Spider Excavator with EMV Attachment

Working on an existing embankment with restricted working room behind residential properties, meant the installation of a traditional piling mat was not feasible without significant land take of the rear gardens of the residential properties. Traditionally for these piling works the contractor would install a pile mate and use a 14t tracked excavator with an EMV attachment.

Therefore, the contractor looked for plant that could work on a slope without a platform. The menzi muck is used to excavate on steep slopes as it has 4 retractable legs that are used to level the cab. Given that excavator attachments are used on the menzi the contactor engaged with the supplier to see if sheet piling attachments could be fitted.

Though engagement with the supplier, the machine hadn’t been used for this application before. This was also recognised by the Environment Agency who provided funding to trial this method. The method was successful with improved outputs over the traditional method including a 14 week saving on the programme, over £400k saving and 240t carbon saving.
