Portable Helical Drive Head Kit

The “handheld” helical drive head kit is not for the faint of heart. The drive head weighs approximately 90lbs and the reaction arm is another 80lbs. Despite the weight, this unit can be operated with as small as a two-man crew to install helical anchors in basements or other locations with overhead limitations. The reaction arm must be braced against a solid surface such as a basement wall or floor to provide resistance against the 7,000 ft-lb of potential torque that this tool can achieve. The kit comes complete with a foot control pedal and hoses. An auxiliary hydraulic source must be provided and can be rented at most equipment rental facilities.

System Components:

  • Portable Drive Head 7000 ft-lb
  • Hoses
  • Foot Pedal
  • Drive Tool
  • Hydraulic Power Pack

Individual Drive Heads

Intech offers sales and support for trusted helical drive head manufacturers including Eskridge, Digga, and Pro-Dig. Single-speed and dual-speed drives available with torque ranges from 2500 ft-lbs up to 360,000 ft-lbs.

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.
