How are screw piles installed?

Answer: Screw piles are essentially installed just like a woodscrew, but using hydraulic motors rather than an electric drill. There are two options for installation: a portable hand held pile installer such as our 400H & 650H models; or excavator mounted torque heads such as our 500X, 1600X & 2500X models. You can achieve greater installation torque (and therefore greater tension/compression resistance) using our excavator mounted torque heads.
