Hoisting / lifting equipment
Placing the pile below the rig should occur in the manner indicated on the drawing.
When the piles need to be hoisted by a sling or harness, two hoists might also be used. Place the sling or harness on the red marks. Situations such as on the drawing on the right should be avoided.
Short piles can also be moved with a shovel (broad support).
When hoisting the piles, prevent the pile edges from being damaged. The use of slings is recommended for this reason. When using chains, also use edge protection.
The lifting brackets may not be used to move the piles vertically below the pile driving rig. The lifting brackets may be used to unload or move the piles in a horizontal position.
