--------------- JOB STORIES

Driving tubes from a barge 

A pile driving contractor located in Switzerland had to drive 12-inch tubes used for a boat docking project. A Gilbert Grizzly MultiGrip MG-60 side grip pile driver installed on a Komatsu PC-290 was used to accomplish this job. The handling ability and ease of movement was a key factor for them as they had to work out from a barge. Hundreds of these piles have been successfully driven using the side grip method.


Logging road bridge in Washington State 

H-beams were installed with a MG-90 pile driver for a logging road bridge in Western USA. The Gilbert Grizzly MultiGrip vibratory pile driver can install piles on almost any job site with limited access or adverse conditions prohibiting the use of a crane.

--------------- NEW FEATURE

NEW Generation IQAN Control & Assistance System

Gilbert’s devoted engineering team has made significant improvements to the operator control system.

Since June 2020, our customers have highly benefited from our new IQAN Control and Assistance system.

‘’This new screen is a lot more fun to work with!’’ cited an Operator in the field, ‘’ We went from a small black and white screen, to a new 7 inch color touch screen!’’

Proven advantages of the new IQAN system are: it is very User-Friendly, it registers operation data, and it is remote access. Our Service team can log onto the customer’s system from anywhere in the world. This feature has strongly been important during the pandemic period, where traveling to different construction sites has been limited.

This new system is very easy to install on all excavator models. It can also be retrofitted to all existing Gilbert Grizzly Pile Driver operations.
