I installed five of the large CHANCE anchors when I put my Rohn 25
Fold-over in. The Chance anchors were an Over-Kill, but the price was right
and a safety margin usually helps.
I went to the local Tool Rental store and rented an electric driver of the
type used by Mobile Home Set-up crews. These are usually a worm drive
electric motor with an adapter to catch the eye on the anchor, and a
switch. the switch is reversible, and, for safety, is "momentary" so the
system stops if you slip.
For mobile home use, with smaller anchors, the unit is just hand held with
a pipe bar. For the Chance anchors, you may have to brace the bar on the
An alternative, that I have not needed to use, is the local Utility
Company. They have hydraulic drives for working with such anchors, and they
do it FAST.
