Default DIY helical piles

Has anyone had experience using DIY helical piles as an alternative foundation for a

yurt platform

? I've seen some discussion on professionally-installed ground screws, but I came across 50" helical piers manufactured by Pylex that can be levered in without machinery. We live in Central NY and I was hoping to find a foundation alternative to four foot sonotube piers to get below the frost line for a 24' yurt that wouldn't require a yard of concrete. These seem pretty slick, but maybe too good to be true - has anyone worked with these?
