Fast, accurate, and powerful. The Vermeer PD5 Pile Driver is your solution for microgrid solar installers and medium size Large-scale solar (LSS) projects. With smooth transportation, operation, and teardown, this PD5 Pile Driver sets the standard with industry-leading efficiency, sustainability, and affordability.
Get to the point with machine integrated controls
Stay in complete control with integrated controls or an easy walk-beside control system that allows you to install with ease and confidence. With conveniently located operator controls, and a world-class function wireless remote control, this Pile Driver is engineered with intuitive operation at its core. With superior agility and near-telepathic accuracy, expect your project to be completed on time and completely hassle-free.
With an optional laser receiver and third-party GPS location finding system – the PD5 improves operating accuracy and eliminates human error in more complex jobs.
Take the PD5 everywhere
The PD5 weighs 4.7 tonnes. Compared to other pile drivers in its class, that’s as light as it gets. Manoeuvring this compact lightweight machine in and out of complex and congested job sites is easier than ever before, while damage to the job site is minimised.
But that’s not all. The PD5’s light transportation weights mean you can load up two separate machines on a single trailer for larger jobs. You can also leave the mast fully assembled even while being transported – making it easier to get to the next job.
Versatility where it counts
The Vermeer PD5 has essentially the same functions as its larger brother: PD10. But the PD5 is geared towards smaller installs, making it an ideal workhorse for the jobs that require extra attention due to uneven or dense ground. Rubber tracks and a zero degree rotating platform make for smooth handling over delicate ground surfaces, and minimising ground disturbance ideal for complex residential installs.
But being built small and versatile doesn’t come at the cost of hammer power or operational efficiency. With up to 1500 BPM, a high frequency 950 Joules hammer, and the ability to angle 10 degrees on either side of vertical, means any installation project is within reach.
