Re: Eccentric Load on Drilled Pier

You must have more anchor installers on your side of the state, Gary. The last couple of times I've recommended helical anchors or micropiles, the contractor has gotten lightheaded at the sight of the estimate.  Up until recently we've only had a single helical installer in the surrounding 100+ miles, so maybe that's part of the problem.

We have been using helical anchors by Chance to support large loads where spread footings are not appropriate and in pre-engineered buildings where there is a large uplift.  They are economical, easy to install, and good for compression and tension.
