High quality Italian engineered pile driver. The MGI Tonker 830 is certified as UKCA compliant and
built to EU, USA and International safety and quality standards.
Piling | Drilling | Screwing | Cleaning
CE & UKCA Registered and Compliant
MGI Tonker 830 can also be used for drilling and screw piling
Drilling: By replacing the hammer with the 2500Nm rotary drill system it can be used for sustained drilling. For occasional drilling the 1500Nm drill can be attached simultaneously to the hammer frame.
Screw piling: There are various size rotary heads which can replace the hydraulic hammer. With the benefits of a state of the art torque reader they are excellent for all screw piling.
