Alternate methods to mount a Nally Tower

Post by VK3ZAZ » Mon May 13, 2019 5:22 pm

Hi all,
Would you like to share any pics or diagrams of how you did not mount your Nally on the 3 metre round pole sticking out of the ground.
Having trouble accessing site with a hydraulic Auger.
Hit clay at 1 metre and had to rescue auger with engine crane just.
Thinking of other was.
Hinge at base no point in that.

Has anyone used the large slab method?
nally calculations show regions a thru d
and slab size from 3 m square down to 1.8 and 30 cm thick with mesh, reo and hi tensile bolts
A 40 cm x 40 cm plate 2cm steel fillet welded to the 3 m pipe.

Anyone used the page 8 alternate 1.8 m foundation?
Anyone mounted a Nally on side of big shed?
I have 5 metre gables on a 20x80 shed and could make the peak the pivot point.

Thanks for looking.

QED
Don't weld two poles together making unmanageable 6M 200kg pole
Flang and fillet weld each end lath cut.
6 x M21 HS bolts
2M section in ground becomes the foundation.
1M hole plus mesh.
Well over rating required.
when you leave pole in ground with pot plant on it. :J
Pics coming.
Tread your own path :om:
