VDH piling hammers have been around for a long time and are, in fact, simple yet efficient hammers. Based on years of expertise and the necessary practical and customer experience, VDH has continuously developed its piling hammers. As a result, the quality has continuously improved and the hammers are extremely reliable. With a view to the future, Van den Heuvel has begun developing noise-reducing hammers, in response to increasing market demand for quieter piling hammers.


The large VDH hammers from 10 to 18 tonnes can be used free hanging and leader mounted – both options are possible. The 10-18 tonne hammers always make use of two accelerated cylinders, which push the drop weight down, rather than just letting it fall. This acceleration imparts more energy from the hammer to the pile (for concrete) and pipe (for steel), which improves the quality of the work.


• Efficient, robust hammer
• High reliability
• Two accelerated cylinders
• Flexible, modular construction
• Long tool life
• Field repairable
• Adjustable drop height
