4 units latest model RTG telescopic leader rigs added to fleet
We have invested heavily in new equipment this year, including 4 units of the very latest model RTG telescopic leader rigs. These machines sport some excellent features including the patented ACS (automatic coupling system) which reduces time considerably when switching from attachments, i.e. vibro to rotary head. It also avoids the need for working at height.
Each of the three models we have purchased (RG16T, RG19T and RG21T) are equipped with the largest vibro available, the MR150AVN, This 150 tons vibro has the ability to change mode according to the soil conditions. 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.

Brand new Llamada P105TT en route to GM Piling
Brand new Llamada P105TT CFA piling rig on its way from the factory in Barcelona, Spain to GM Piling in Norfolk. This machine can drill 1000 mm diameter piles to 24 m depth in a single stroke without any extension. The design of the star auger cleaner assists this as no drilling depth is lost.

Giken GRB system installs piles at Hampstead Ponds
A Giken GRB system has just sucessfully installed a 200 linear metre wall of 7 m long U profile sheet piles at Highgate no 1 pond, on Hampstead Heath, Camden, London for CMP-Barker. The equipment comprised a brand new Giken F301 silent piler recently supplied to Ivor King Piling for installing the piles silently and without vibration, along with a Giken CB2-5, 7 tons clamp crane for pitching the piles. In addition a Giken TB3 pile runner was used to deliver the piles to the clamp crane in severely restricted access. We also supplied a 50 tons telescopic crawler crane for unloading piles from delivery lorries and for loading them on to the pile runner. Once the piles were installed the Giken F301 then "walked back" to the start of the pile line using a Giken AM78 walk back device. As you can see from the photos there was very little space, issues with trees and no opportunity to use a conventional crane to distribute and pitch the piles making the Giken GRB system eminently suitable for the job.
