Pile Buck Ads 5: Vulcan 530 in Offshore Leaders

For the last of the “Pile Buck Ads,” a photo of the Vulcan 530 hammer is featured in offshore stub-type leaders.  The 530, introduced in 1978 for driving pipe piles offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, was and is used in a wide variety of pile driving projects.  In this case it’s shown to be driving concrete cylinder piles, which have become common on larger bridge projects in the last quarter century.
