on photovoltaic installations.

The characteristics of this new machine for photovoltaic installations are:

Crawler-mounted with iron chain and rubber-coated iron shoes

This solution permits the crawler to operate on difficult terrain without suffering damage and be used on asphalt and cement without damaging their surfaces. It may also be loaded on ramps in perfect safety.

Hydraulically extendable crawler

This solution has a larger crawler with a length of 2500mm and width of 200mm, with a hydraulic device that extends up to 2700mm. This solution gives the pile driver greater stability when operating on slopes. 

Other models mounted on truck crane or hydraulic excavator dipper arm are available (contact us)

Available accessories for the ORTECO pile driver
