Anchor/Foundation Drive Equipment Heads
Intech Anchoring offers vehicle-mounted, hydraulic-powered drive heads available with 3,500, 6,000, and 11,500 ft-lb torque ratings. They are especially suited for vertical installations of screw-type anchors, foundations, and bumper posts. The drive head comes in two torque-rating ranges.
The design also delivers other features for rugged field conditions:
Precision planetary gears and bearings in oil-filled, sealed gearcase
Heavy-duty output housing and bearings
Heavy-duty bail flange mounted to gearcase housing that provides balanced load-sharing torque restraint
Dual-pin mounting that provides drive-head positioning for controlled installations
Drive head also readily accepts earth augers for hole digging
Hose assemblies are not furnished with drive heads. For hydraulic flow of more than 20 gpm, a 3⁄4″-diameter hose is recommended. For flow rates of 20 gpm and below, 1⁄2″ hose may be used. Swivel joint and swivel joint adapter are furnished. Thread size is 1″ to 1½″ NPSM (National Pipe Straight Mechanical).
Portable Anchor Installers for Foundations
For most shaft-driven guy anchors and smaller screw foundations, these compact drivers get into areas where large equipment cannot go or is impractical. The operator does not need to resist the torque generated by anchor installation. Countertorque transmits through a torque bar from the drive head to the earth or other restraint. This frees the operator for the task of guiding the anchor path and makes the system easy to install.
Built-in bypass valve limits output to 2,500 ft-lb maximum, two-way foot pedal gives operator direct control over drive and reverse directions, and hoses (two 12 ft. and two 25 ft.) come with quick couplers for all connections from power supply to foot control to drive head. Pivoting drive-head yoke connects with a bent-arm pin to square-tubular torque bar that telescopes from 8 to 10 feet as needed.

Intech Anchoring Understands Your Hurdles

We want to be sure that you get the most of out of your investment. We are always willing to work with our clients and have flexibility when it comes to your budgetary limitations.
