The Duckbill Complete can be driven to any depth, at any angle. Normally all models can be driven in Class 5 & 6 soils. The angle of anchor placement should match the angle of the pull.
When resistance is encountered, excessive pounding causes metal fatigue that may lead to breakage. Sub-surface rocks can prevent placement to required depth.
After the anchor is placed to the required depth, the drive rod is removed. Backfill the hole with dirt and tap firmly with the drive rod.
Note: Instead of backfilling with dirt, inject concrete into the anchor hole before 'planing'. When the concrete sets, it forms a plug above the anchor for additional soil resistance. This method is used to increase holding capacity of the Duckbill Complete.
