Chance Screw Piles

Hey Guys,

Iíve been looking for a while for a used screw pile drive for my mink skid for a while now. Just want it for my own projects so the $6000 for a new drive wouldnít pay off.

Iíve found a guy a few hours from me that has a Chance 2500ftlb drive. Itís designed to run off a power pack and isnít machine dependant but I could get a boom made for it to work on my machine.

I donít know much about screw piles so I though I would see if anyone has any experience with this brand.

This is what I am looking at

Re: Chance Screw Piles

Soil conditions should also be taken into consideration. They don't do well with rocks.
