Helical piers, large diameter piles, and micropiles are installed with a drive head mounted on a machine. Backhoes, skid-steer loaders, and other excavators can be rigged with an appropriate drive string assembly to install piles and anchors.
The drive head selected must be compatible with the hydraulic flow (gallons per minute) of the machine on which it is mounted. Larger diameter piles require more torque, while most helicals can be installed with small, low-impact equipment and smaller drive heads.
Project Assistance From Start to Finish
Danbro has 22 years of experience in creating drive-string assemblies to install helical piers. We assist new and existing installers in selecting the drive tools, torque indicator, and drive head that will best comport with your machine and the nature of your construction business. Virtually any hydraulic equipment can be adapted to install helical piles. Not only will we help you select the correct component parts to best suit your needs, we will join you in the field to assemble and test them.
