The Vulcan Data Manual (Bulletin 800) was developed in the early 1960's. It was intended to give Vulcan sales and technical personnel basic information on Vulcan hammers, their competitors and their application. It was begun when Vulcan's main office was in Chattanooga and completed after it moved to its West Palm Beach facility (as is evident by the cover's addresss and depiction of offshore pile driving, which was becoming the company's main market.)

Although the Data Manual is still available, we have an updated Data Manual--with much more information--in the Vulcanhammer.info Guide to Pile Driving Equipment.

Topics covered by the data manual (with their Data Sheet "DS" numbers) are as follows:
  • DS-1 PORTABLE AIR COMPRESSOR GUIDE
  • DS-2 BOILER SELECTION GUIDE

  • DS-4 SHEET PILING - DEEP ARCH TYPE
  • DS-5 SHEET PILING - STRAIGHT WEB PILING
  • DS-6 SHEET PILING - "Z" TYPE PILES
  • DS-6A SHEET PILING - MISCELLANEOUS
  • DS-7 SPECIFICATIONS OF COMPARABLE SIZES OF PILE EXTRACTORS
  • DS-8 SPECIFICATIONS OF COMPARABLE SIZES OF PILE HAMMERS

  • DS-10 COMPARATIVE SELLING POINTS - DGH100 - MKT #3
  • DS-11 COMPARATIVE SELLING POINTS - SUPER VULCAN
  • DS-12 COMPARATIVE SELLING POINTS - VULCAN
  • DS-13 COMPARATIVE SELLING POINTS - EXTRACTORS
  • DS-14 SPECIFICATIONS - DISCONTINUED HAMMERS
  • DS-15 SPECIFICATIONS - PILE EXTRACTORS - FOREIGN MADE
