ground screw anchors

I bought 8 anchors for the play set that flipped and the grand daughters trampoline. I’ve got one Milwaukee torque drill and a large Makita. They were using a cordless, but mine are corded.

I’ve had both drills for years. Never having a chance to use them Of late. Let’s see if they can turn the anchors. I’ve not used either in 15 years..

I've never used those. Do they just drill into the dirt, and they hold?
They should. The original ones on the play set are rebar. About 12” long. I would think these would be better..

I need to round up some of these projects. I want to pressure wash the swing set, fence, driveway and deck.
I used two of those things to hold my tomato plant gantry thing back against 50 mph winds last summer when the plants were over 6 feet tall. Six plants.

The gantry is just 1" electrical conduit, two verticals, wise radius 90° pieces and then a horizontal. No guy wires or anything. Didn't think I needed them.

But I went out in the storm to put those little 2" auger anchors in & tie some paracord as guy wires. Just two on the north side.

They held really well, which is surprising because the soil wasn't even compacted. I twisted them into the tilled garden soil by hand.
Wish I had known about these. Would have used on my Runner bean supports..
Will find out later today.

Storms were a coming and I didn’t have time to run cords , etc. I grabbed the impact from Oreilly(battery) and put them in. Pretty quick..
