Equipment

Avopiling has a wide range of equipment used in ground engineering applications. We have the flexibility in our fleet to manage a number of different applications and we are able to deliver everything from Diaphragm Wall, Continuous Flight Auger, Bored Piles, Driven piles and Ground Improvement Works i.e. Cutter Soil Mixing, Turbojet and Jet Grouting. We also have all the ancillary equipment that is required for everyday operations onsite. Our site teams are able to utilise excavators, air compressors, grout mixing plants, bentonite processing plants and a variety of other plant items to ensure that projects are delivered safely and on time.

  • Drilling Rigs

    Our state of the art fleet is made up of highly respected European piling rig manufacturers, Soilmec, Bauer and Tescar drilling rigs. Capacities ranging from 11t to 170t working weights. Avopiling offers a variety of drilling diameters ranging from 300mm to 3000mm piles and to drilled depths of up to 90m into hard rock. Our unique low headroon "Stumpy" piling rig enables us to work efficienlty below bridges, power lines, within tunnels as well as in other extremely restricted sites. This machine can also drill up to a diameter of 1.5m.

    With our advanced drilling tools we can drill into any type of rock ranging from extremely weathered wet rock to extremely high strength fresh rock.

  • Driven Pile Rigs

    Aside from suspended hammers to drive piles, Avopiling utilizes a Junttan PM26 and a Liebherr LRB255 piling rigs. These rigs can drive precast concrete or steel section piles of up to 23 m in a single length and greater in jointed lengths. The Junttan PM26 may be fitted with Junttan impact hammers of 5, 7 or 9 tonnes and or a 14 tonne Dematec hammer. The 40VML vibratory hammer and the BSP H110 impact hammer may be fitted to the Liehberr 255 rig to drive sheet piles, concrete and steel piles

  • Diaphragm Wall Mechanical Grabs & Cutters

    Avopiling uses a Bauer BC32 trench cutter and Leffer grabs in conjunction with other in house plant items to construct diaphragm walls to a very high level of precision and accuracy.

    We even have decanting systems that can treat bentonite slurries during and after the construciton process to reduce environmental impact.

  • Bentonite, polymer and grout plant setups

    Avopiling have various material batching and treatment plant options available. We are able to tailor our site set up to suit almost any site conditions and requirements, whether that dictates a simple or a complex solution.

  • Concrete Pumps

    Avopiling owns a fleet of state of the art concrete pumps that are well regarded throughout the construction industry. We have been instrumental in developing in collaboration with Schwing Australia a pump that is tailor made for the CFA and DDP piling market, whilst remaining suitable for any other concrete pumping application. Avopiling also utilizes concrete pumps that were designed and manufactured by Avopiling. We were able to do this through our world class workshop facilites.

  • Ancillary Equipment

    Avopiling have an array of tools and ancillary equipment to suit design and site requirements. Our drilling tools i.e augers, rock and slide buckets are superior, designed and built in our workshop in Unanderra, NSW. We have also Leffer's Spherical Grab and coring tools of various dimensions to suit all types of soil and rock.

    Avopiling utilizes its own excavators, welding machines, air compressors, impact and vibratory hammers, power packs and various pumps to support majority of its piling operations.
