    Looking for Ground Anchor Auger Style

    Morning All and a very festive seasons to you.

    Just wondering if anyone knows where about I could locate auger style ground anchors like the ones shown? Been trying across NZ and striking out each time.

    Try RD1, Wrightsons or similar Horticulture suppliers as these have been used on Kiwifruit orchard rows to strain vine wires.

    Try the power companies. They use them for power pole anchors. They will have used ones lying around the yard.

    Hi MSL, trying to set up a ratchet line in the back garden that can be tensioned. Better known as slacklining for the little guy of course.

    Deadman and cable just have to dig the hole, if you dont have a "body" a half round works fine.

    Outlook has a great search function - took a few seconds to find this in an old email -
    I bought some back in 09 from The Cable Shop – 44 Gallagher Drive in Hamilton
    They have a 175 screw plate, a 20mm shaft that is 1.8m long – cost $65 plus GST each
    Good luck
