5th Giken silent piler sold to Ivor King Piling
We've recently delivered the 5th new Giken silent piler to King Piling of Nuneaton, Warwickshire. Having bought their first Giken ECO700S in 2012 their fleet has now expanded to include 3 units of the latest model F301 silent piler and 2 units of the ECO700S models, 3 of which are equipped with super crush equipment. Making them the only owner of super crush pilers in the UK and the largest in Europe.
These versatile machines can install U profile sheet piles from 600-750 mm wide and Z profile sheet piles from 508-700 mm wide in all types of soil conditions. Pictured here is one of their ECO700S super crush pilers installing 12 m long PU32 sheet piles through rock with a strength of up to 90mpa near Abergavenny in south Wales for Costain. Two of these units were deployed for a period of 6 months to install a sheet piled wall in the most onerous ground conditions you could expect to find with complete success.
Movax SG45 and Pajot 1400 air hammer installing sheet piles in Leeds
Our Movax SG45 side grip vibrator mounted on 25 tons zero swing radius Hyundai excavator recently helped to overcome a very challenging contract in Leeds, West Yorkshire for JN Piling. The last minute job required some 6 m sheet piles to be installed into mudstone to form a retaining wall and there was no access for a leader rig which would have been the ideal choice for these soil conditions. We mobilised the Movax and excavator on a step frame low loader to minimise the access issues, pitched the sheets with the vibrator and then used our Pajot 1400 air hammer to drive them down to level.
All in all a job well done with a satisifed client and specialist sub-contractor.
AGD are the restricted access specialists! Call us for any crawler crane or piling equipment requirements.

Powered by the 563 kw Caterpillar C18 engine these rigs really are the most powerful in their class.
Other attachments available to work with these machines include MPU / MPZ sheet pile press. MB100 10 ton metre torque rotary head for CFA piling or pre-augering and DKS 50/100 twin rotary head for secant piling or soil mixing.
Each rig has a Bauer B-Tronic computer on board with SIM card which facilitates fast downloading of pile data and also alerts us to any faults, thus keeping downtime to a minimum.
Available for hire with experienced operators nationwide. Call us for further info or to arrange to see one of these excellent machines if you are interested in buying your next telescopic leader rig. We will be pleased to hear from you.
