The 200 kN CPT penetrometer pusher has been specially designed to be mounted on an excavator. It comes with CW-couplings and non-spill hydraulic couplings for quick and easy attaching to a hydraulic excavator. It is lightweight and economical with full Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) capabilities. The pusher is powered by the excavator’s hydraulic system and suitable for both electrical and mechanical CPT testing.
The CPT penetrometer pusher features 2 hydraulic cylinders with manually operated valves and a stainless-steel housing for datalogger and computer. It is powered by the hydraulic system of the excavator.
The CPT penetrometer pusher is made of the highest quality components available and built to last. The choice for high quality components of well-known manufacturers having local service centres worldwide reduces machine downtime to a minimum.
CPT Penetrometer Pusher
A hydraulic penetrometer pusher of classic design, comprising 2 vertical hydraulic cylinders, simultaneously operated, with a stroke of 1350 mm. A thrust block connects the two cylinders. It is capable of driving and pulling the CPT sounding tubes and casing tubes into and out of the ground.
A hydraulic control unit, mounted on a console near the penetrometer pusher, allows the operator to control all functions.
The unit comes complete with 2 guiding tubes, to be applied between the penetrometer and ground level. One for the support of the CPT sounding tubes, the other for casing tubes.
The CPT penetrometer pusher is designed for both electrical and mechanical CPT testing. This penetrometer pusher allows for pushing in and pulling out CPT sounding tubes with a diameter of 36 mm, as well as casing tubes with a diameter of 55 mm, and sampling tubes with a diameter up to 90 mm.
