Excavator mounted vibrators

Excavator-mounted vibrators are used for the VIBRATORY PILE DRIVING and EXTRACTION of profiles (sheet piles, tubes, H piles, wooden piles, etc.) when constructing retaining walls, special foundations and civil engineering structures: sheet pile curtain walls, king post walls, bank protectors, etc.

The advantages of excavator-mounted vibrators

  • Their handling system allows them to pick up the profiles from the ground and install them in a single operation.
  • They do not require a hydraulic power plant
  • They can guide the profile during vibratory pile driving
  • They are compact, robust and reliable

To match a vibrator to an excavator*, simply check that the excavator is capable of supplying at least the minimum flow and pressure to drive the vibrator and, of course, that it can support the weight of the vibrator and the profile. As regards the hydraulics, the only requirement is a dual purpose line and a return leak off line connected directly to the hydraulic reservoir.

The correct choice of vibrator depends on a number of factors (length and type of profiles, nature of the terrain, etc.) we are at your disposal if you need advice.

The various different types of excavator-mounted vibrators:

Dawson high frequency vibrators

Vibration frequency from 2400 to 3000 RPM. Not only does the EMV not damage the excavator, the high frequency it uses enables it to operate in urban environments and vibration-sensitive areas.

PVE high frequency vibrators with variable moment

Vibration frequency 2300 RPM. During start up and shut down, the eccentrics are phase uncoupled to prevent any vibration when the operating frequency is below 33 Hz, making this system ideal for working in close proximity to buildings or sites that are sensitive to vibration.
