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.


A big advantage of the small hammers is that they have a long tool life and require few repairs. And if repair should ever be needed, it does not have to be done in the workshop – it can be done out in the field. Based on practical experience, the frame has been developed in such a way that the change of hammer cylinders, hoses and accumulators can be done on location. This makes it quick and easy to carry out a repair, which is also more cost-effective.
