Augers are used in construction, fencing, and landscaping. The drive unit can have a range of augers fitted ranging from 150mm to 1000mm and extensions can be added to achieve deeper digging depths.

Standard dig depth without an extension is 1.2m. With an extension, digging depth can reach up to 3m.

Augers can drill into the majority of ground conditions. If you require augers for drilling into rocks, sandstone, concrete, or similar harder grounds, more powerful units and specially adapted augers are available.
