Super Kong makes Australian debut

The Super Kong 600 has some other impressive numbers too, such as an eccentric moment of 20,000 inch pounds (23,090kg-cm) and a maximum line pull for extraction of 2224kN. Using a quad clamp system, the Super Kong can drive a 3m-diameter caisson 60m into the ground with ease, according to Brisbane-based importer Cesco Australia. Cesco says the advanced technology used in the big hammer puts it “light years ahead” of the competition. The Super Kong 600 has been designed with a lined, bored top plate to reduce the number of hoses and increase the serviceability of the suppressor. The machine’s helical motor gear design reduces internal parts while delivering a higher eccentric moment than direct drive units. Cesco has teamed the Super Kong up with an equally impressive hydraulic powerpack. The FAV 1050 is built around Caterpillar’s C27 ACERT engine, which delivers 745 kilowatts at 2100rpm. Maximum pressure is 340 bar with a flow of 1219 litres per minute.Cesco launched FAV vibratory hammers onto the Australian market in July this year. The hammers are supplied to Cesco by its Singapore-based sister company, FAE, a major supplier of piling equipment to the Asian market.The model range available for sale or hire includes six excavator-mounted machines as well as five bigger units designed for use with a crawler crane and powerpack.*This article was first published in Contractor magazine.
