The Duckbill® Root Ball Kit is the anchoring solution of choice when guy pole or stake systems are not possible or desirable in locations such as playgrounds, parks or where sidewalk plantings are required.
The Duckbill® Root Ball Kit is specifically designed to hold the tree’s root ball firmly in place, with only the tree protruding above the ground. Each Root Ball Kit comes with 3 Duckbill anchors with D-ring and 1 strap with hand ratchet.
Saving time and labor, patented Duckbill® Anchors work like toggle bolts in the soil. Duckbill Anchors are driven into the ground (with no holes, no digging and no concrete), providing a safe and environmentally sensitive installation.
An upward pull on the anchor tendon rotates the Duckbill Anchor into a perpendicular “load lock” position in undisturbed soil. Duckbill Anchor systems offer the most effective, lightweight, economical solutions to any anchoring application, large or small.
- Fast, easy, safe installation
- No poles or stakes
- Completely underground
*One kit anchors one tree. Drive steel additional.
How to Select Power Drive Steel
- Determine the Duckbill Anchor to be installed.
- Measure hex size across flats of a shank that fits the hammer
- Measure shank length from top of hex to bottom of collar
- Call with special shank sizes or if you need more information on determining what drive steel is needed.
Each Duckbill Anchor has unique drive steel determined by the jack hammer and the anchor model.
Example: For a Model 88 Anchor with 1 in x 4 ¼ in shank, drive steel is PDS8810.
