Anchor Dog Driver Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I use this product on my job site?
The Anchor Dog Driver will save time and effort which allows
wedge anchors to be set faster and the user can set more before becoming
fatigued. The driver is easy to use and sets anchors without damaging
them which eliminates the very time consuming process of repairing them
or setting new anchors next to the ones that can't be repaired. As
contractors we are in this to make money and time is money.
Will my Rotary Hammer drill have the power to drive in Wedge
Anchors with this tool?
Our crews use the Bosch Bull Dog Extreme 1 1/8" Rotary Hammer with 2.4 lbs. of impact energy
which works with all drivers. When we are setting large quantities of 5/8" and 3/4" anchors we prefer
the larger 1 1/4" Rotary Hammer which sets them faster and applies more torque to the nut. If your
drill has trouble hammering in anchors, check your drill for wear and the hole for dust or debris.
Why is it important that my Rotary Hammer Drill has a Integral
There are 2 reasons, first is safety as it helps minimize torque
reaction that prevents the drill from spinning out of your hands as the
anchor engages. Second it helps to prevent over torquing.
How do I know what size driver to use?
Luckily all major manufactures of wedge anchors have the same size nut that corresponds to
to the anchor shaft size. 3/8" wedge anchors have a 9/16" nut, 1/2" anchors have a 3/4" nut,
5/8 anchors have a 15/16" nut and 3/4" anchors have 1 1/8" nuts.
