Orteco FEX 1000 Solar Pile Driver
The Orteco FEX 1000 solar pile driver is a new machine. It has been created to meet the need to drive posts in difficult conditions. This machine can operate well off-road and on steep gradients; situations often encountered when working on photovoltaic installations.
The key features of the new machine are:
- Crawler-mounted with iron chain and rubber-coated iron shoes
This solution permits the crawler to operate on difficult terrain without suffering damage. The Orteco FEX 1000 can be used on asphalt and cement surfaces without causing damage. It can also be safely loaded on ramps.
- Hydraulically extendable crawler
Orteco have adopted a larger crawler for this machine, with a length of 2500 mm and width of 200 mm. With a hydraulic device, the crawler can be extended up to 2700 mm.
This solution gives to the pile driver the option greater stability when facing adverse conditions.
The Orteco FEX 1000 solar pile driver may be fitted with:
Hydraulic Rotor/down the hole hammer: The hydraulic rotor is used for down the hole hammers or for “screwing in” poles with a volute. The down the hole hammer can be used to drill in rock, concrete or when the ground is highly compact and can be left in position when not in use.
Hydraulic Drill: to excavate in mixed terrain in order to insert iron tubes and concrete bases for special applications;
Extractor: Dual action, lifting/percussive, extractor for removal of old or poorly positioned piles;
Laser: A laser mounted on a tripod communicates with the receiver mounted on the hammer. The operator can set a level for the hammer to stop automatically when reached;
Verticality Control: allows the operator to position the piles verticality perfectly with the push of a button.
The Orteco FEX 1000 is a truly complete, dependable, versatile and compact machine.
