Diversify your applications with an excavator-mounted side grip pile driver

Designed for deep foundation construction work, the Gilbert Grizzly MultiGrip is the most versatile excavator-mounted vibratory pile driver. Thanks to its side clamp system with Quick-Change and 3PAS technology, it allows precise handling, driving and extraction of all types of piles (H-beams, sheet piles, tubes & timber piles) in a wide variety of applications and industries.

This vibratory hammer can easily be installed on any excavator, allowing you to work in confined spaces where the use of conventional piling equipment is difficult. An intuitive control and assistance system allows the operator to achieve maximum potential productivity with a high-level of precision during the entire pile driving process.

Quick-Change : From sheet piles to timbers

The patented removable side jaws allow you to quickly change between sheet piling and H-beams to pipes or timber piles in no time. Gilbert's exclusive Quick-Change system offers maximum versatility, allowing you to handle all types of piles with just one attachment.

3PAS : For faster driving

The 3PAS technology offers a unique three-point grip configuration. The holding system gives the side grip pile driver a higher maximum holding force and ensures optimal energy transfer from the vibrating unit to the pile, resulting in faster and more efficient driving.

Power drive : For a greater force

Thanks to the Power Drive technology, the pile is directly in contact with the vibrating unit of the side grip vibratory pile driver so there is no energy loss. The driving force is optimally transferred to the pile, which increases the vibration effect in order to accelerate the pile driving process.
