Visited Seventh hole few weeks ago, someone has added more bolts plus has managed to get a 12mm drill bit stuck in the ground..... seen this before, man I would feel very nervous using anchors set by the user of this driller!

That's my second Excalibur up there - not quite sure why they get stuck, I left another one of Cheryl's drop and it took 2 years to move it around, a nice Hilti too!
BTW msot of the bolts aroudn that drill bit are mine and ONLY used for backtying my tripod used in edge management.
Have no worries, I proof loaded my chemical anchors on top of the plateau using a load cell and applying a 10kN radial pull, didn't bother doing a pull out as most of the bolts are not used that way. THe 8-10mm mechanical on the nose is not mine nor would I use it as part of a rebelay, too risky.
Drop me a pm for anchor issues.
