Dawson Impact Hammers
Hydraulic Impact Hammers
Dawson hydraulic impact hammers are double-acting, high-productivity hammers ideally suited to steel sheet piles, I-sections and tube piles. They range in size from 1-tonne through to 6.5-tonne ram weight (12kN.m-100kN.m), and utilize a short, accelerated down-stroke to maximize energy and speed in a relatively short hammer with low overall weight. These features enable Dawson hydraulic impact hammers to be mounted on excavators, mounted on leaders, or to be used free-hanging.
Dawson offers a ‘purpose-built’ sheet pile setup, with wide anvil maximising area of impact and offset leg guides to ensure energy delivered over the centroid of the sheet pile, ensuring rapid installation with minimum damage to the section.
Dawson hammers are fully mechanical, and can be ‘marinised’ for underwater piling applications.
- Industry leading, robust and simple, electronic control system that constantly monitors the drop weight position. This constant monitoring allows the switching timing on the main hydraulic spool to be trended to continually optimise hammer performance throughout varying piling conditions.
- Hard driving with pile recoiling
- Soft driving with a running pile
- Cold hydraulic oil on start up
- Raking piles
