THE SHEET PILE DRIVER FROM NPK
NPK's excavator-mounted sheet pile driver is
a modified design of industry leading plate
compactors, adapted to direct powerful
vibration forces downward, optimizing driving
of sheet pile. Durable, shock-absorbing rubber
mounts protect the excavator's boom and stick
from vibration and shock loading. The mobility
and maneuverability of NPK sheeting drivers
permit operation in many areas previously
inaccessible: under low clearance obstructions
(bridges, etc.), around bridge piers, and next
to walls. This makes picking up, moving and
aligning the sheeting easy and stress-free
when driving and/or extracting. Designed for
excavators from 16,000 lbs. to 100,000 lbs.
Key Features and Benefits
• 180° free rotation allows precise alignment and positioning of the sheet
pile without having to reposition the machine. When not needed the swivel
can be locked into place; either parallel or perpendicular to the boom.
• Dedicated top mounting brackets, designed to OEM bucket specifications,
provide a full range of motion when picking up the sheeting from the
• Simple operation means that any excavator operator can easily drive and
• Clamp fitted with a hydraulic cylinder lock to prevent slippage.
• Shock-absorbing rubber mounts isolate vibration and reduce noise.
• Heavy duty, high efficiency gear motor.
• Integrated flow control and pressure relieving valves protect from
excessive flow and pressure.
• Oil splash lubrication eliminates routine greasing of the bearing.
