PILING HAMMER & PLANT HIRE
The Rothen Group have a range of machines and attachments to suit your requirements from piling hammers, post driver and mini diggers through to clam shell grabs and long reach arms.
Our range a machines can sit both on or off our floating craft. These include micro diggers, mini diggers and up to 8 tonne diggers with/without canopies for ease of moving under low bridges on the inland waterways. The lightweight machines are ideally suited for towpath works where low impact is integral to Canal and River Trusts weight restrictions. All of these machines are fitted with the latest LOLER technology including drop control valves, are marine approved and run on bio-oil.
Long reach arms have been built for all our machines to broaden their uses to long reach dredging etc.
The variety of attachments The Rothen Group can offer includes reed rakes, clam shell grabs, coping stone lifters through to specialist piling hammers, breakers and post drivers. These are all highly adaptable to suit your specific requirements.
Our bespoke range of piling hammers is available from our sister company RG Piling Hammers.

A range of Kubota zero tail swing excavators including 850kgs to 2.5tonne mini diggers up to 5 and 8 tonne midi diggers. Specially designed roll over cages for low access applications.
Marine ready bio-oil, LOLER certified with machines fitted with drop control valves to ensure safe use for lifting operations such as piling, nicospan works etc. Can take all type of attachments.
Dawson Construction Excavator Mounted Vibrators (EMVs) work in place of an excavator bucket to both drive and extract piles. These vibratory hammers form a productive and cost effective due piling rig that works around a standard excavator.
Compact, robust and reliable - no electrics
Simple and fast attachment to the excavator
Minimal height to maximise the pile length
Slim design to drive single sheet piles
High power to weight ratio
Universal joint suspension for easy alignment of piles
Extremely low vibration transmitted to the excavator
Automatic hydraulic clamp operation
Flexibility in application
Flow regulator prevents excessive oil supply to vibrator
Heavy saddles available for crane suspended models
The EMV70 will drive trench sheets, short lengths of steel piles, wooden posts, tubes and plastic piles, working off 5–12 tonne excavators. In between the EMV70 and EMV300 hammers, the EMV220 is only 5kg heavier than the smaller EMV70. We would recommend it for jobs limited by the excavator size, perhaps with a heavier pile than a trench sheet.
At the other end of the scale, our largest vibrohammer is the EMV300. Powered by excavators between 13 and 25 tonne, this hammer is ideal for the Larssen range, or other mid-heavy duty piles.

ARG hammers are robust, versatile and easy to use. The ARG Air Hammers are the choice of waterways contractors as well as in canal / river restoration projects.
ARG Hammers are not only ideal for trench sheeting, they will drive light pile sections, H-Section columns, plastic piling, barrier posts, mooring and jetty scaffolding, steel tubes, and fencing posts, timber piles / posts.
The BSP 200 is a lightweight hammer for its size, offering a weight saving of 80kg yet delivering the same driving power as an ARG No 2.
The BSP 300 is perfect for driving L8 and M7 piles in hard ground conditions, earning it’s popularity for working on the waterways.
BSP No 5 delivers a high speed sequence of impact blows ensuring efficient installation of the piles, and is usually used in non-cohesive soils. A periodic clamp grips the sheet at each strike reducing sheet damage to a minimum. This machine is effective in driving medium weight sheet steel, tubular, H-beam or timber piles. This machine is a good choice for driving Larssen Piles, as well as working with light concrete piles in soft soil, making it fairly unique in it’s capabilities.
The Atlas Copco 400 operates off a 125cfm compressor, the largest hammer of it’s kind to do so. It can also be used for tubes, posts, and H-Sections due to it’s wider leg guide option, and due to the impact being largely centered interally, is one of the quietest hammers in our range.
McKiernan-Terry hammers sit between the Atlas Copco 400 and BSP No 5, suitable to drive a light-medium sheet pile.
TR1 for driving L8 sheets up to 2.4m in length TR2 for driving L8 sheets over 2.4m in length and for hard ground conditions.
Free hanging hydraulic impact piling hammers available in 3 sizes to fit excavators and cranes from 2.5 tonne upwards.
