Augers are used in landscaping, fencing and construction. The drive unit can have a range of flytes (augers) fitted ranging from 150mm to 1000mm and extensions (up to 3m) can be added to achieve deeper digging depths. Standard dig depth without extensions is 1.2m.

Augers can drill into most ground conditions; more powerful units and specially adapted flytes are available for harder ground (rocks, sandstone, concrete).


  • Drilling holes of various widths into most ground conditions
  • Excavation foundations for concrete
  • Pre drilling fence post holes
  • Available to fit 1 to 30+ ton excavators

Excavator requirements: Standard breaker circuit or Dual flow circuit.
