Geotechnical contractor May Gurney (Technical Services) is using two restricted access rigs from Hutte on a variety of rail contracts. The compact rigs weigh only 10t but can install 450mm diameter piles to depths of 20m on difficult and restricted sites.

The rigs were used to install foundations for gantry bases during nighttime possessions in north west England.

They have also been used to form the boreholes for installing inclinometers on a site investigation of a failed embankment for Railtrack at Ilkley, Yorkshire.
