We are celebrating the sale of the 6th Giken silent piler to our esteemed customer Ivor King Piling. This particular model is a Giken ECO700S super crush piler and is pictured here working at Minworth Sewage Treatment Works in Birmingham. The machine is installing 750 linear metres of sheet piles up to 11 m long in tough soil conditions.
Further involvement in the project from AGD includes the supply of all the cranes required for the job. The 70 tons IHI DCH700 crawler crane was actually the first machine ever sold by us to Ivor King and helped us to develop a relationship that has extended over 25 years.
We also hired them a 25 tons Marchetti Sherpina telescopic crawler crane and Giken CB2-5 7 tons clamp crane. The clamp crane walks along the piles following the Giken as it advances making it ideal for working in restricted access sites. In this case the restriction was working weight so the telescopic crawler crane was switched to the clamp crane as the works progressed.

Whatever your crawler crane and piling equipment requirements - call AGD. The only number you need.
