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 1.5 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 tons 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.
