Screw piling with our hydraulic crawler rig “DUG”

DUG is our larger hydraulic installation crawler rig, powered by a 35.5kW YANMAR engine and equipped with a front-facing drive mast that delivers an output of 12,000Nm of torque. This combination allows for the efficient installation of our larger diameter helical screw piles to depths exceeding 10m in suitable ground conditions.​

With large caterpillar rubber tracks, DUG can tackle the most difficult terrain with minimal impact and maximised stability, capable of installing screw piles and ground screw foundations in areas of challenging ground without the need for extensive piling mats.


  • 12,000Nm of torque for larger capacity installations
  • Live installation feedback for data logging
  • 1,500Nm Independent rotary drill head

​DUG supports our screw-piling teams in achieving the depths and load-bearing capacities required to support larger developments including foundations for houses, log cabins, BESS, and walkways in nature parks, amongst others.
