ARE’s AFS 1300 foundation is small in size, 15’ in diameter, but can support base moment loads up to 500,000 foot lbs. With a crew of 4 people and proper tools, the foundation can be installed in 2 days including ballast loading with skid-steer.
Installation is simple and quick. The central kingpost is set with pie-like trays laid around it. Truss arms are then assembled and torqued to make the foundation rigid. With ballast loaded, this foundation will weigh 100,000 lbs with side walls extending 5 feet high.
Our 30 ton hydraulic ram kit raises a 100’ pole in just under 2 minutes. Remove the rams and take them to your next ARE pole to raise.
