Patent # 6,058,662
Magnum® Dual Cutting Edge (DCE) Blade™
This revolutionary patented blade design enables Magnum Helical Piles to penetrate difficult soils including very dense gravel, soils laden with occasional cobbles and even fill soils containing trash like trees, concrete debris, small to medium rocks, etc.

The patented DCE Blade can even penetrate sedimentary bedrock with standard penetration test (SPT) blow counts of up to 50 blows for 6 inches.

Read what Magnum installers are saying about the Magnum DCE Blade.

Mr. Joe Loudermilk
Partner – Extreme Technology’s, Atlanta, GA
“Magnum’s Helical Piles with the DCE Blade are the best helical piles I’ve ever installed. The blade design virtually eliminates any side-to-side (wobble) motion and the piers advance in our dense clay soils just like a screw into wood.”

Mr. Ross Kirk
Owner – Marco Concrete Lifting, Charleston, WV
“Hands down the best blade design for penetrating our dense West Virginia clay soils. The Magnum DCE blade even allows us to penetrate our shale formations without deflection or failure. The DCE blades are great!”

Mr. Jerry Lipe
Owner – Lipe Brothers Construction, Duluth, MN
“Our crews specify the Magnum DCE blades for our helical piles because the blade is able to penetrate the Laurentian Shield formations in our region. Often times we encounter these layers at very shallow depths, and the DCE blades will cut through it so we can get below frost depths and into good tight clays."
