Side Grip, Impact Hammer & Precast Rigs
AGD Rental were the first piling equipment hire company in the UK to offer pile driving rigs for rental and we have being doing so for around 15 years. We have recently invested in 4 brand new hammers and now offer a range of excavator mounted pile driving rigs using both side grip vibro and impact hammer technologies.
Pictured opposite and featured in a video below is one of our brand new SMS side grip vibros mounted on a Hyundai HX330L excavator installing 8 m long U profile sheet piles in Doncaster, South Yorkshire. The sheet piles are being used to construct a retaining wall for a railway embankment. A second photo shows it with the impact hammer mounted, back driving the piles to finished level.
The brand new Hyundai HX330L excavator with tier 4 engine can also be set up to drive steel tubular piles, precast concrete piles and wooden piles as well as sheet piles and H piles with our accelerated IHC CPE15 hydraulic impact hammer. With it's quick hitch system it is a perfect partner to switch from the SMS side grip vibro to the IHC impact hammer to back drive piles to a set or to level, as it is light and easy to transport and can be delivered to site quickly and economically.

All of our excavators can be supplied with dangle drills for pre-augering harder soils. Click on the links below to download specs on both models we have available, the larger of which is one of the most powerful on the market, with 3.1 ton metres of torque. This can also be used with larger diameter augers up to 600 mm for drilling holes for king post installations on embankments where a standard drilling rig might not be able to access site.
We have also invested in a new Pajot 1200C air hammer for back driving sheet piles in restricted access or if only a small amount of back driving is required. The photo shows it suspended from an excavator back driving sheet piles in a restricted access city centre site. Click on the link below to see a video of this air hammer in operation
