Why use a diesel hammer for pile driving?


There are a number of situations in which diesel is preferred over hydraulics or vibration. First of all, diesel hammers were the first to replace manual and animal labour. They have been in use for so long that you will be hard pressed to find a construction worker who does not know how to use one. Furthermore, a diesel hammer will cost significantly less than a hydraulic or vibratory one, especially now that fuel costs are low. So if you are looking to cut your procurement budget, we advise you to choose diesel.


Also, problems with hydraulic or vibratory hammers more often than not need a specialist to carry out repairs. Diesel hammers, on the other hand, can often be repaired on site, by your own staff. This ensures maximum uptime and therefore more output.

Should you choose a new or a used diesel hammer?
