Solar field installations require the right machine to best fit your setup, and as the need for renewable energy grows, so should your options for pile drivers.

The Vermeer PD5 pile driver with machine-integrated controls is fit for moving agilely around the jobsite, with a lightweight and small machine design ideal for smaller installs or sites with less space. Walk beside the machine to control its functions, with intuitive operation in its design. When transporting the PD5, keep the 15 ft (4.6 m) mast assembled, and rotate the platform to lie parallel with the tracks. Transporting this machine can be done quickly and conveniently. The PD5 pile driver is a dependable solar solution to help drive your business forward.



Walk-beside, machine-integrated controls allow the operator to control machine functions, including engagement of hammer, pile placement and ground drive. Operators can remain off the machine and walk beside it, with conveniently placed controls to allow for intuitive operation and operator comfort.
A small machine with a transport width of 86.7 in (220.2 cm), a transport height of 98.4 in (249.9 cm) and a transport length of 11.6 ft (3.5 m) allows more than one machine to be hauled on certain trailers.
The PD5 weighs in at 10,350 lb (4694.7 kg), which allows for transporting up to two pile drivers on select trailers, and less potential damage to jobsites, all while helping increase efficiency of setup and teardown with a lightweight design.
Setup and teardown are quick and convenient with a rotating platform and a mast that can stay fully assembled and stow parallel with the tracks, making it convenient for the entire crew to move to the next job.
With a forward ground drive speed of 2.6 mph (3.8 km/h), the PD5 moves quickly from pile to pile with less time wasted traveling and more time installing piles – keeping your installation efficiently moving forward.
The PD5 has an optional laser receiver and an optional compatible third-party GPS system that can provide visual input to the operator, which can help improve productivity and alignment of the machine to the specified pile location.
