Dirt and Rock augers for skid-steers and mini-excavators
Take on the toughest drilling applications with a Star Industries Heavy Duty Auger. Just like our rugged planetary drive units, these augers are constructed from heavy duty, high-grade materials giving them the strength to handle any drilling job (even solid rock).
Model 160A-R Our most rugged auger for your most difficult drilling conditions. These augers are designed for solid rock, concrete, fractured rock, frozen ground and compacted soils. Larger 8″ to 36″ dia. augers feature a bolt in 1¾” shaft pilot, reinforced ¾” bottom flight boring head with Rockwell 65 hard facing, replaceable carbide bullet teeth and double flighting on 3½” high strength tube. Smaller 6″ dia. augers feature a welded pilot, replaceable carbide bullet teeth and double flighting on 3½” high strength tube. Available in 6″ – 36″ diameter.
I needed to set fence post and was met with solid rock so I ordered This Bit and it’s doing the job perfectly. Just make sure you order extra Carbide Teeth because they will wear out if it’s really rocky.
