In total, the hydraulic telescopic mast can extend up to 5 metres. Two additional mast sections have been fitted to provide a maximum pin height of 23,440 mm. This allows longer sheet piles to be installed, with a maximum length of 21 metres and a weight of 3,750 kg. It is also possible to work closer to the machine. When there is limited working space (projects in the city centre) or when work has to be done from a pontoon (hydraulic engineering works), this offers great advantages. The machine’s undercarriage can be hydraulically widened to a maximum outer dimension of 5 metres, which provides extra stability during the work. The VDH Sheet Piler is also available with a four-section mast.


In place of the original ballast weight, Van den Heuvel has developed a special weighted frame, on which the power pack is placed. Hydraulic cylinders at the back of the frame make it easy to remove the power pack. This reduces the transport weight, for cost-efficient transport. The power pack with frame also serves as a counterweight. Depending on the  machine’s power rating, Van den Heuvel gives you the choice of a separate power pack and separate vibratory hammer. This ensures that the latest requirements can always be met. The combination in which the drive runs via the vibratory hammer provides optimum performance. All VDH machines in production today are powered by a Stage V engine.
