Certified pile lifting device for piles up to 80 tonnes

Pile Lifting Device PLD100T

The Pile Lifting Device (PLD) is a certified tool which lifts and aligns the pile into the tube clamps.
The Pile Lifting Device (PLD) is a certified tool which lifts and aligns the pile into the tube clamps.

The PLD is mounted to the Vibratory Hammer’s suppressor house and connected to the pile by two chains. The Vibratory Hammer is pushed down by a hydraulic cylinder and the clamps are placed precisely around the tube. This process only takes about 1 minute. The operator can adjust the speed according to needs. This system significantly improves the efficiency of pile installation.

Power Packs can be equipped with a hydraulic function, which controls the PLD.

Working principle


  1. Hook up the pile while it is laying on the ground with shackles connected to a hole in the pile.
  2. Upend the pile to a vertical position.
  3. Lower the vibratory hammer onto the pile by sending out the cylinders.
  4. Clamp the clamps onto the pile
  5. Rise the PLD together with the vibratory hammer by retracting the cylinders. Chains/slings will lose its tension.
  6. Drive the pile into the soil.
  7. Unhook the pile.
