The "bottom drive wick drain vibrator" is the ultimate choice for the installation of long vertical drains in difficult soil. The vibro is mounted to the boom of any hydraulic excavator of sufficient weight and power and includes a mandrel with sprockets, a light weight leader to support the mandrel and the operating console.
Two or four sprocket drives push the mandrel by static force with a speed of up to 100 m/min into the soft soil. If more force is needed to overcome hard ground layers just push one button and vibration is added to the mandrel providing unmatched installation speed and power in every soil.
