Junttan introduces fully battery-powered electric pile driving rig
Junttan Oy has manufactured a fully battery-powered electric pile driving rig, the PMx2e. The rig's hydraulic system is controlled by an electric motor that generates power from a battery pack, which has replaced the counterweight. The PMx2e is designed to mimic the use, efficiency, and power of its diesel-powered PMx22 as closely as possible. Offering the same structure and usability as the PMx22, the PMx2e consumes less energy per pile, reduces noise, and delivers more power and instant torque.
