The Challenger range have machine-integrated controls located on the side of the machine.
- Features a fully-functioning wireless remote control that can engage the hammer, accurately align the pile to complete verticality using the auto plumb feature and position the machine.
- Both machines can utilize an optional laser receiver or a compatible GPS system to help improve productivity by better aligning the machine to the specified pile install location.
- GPS can be either manual, semi-automatic and full autonomous solutions
The solar industry has experienced tremendous growth in the last few years. Groundwork’s range of pile drivers have been among the most widespread machines used in the field.
When you hit rock or ground that is too hard to drive through, you can fit a rock drilling attachment to the machine. Drill sizes start at 68mm up to 350mm.
Both pile drivers are powered by a Yanmar 48 horsepower (36,5 kW) Tier 4 or 5 diesel engine. With a two speed travel motor the operator can quickly travel speed of 4 km/h.
With the hydraulic hammer pull-down, the operator will install pile or screws faster than before.
Both machines will be available now.
