Setting and Replacing Poles - Study Guide
: Brown Technical Book Store
Setting and Replacing Poles demonstrates how to set a new pole, and two methods of manual replacement of an existing pole. The most common method of setting a pole using power equipment is demonstrated first. Because power equipment may not always be available or may not be able to reach the job site, two manual methods of replacing poles are also demonstrated. Covers how to set a pole using a derrick, how to set a pole in a hole adjacent to an existing pole by rigging off the existing pole, and how to replace a pole with a new pole in the same hole.
