This device is used to drive a pile into the ground with little effort. The user operates a winch to lift the driving weight, which is automatically released from a connecting hook – falling and hitting the pile with great force. The weight is then re-engaged by lowering the connecting hook.
A very similar principle is applied in many modern-day hydraulic hammers and pile drivers.
