1 Intended use

The ABI Vibrator HVR is intended for attachment to the shovel stick of a hydraulic excavator. The
safety requirements, for example the stability and the hydraulic system of the hydraulic excavator is
to check before assembly and commissioning by the distributor of the entire machine and to ensure.

The ABI vibrator HVR is designed for driving and extracting pile elements into driveable soils with
vibration. Solidifying working processes, for example vibro stone column processes, are excluded.
Other working processes are possible, but have to be arranged and permitted in every case by ABI.
In principle ABI vibrators are not designed for working processes under water. At permanent opera-
tion and high duty cycle (20% and more duty cycle) special precautions have to be taken because
of the high thermal loads. System required at this shoring process oscillation energy is fed in the
underground and sound emitted to the environment. Vibrations can cause subsidence of soils and
damages of buildings.

The machine and attachments are intended for use in the commercial sector and may only be ope-
rated by authorized, qualified and instructed personnel. The equipment must always be operated by
two persons. The machine can be operated in a temperature range between - 20 C up to + 40 C.
Consult the manufacturer when working outside of the mentioned temperature range. The operation of
the machine and attachments is not provided within enclosed spaces and areas subject to explosion
hazards.

The machine has been built in accordance with state-of-the-art standards and the recognized safety
rules. Nevertheless, its use may constitute a risk to life and limb of the user or of third parties, or
cause damage to the machine and to other material property.

Caution
The machine must only be used in technically perfect condition in accordance with its desi-
gnated use and the instructions set out in the operating manual, and only be safety conscious
persons who are fully aware of the risks involved in operating the machine. Any functional
disorders, especially those affecting the safety of the machine, should therefore be rectified
immediately.

The operating and maintenance personal has to receive a comprehensive introduction by ABI or a
specialist appointed by ABI before starting the equipment. In case of operating mistakes, insufficient
servicing and maintenance, overstressing as well as improper use of the pile driving equipment, no
warranty claims may be asserted.

Spare parts must comply with the technical requirements specified by the manufacturer. Spare parts
from original equipment manufacturers can be relied to do so. Installation and/or use of other spare
parts may affect the safety of the machine.

The machine must be examined at least once a year or after special occurrences by competent per-
sons. The technical condition of the machine must be examined for accident-proofness and thoroughly
on damages. The results of the examination are to be kept at least up to the next examination. The
owner of the machine is responsible for the immediate defect removal.

The national regulations in force in each user's country as well as the environment protection regulati-
ons must be observed. Cranes are usually not suitable for extracting sheet piles with free suspended
vibrators. In case of doubt please contact the crane manufacturer for an approval.

2 Description

The vibrator HVR is attached to the shovel stick of


a carrier (hydraulic excavator with shovel or grab) HVR
and is driven by the hydraulic system of the carrier.
6
The vibrator HVR-G needs a free hydraulic
function of the hydraulic excavator to supply the 1 5
clamping cylinders.

On the vibrator HVR-Z, the jaw assembly is di-


rectly connected to the pressure and return line
of the hydraulic motor via an engagement valve.

The HVR consists of a housing 1 which is lodged 2


in an elastic way in the vibrator head 2 with rub-
ber metal elements. A jaw assembly 3 serving to
take-up the pile driving elements is located on the
bottom of the driver unit.
4
The driver unit works according to the principle
of rotating unbalanced masses. A hydraulic motor
3 7
4 drives gear shafts lying one beside the other
on each of which rotate unbalanced flywheels of
the same size with the same speed and with an
opposite sense of rotation. The rotation generates
centrifugal forces whose components neutralize
one another in the horizontal and add up in the
vertical to a sinusoidal oscillation.

Upon vibratory pile driving an important part of the


inner frictional forces of soils as well as the casing
friction of the pile driving elements are reduced
or even totally eliminated through vibration. Thus
the forces required to drive the pile elements into
the soil are very low. The advance heading is
mainly generated by the pile driving and extracting
equipment's own weight and prestressing forces
of the main boom cylinder.

The vibrator HVR stands out for very short starting 1 Driver unit

To set-up the machine and to sling and


detach or align pile elements or drilling
equipment the help of authorized persons
is required, e.g. slingers or spotters. Do not
stay longer in the danger area as absolute-
ly necessary. Breaking of the sling gears,
dropping of the load, swinging of the load,
pinching of body parts are the essential
risks when slinging loads.
Authorized persons can enter the danger
area after communication with the operator
only. Keep eye contact and coordinate the
working method with each other, e.g. by
hand signals. In the danger area, personal
protective equipment must be worn.
Standing under suspended loads is forbid-
den.
If the operator's view on his driving and
working area is restricted he has to be di-
rected. Spotters must be clearly recogniz-
able. They must be visible to the operator.
Due to the construction of the machine, the
view towards the rear and the right side
of the machine is considerably restricted.
Adjust the existing mirrors for an optimum
view to all sides. Clean window panes and
mirrors regularly. Safety devices that are
available as an option, e.g. cameras for
monitoring the rear of the machine, en-
hance the operator's field of vision in the
restricted area.
Keep a safety distance to stationary struc-
tures, e.g. buildings or other machines, of
min. 0.5 m. This prevents persons from
getting jammed. If this safety distance
cannot be kept, block the area between the
stationary structures and the working area.

edges, do not crush, bend or clamp with
clamping jaw - danger of unexpected falling
over of pile elements, if pitching chain is
damaged.
Check pitching chain and suspension
points of the chain before every work, at
least once a workday. Replace immediately
at wear or damage (e.g. distortion, chafe
marks).
Do not modify pitching chain or described
lifting method - do not use parts of sup-
pliers. A safe lifting of pile elements is only
guaranteed with original spare parts.
Inspect pitching chain by competent per-
sons once a year and keep test badge.
Danger of machine parts and pile elements
tipping over - do not let pile element fall into
the pitching chain. By means of the high dy-
namic forces the pitching chain and holder

4.3.3 Pile driving

1 Check situation on job site before starting to


work:
Spacious and bearing working area. For
operating a ABI Mobilram-System a bearing
capacity of minimum 250...400 kN/m is re-
quired. Use load distributing boards (excavator
mats) or exchange soil in case of unsufficient
bearing ground.
Safety distance to power lines and cables,
buildings and other machines.
Environment protection (noise, vibration,
water protection area).
Job planning. Attach and lay down pile ele-
ments as near as possible to ABI Mobilram-
System - avoid diagonal lifting operations.
Store pile elements in a way, that they can be
attached and laid down without danger for
the slinger. Clean sheet locks and grease if
necessary.

2 Attach pile element


Dont actuate any functions while slinger is
inserting / pulling out pitching chain.

Warning
Risk of severe or even deadly injuries by
falling pile elements. Only use pile elements
with approved pitching hole diameter and
distance.
Always secure pile elements with the pit-
ching chain.
Risk of crushing - Do not stand in the dan-
ger area when corrective movements of the
leader mast are executed.

3 Raise pile element


Slowly lift the vibrator until the pile element
hangs free in the pitching chain.

Warning
Risk of tipping over - check tight seat of
t-handle.
Risk of tipping over - Avoid diagonal lifting
operations.
Execute the erecting operation very slowly
at the end to keep the pile element from
swinging.

4.3.4 Extracting pile elements

1 Attach pile element


Don't actuate any function as long as slinger
secures pile elements with pitching chain

Warning
Always secure pile elements with pitching
chain.
Only use pile elements with approved pit-
ching hole diameter and distance.
Risk of bruise - do not stay in danger zone
during correction movements.

2 Clamp pile element


Set the jaw assembly on the pile element.
Close jaw assembly.

Warning
Risk of crushing - do not reach into the jaw
assembly.
Always grip pile elements with complete
surface of jaw pads. Otherwise piles and
jaw assembly will be damaged.
It is prohibited to extract pile elements with
pitching chain only while the jaw assembly
is open.

3 Extract pile element


Bring vibrator to operating speed.
Release pile element with pile driving.
Extract pile element.

By using pile driving aids the pile extracting time


as well as noise emissions and vibrations are
considerably reduced. When the pile extracting
progress is smaller than 10 cm/min release pile
elements by augering.

Caution
If no pile driving progress can be discerned
immediately stop the pile driving operation
because otherwise the soil may be compacted
and the attachment will be damaged.

25
Vibrator HVR

4 As soon as the pile element is totally ex-


tracted off the soil:
Shut off speed and wait until it stops.
Reduce speed as soon as pile element hangs
free. This avoids unnecessary vibrations and
wear on the hydraulic excavator.

5 Deposit pile element

Warning
Wait until vibrator stops before opening
the clamping jaw - danger of pile elements
falling over or damage of the machine.
Place pile elements on bearing ground and
secure pile elements against falling over
before opening the clamping jaw.
Use only suitable pitching chains.
Danger of damaging the pitching chains
and risk of falling pile element when pile
is lowered improperly. Slew uppercarriage
and main booe in the required position so
you can see the chains from the cab, if
possible. Orientate vibrator respectively
to the pitching chains and the pile element
in one line. Avoid diagonal lowering opera-
tions. Other personnel should also assist
in observing chains during lowering of pile
element, especially if operator can not see
the pitching chains.
Lower vibrator with pile element slowly to
avoid damage to the pitching chains.
Drive crawler chassis slowly backwards to
deposit the pile element. When lowering
pile elements, observe that the pitching
chains are not pinched between pile ele-
ment and mast and are hanging freely.

Place pile element on solid ground.
