Our newest drives are our Direct Drive units that range from 50kNm up to 120kNm. The advantage with our Direct Drive units over other torque drive units used for helical (screw) piling is that our drives are not made up of gearing, meaning our drives have no loss of output. Our drives transmit hydraulic energy with a 2-speed function which can be changed on the go without stopping the operation. Without gearing, the risk of mechanical failure is reduced, meaning that our drives offer 97% mechanical efficiency vs 80% in traditional planetary drives.

Our drives are typically used on tracked excavators from 13-tonnes up to 30-tonnes however we do have smaller drives that can be used on small 5-8tonne excavators where access to site is restrictive.
