Historical restoration project that I am kicking around some ideas for as an alternative to 19 concrete footings and lally columns. Home has a basement access "tunnel" that is 40" wide and 48" tall, so the machine should be able to get in there.I use helical piles all the time for decks, though not the Techno post brand. I use Postech.
I don't see why you couldn't do it, but I know my installer gets everything engineered. Covers his rear and mine.
The bigger question for me would be how you get the installation equipment down there. My guy uses a mini-ex for the torque head. I know Technopost has a small rig, but I thought it was about 30" wide.
Awesome, Dan. Thanks. This is exactly what I was looking for.
It looks like they were welded. Almost everything we do is welded.Awesome, Dan. Thanks. This is exactly what I was looking for.
Do you know how the lally columns are attached to the techno posts in this picture? Welded, fasteners, weight?
Usually a lot of cross ventilation and fresh air.Dan,
What do you do about the carbon monoxide? Once I saw a conveyor in a basement and the guy shoveling ended up getting carbon monoxide poisoning.
