The Digger Truck & Lighting Pole Bases

Posted by Tonia Nifong on Wed, Nov 19, 2014

Berwick Electric Co.’s (BEC) electricians recently broke out the digger truck for a unique project involving the installation of helical bases for 54 lighting poles.

 “The bases work like giant screws. Our electricians attach an adapter to the digger truck, and that allows us to bolt the pole base onto the digger truck’s auger. After this, the pole base is screwed into the earth,” BEC Project Manager Daniel Mondragon explained. “We aim to be done with this project by the end of December.”

To capture the project in motion, BEC Electrician Michael Lucas strapped a GoPro camera to the digger truck. You can get a glimpse of the project by watching the short video below.
