INSTALLATION OF ADAPTERS
The adapters are used to drive different size piles (wood other than 18-inch (45.7 cm and steel
H-beam), concrete, or sheet piles. The adapters include 10-inch (25.4cm), 12-inch (30.5 cm),
and 16-inch (40.6 cm) guide plates, an 18-inch (45.7 cm) square (concrete) pile adapter, and
sheet pile adapter.
The three different size guide plates are bolted onto the bottom of the direct drive assembly and
replace the standard 18-inch (45.7 cm) guide plate.
Perform the following procedure to install a different size guide plate on the direct drive
assembly of the impact hammer:
Remove the ten guide plate bolts securing the guide plate to the bell housing of the
direct drive assembly.
Remove the guide plate.
Install the desired guide plate on the bell housing of the direct drive assembly and
align the bolt holes.
Place Loctite 272 on the ten guide plate bolts, secure the guide plate on the bell
housing with the bolts, and torque the hardware to 500 ftlb (677 Nm).
