Low Cost Technology

This is my first time encountering this type of low cost technology to drive piles in its location. Just using available timber materials, the equipment can be used anywhere desired. Due to the abundance of timber materials, this techology can be made available to everybody. Of course, this technology has its own limitation. The obvious limitations are in term of type of piling materials that can be used (concrete vs. timber) and the length of piles. Obviously, this technology is applicable to drive timber piles and only for very short pile depending on the height of the equipment being set up.
