No Access, No Problem
Some helical pier installations pose extremely limited access and major mobilization issues. Inside work, such as basements or crawl spaces, are examples of these types of challenges. Danbro offers portable, hand-held helical pile installation equipment components and provides specialized training to ensure a safe and successful installation. The portable unit consists of a drive head with the appropriate drive tool, an extendable reaction bar to resist the torque, and a hydraulic foot pedal control valve. For shaft-driven guy anchors and smaller screw foundations, these compact drivers are ideal when ease of access for large equipment is not available.
Hand-held portable units need to be used with the utmost skill and caution. Special training is required to utilize this unique helical installation methodology. Most of our installers do not have portable hand-held units. The installations are slow and labor-intensive, and, therefore, more costly than a similar installation with an excavator-mounted drive string assembly. Contact Danbro to receive a referral to a seasoned, well-trained installer, capable of utilizing this system.
