The two common methods are pier or pad  pier

Pier will almost always require a driller. Pad and Pier can allow you to
excavate with a backhoe or track hoe, so it can be more do-it-yourself. But
compacting it will requite a lot of work and dry soil conditions.

The depth is dependant on soils analysis. Wind load, and tower design
requirements. The manufacturer will typically provide this or you can try
Hardy Engineering in Trussville, AL.

The manufacturers do provide typical designs but know that the ultimate
capacity of what you do in the air is directly related to what you bury.


Good luck!

The engineering for tower mounting is available on the websites of most
tower manufacturing and only costs $ if you want wet ink docs.  This is
no place for short cuts and I would suggest overbuilding your tower
supporting base to a fault.

RE: [WISPA] Tower hole size

2007-07-25 Thread Kenneth M. Chipps PhD
There is no rule of thumb. Contact the manufacturer as it depends on the
tower and the soil type where the tower will go. The foundation plan makes
certain assumptions about the soil. If your soil does not match these
assumptions, then the foundation will need to be altered. Usually this means
a bigger hole. There are geologist/soil engineers who do this.
