Auger Piling

Solutions from

Mabey Hire

Temporary works specialist Mabey Hire has added a trio

of new Auger drills to its vast product catalogue, making

it one of the most extensive offering of its kind currently

available in the hire market.

There are three models currently available: 8,000

MAX S6 Series to suit 5 t to 13 t carriers; the

20,000 MAX S6 Series to suit 13 t to 20 t carriers and

the 35,000 MAX PA Series to suit 20 t to 45 t

The new Auger range offers a safer and faster way

of driving sheet piles into difficult conditions than is

currently offered by traditional piling methods, breaking

up earth to effectively turn cohesive into non-cohesive


The Auger is fitted in exactly the same way as an

excavator mounted vibrator (EMV), and utilises the same

excavator. This significantly reduces the cost of transport

in piling projects, and lessens the need for crane equip-

ment, offering a substantial saving in time, cost and other

Datatag Id

Limited Launch

‘Micro Cesar’

Datatag ID Limited, the power behind the official

CESAR Scheme, has launched a new anti-theft sys-

tem for small tools and equipment at this year’s

CITS conference held at JCB’s world headquarters

in Rocester called Micro CESAR.

Leading insurers, manufacturers and industry

bodies have raised the issue of small tool theft and

Micro CESAR is the response from the Construction

Equipment Association (CEA), who initiated CESAR,

and Datatag.

The Micro CESAR identity system, with Datatag

technology including a unique RFID tag and a warn-

ing/registration label with an integrated QR code,

will have the same effect that the CESAR Scheme has in

deterring theft and assisting in recovery.

CESAR, launched in 2007, has contributed to a 70+%

reduction in the theft of large construction equipment

since launched.

Micro-CESAR is poised to make a similar impact pro-

tecting small construction and landscaping equipment

such as power tools, cut-off saws, hand-held hydraulic

breakers and compaction plates.

As an added bonus to many companies, the technol-

ogy in the Micro-CESAR system can also be used as a

stock management tool helping companies track tools

in and out of jobs and allowing users to easily access on

line health and safety advice and user manuals through

the unique QR code and mobile enabled Micro CESAR
