Platipus Anchors suggests that, for contractors, the following considerations are the most important things to remember when it comes to tree anchors.

How long does it take to install a rootball fixing system?

Once the hole is dug and the tree is ready to place into its pit, the job should take approximately 15-30 minutes, depending upon kit size and soil conditions.

How will the sail area affect my choice of kit?

Consideration must be given when the tree is in leaf, as extra wind loading may require larger anchorage.

What tools do we need?

1. A drive rod (HDR or PDR of suitable size)
2. A tension lever
3. A Plati-Hook (or stressing jack for RF3P/ RF4P)
4. Postrammer, sledgehammer or mechanical Breaker for powered installation

What tools are not available from Platipus?

1. Wire cutters / scissors
2. Sledgehammer

Note: Due to settlement of the tree, re-tensioning is highly recommended after planting.
