Watson & Hillhouse are specialists in the provision of pile driving equipment building a worldwide reputation for service and technical expertise that, together with huge resources, places them at the forefront of the industry.

All equipment – for hire or sale – is subject to rigorous inspection, and any necessary remedial work is carried out in our specially equipped workshops by qualified staff. A full apprenticeship scheme helps to provide the specialist skills, commitment and reliability necessary to customer service and all staff undergo regular product update training. This expertise is also available through contract maintenance on contractors’ own equipment.

The hire fleet consists of:

• BSP Heavy duty hydraulic piling hammers - An economical solution for the installation of all types of steel, timber or concrete piles in either land or marine environments. The versatile design allows operation by crane suspension, from piling rigs or leaders.

• OMS Excavator mounted vibratory hammers - Specifically designed as pile driving and extracting attachments for excavators, these versatile piling hammers can install trench sheets, most sheet pile profiles, ‘H’, tubular, concrete and timber piles as well as CFA cages and are well suited to smaller piling operations.

• PVE and ICE Crane suspended vibratory hammers – These machines have a wide range of applications in driving and extracting sheet profiles, ‘H’, timber, concrete & tubular piles and CFA cages.

• Kowan Noise and Vibration Free Pile Press – The Kowan Still Worker allows various sheet pile profiles and tubular piles to be installed into most soil types with very little, if no, vibration or noise that is normally associated with pile driving. Ideal for built up areas pressing piles close to buildings and restricted access sites.
