Pre-Drilling, Screen Piles & Pile Refusal Rectification

In 2017, JWM Contracting designed a solution for pre-drilling and pile refusals in solar farm development and this is currently patent pending. Using small to medium excavators, the custom designed attachment is capable of drilling in all soil types including rock, with accuracy levels not available in any other type of machinery.
One of a kind, these rigs are completely manoeuvrable and attached to the front stick of the excavator so that drilling in tight locations is easily achieved. The rigs are also designed to be adjustable to fit any auger size.
With impeccable efficiency these rigs have the capability to meet 10-20mm tolerance requirements and produce up to 200 holes per day. These designs are also used to rectify holes drilled by larger, more expensive machines that are unable to meet the same tolerances.
In relation to pile refusal, JWM has produced a solution for hammering piles to depth where standard piling machines have been unable to drill in hard ground conditions. We now have multiple hammer options and custom make and machine tools to fit each pile to ensure there is no damage to the head of the pile. This solution is currently being used very successfully by Quanta, RCR and Downer Group and is significantly stronger and quicker than the smaller piling machines in terms of piles at refusal.

Product Spotlight

In 2017 JWM Contracting designed and patented a solution for pre-drilling and pile refusals in solar farm development.

Using 25 tonne excavators, the custom designed attachment is capable of drilling in all soil types, including rock with accuracy levels not available in any other type of machinery.
One of kind, these rigs are completely manoeuvrable and attached to the front stick of the excavator so that drilling in tight locations is easily achieved. The rigs are also designed to be adjustable to fit any auger size.
With impeccable efficiency these rigs are also being used to rectify holes drilled by larger, more expensive machines that are unable to meet tolerances.
In relation to pile refusal, we have multiple hammer options and tools to fit different pile sizes.
These are currently being used very successfully by RCR and Downer Group and are significantly stronger and quicker than the smaller piling machines when it comes to piles at refusal. Our tooling is made to fit each different pile design to minimise damage to the pile.
These rigs are currently going through the patent process and will be ready for commercial distribution in early 2018.
These designs are patent pending.
