At one point or another in its history, Vulcan attempted to produce or market every type of pile driver made. Probably the persistently least successful type were the diesel hammers. Vulcan's failure to manufacture and/or market a widely accepted diesel hammer was a significant long-term problem for the company.

Nevertheless diesel hammers are an important and interesting type of impact pile driver. This section of vulcanhammer.info discusses diesel hammers in general and Vulcan's several attempts to enter the market.
