At the beginning of March, NPK introduced their newest innovation to the market. At ConExpo 2017, the C6-CSD sheet pile driver was put on display for the first time. NPK sheet pile drivers use a hydraulically powered clamp bolted to the base of a modified vibratory plate compactor to drive or extract large diameter pipe or sheeting. This inventive design combines the powerful impulse forces of NPK's original plate compactors with the delicate vibrations required to “liquefy” soil, making pressing the sheeting into the soil far more efficient.

NPK sheet pile driver jaws are hydraulically operated and run on a secondary hydraulic circuit from the driving unit. The hydraulic jaws combined with a 180° self-aligning swivel feature increases safety and ease of operation therefore boosting productivity. Like all excavator mounted attachments, sheeting length is limited by the reach of the excavator. All models have a maximum jaw opening of 40 mm (1.5 in).
