The ORTECO 1000 FEX pile driver is a new machine created to meet the need to drive posts under difficult conditions, off-road and with steep gradients: a situation often encountered when working on photovoltaic installations.
The particular features of the new machine 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.
We adopted a crawler larger, length mm 2.500 and width 200 mm, with a hydraulic device can be enlarged up to mm.2700.
This solution gives to the pile driver greater stability in the work pending.
The 1000 FEX pile driver may be fitted with:
HYDRAULIC ROTOR, for using down-the-hole-hammers on rock or for “screwing in” poles into the ground with a volute
HYDRAULIC DRILL for excavations of various different diameters
EXTRACTOR with dual action for extracting poorly driven or incorrectly positioned poles
LASER laser receiver for stopping the hammer stroke at the required level
VERTICALITY CONTROL manual macro control of verticality
The result is a truly complete, dependable, versatile, compact machine. We’re satisfied with the results and plan to produce a large number of machines of this type in the near future.
