APE in Pittsburgh PA with Mascaro Construction

Mascaro Construction, Pittsburgh’s premier general contractor, was awarded the David Lawrence Convention Center Riverside Park job, which included driving steel sheeting, beams and pipe piles. In the past, Mascaro would sub out any pile driving work. But project manager Brad McKibben and Superintendent Bob Yeckel thought this would be the perfect job to self-perform. APE Northeast got the call, providing an APE 200 vibro equipped with a caisson beam, caisson clamps, and a caisson to clamp adapter. This adapter facilitates a fast swap out from a sheet clamp to a dual caisson clamp setup. LU 2235 Pile Driving foreman Bob Kerns was impressed with this set-up.

APE NE would like to thank all at Mascaro Construction for trusting APE to provide their pile equipment needs on their first self-performing pile job. Stay tuned-APE will be providing Mascaro Construction with diesel hammers on another job within a few short days. We look forward to a long, mutually rewarding relationship.

“Which exit?” South State Inc. and APE on New Jersey Turnpike Exit 7

“You’re from Jersey? Which exit?” goes the joke, referring to which exit a native New Jerseyan takes off the NJ Turnpike to get home. Superintendent Mark Timari of South State Inc. of Bridgeton NJ needed to drive 18″ pipe piles home for a bridge over the New Jersey Turnpike for the new Exit 7 Interchange. He did the right thing and called APE Northeast for an APE D30, and APE rose to the occasion, delivering a hammer ready to go to work. The D30 performed flawlessly throughout the project.

APE Northeast would like to thank South State for the business.

Please call APE NE for all your pile equipment needs at 888-217-7524.

APE 200T Vibro/APE 700 Power Unit with Kokosing Construction

Kokosing Construction, Ohio’s most prominent heavy highway contractor, was in the market for a powerful vibro for several upcoming sheetpile jobs. After carefully researching the choices, Kokosing’s equipment manager Bob Greene called APE Northeast. It was decided the APE 200T Vibro with the APE 700 HP Power Unit best suited their needs. The 200T boasts 5200 inch pounds of eccentric moment, 800 inch pounds more than the APE 200 vibro. The extra energy is due to tungsten inserts in the eccentric weights, a patented invention. In fact, the legitimacy of the patent was recently upheld in court when it was discovered 2 of APE’s competitors were secretly adding tungsten into their eccentrics as well.

The crane operator commented how “smooth” the vibro started and stopped. APE’s patented 2 stage suppressor greatly reduces the violent shaking up the boom typically associated with the operation of other manufacturers’ hammers. The 200T with the 700 HP Power Unit provides abundant hydraulic horsepower, making it a very powerful setup indeed.

Thanks to Kokosing Construction and Bob Greene for choosing APE. Call Paul Kuzik at APE/J&M Northeast @ 201-400-8356 for more info, and for all of your pile driving equipment needs.

APE and Spearin, Preston & Burrows in NYC

Spearin Preston & Burrows needed to upgrade their aging fleet of pile driving equipment for work on the Hudson River. They purchased 2 APE D46 diesel hammers and an APE 200 Vibro for the work at Pier 62/63(Chelsea Piers) driving 24″ concrete piles and a pair of D30 diesels plus an APE 200 Vibro for Pier 86 (Intrepid Pier) driving 24″ pipe piles on the Hudson River. The pile schedule was agressive enough to need an additional 200 vibro rental for both jobs.

Special thanks to Andy Murad and everyone else at Spearin Preston & Burrows who viewed APE as the obvious choice for their very large pile driving equipment purchase.
