Pile Buck Ads 3: Nilens Diesel Hammer Driving Sheet Piles

The third in our series of vulcanhammer.net ads for Pile Buck include this one, showing a Nilens diesel hammer driving sheet piling using a “spud” or “rail” type leader in the back.  Nilens was one of Vulcan’s more interesting adventures in pile driving equipment.  The method used is a typically European practice that has found its way to American sheet piling sites, mostly due to the Delmag hammer and its progeny.

More about European concepts of installing sheet piling are here.
