Which pile driving crane is best for your job?
As the name implies, a pile driving crane is used to drive piles into the ground. These piles create a high capacity to carry foundations. Roughly speaking, there are three ways to go about: one can use a vibratory hammer, a diesel or a hydraulic one. If you are looking into buying a crane, then the first question you will need to answer is: which one is best for my job?
Are you looking for economically priced pile driving cranes? Then choose a diesel powered one. At Piledrivershop.com we regularly sell cranes from renowned manufacturers such as ICE or HERA.
If you are looking for more environmentally friendly pile driving cranes, then go for hydraulic or vibratory machines. A vibratory crane loosens the ground by applying vibration, thus driving the piles deeper into the soil. High quality brands we sell at Piledrivershop.com include Liebherr and ETEC. Note that a vibratory machine is less suitable for work in densely populated areas, as they might cause damage to surrounding buildings. In these cases, we advise that you opt for hydraulically powered pile driving cranes, such as Kobelco or Juntann.
