Limited Access Pile Driver Project after Landslide

Peninsula Environmental Uses PD200 Pile Driver to Install Sheet Pile Wall After Landslide in Port Angeles, Washington

When a landslide occurred behind a residential client’s house in Port Angeles, Washington, Peninsula Environmental was called in to provide a solution. With limited access to the site, the team knew they needed a compact and versatile pile driver to get the job done. That’s where the PD200 from Rhino Tools came in.

The PD200 is a pneumatic pile driver that is designed to drive a range of different types of piles, including steel sheet piles. It’s compact and easy to transport, making it ideal for use in remote locations or on difficult terrain. With its ability to be used with a variety of different air compressors, the PD200 can be adapted to the specific requirements of the job. We use a CFM 185 tow-behind air compressor to power the pile driver.

The team at Peninsula Environmental used a mini excavator to lift the PD200 and sheet piles in the air before driving them into the soil. This approach allowed them to access the limited space behind the house, and the PD200’s compact size made it easy to maneuver in tight spaces. Once the pile driver was in place, the team used it to drive approximately 20 sheet piles in the rear of the house. Sheet piles are a type of interlocking sheet – either steel or vinyl – that are used to retain soil and prevent landslides. They’re an effective solution for areas where there is limited space or difficult access.

The PD200 made quick work of driving the sheet piles into the soil. Its powerful pneumatic hammer provided the driving force for the piles, allowing them to be installed quickly and efficiently. The team was able to complete the installation of the sheet pile wall in a timely manner, despite the challenging conditions. The use of the PD200 and sheet pile wall provided a durable solution for the landslide behind the residential client’s house. The sheet pile wall will retain the soil and prevent future landslides, protecting the property and ensuring the safety of those living in the house.
