Bobcat Company's 35PH and 50PH planetary drive augers are compatible with approved models of Bobcat skid steer loaders, compact track loaders, all-wheel steer loaders and compact excavators.
Expanding the lineup of Bobcat augers, these units are designed with a high-torque gearbox, allowing them to deliver more power for difficult installations at deeper digging depths and for working in tough conditions such as rock, clay, coral and frost. Greater torque can be especially beneficial to excavating, grading and site development contractors, as well as beef cattle producers and landscape professionals installing fence, anchors and screw pylons.
Both the 35PH and 50PH planetary augers are 11.5 in. (29 cm) wide and 39.6 in. (100.6 cm) long and can dig to depths of 73 in. (185 cm) without an extension. An optional adjustable inner extension is available to increase the digging depth an additional 48 in. (122 cm). The 35PH planetary auger provides 4,177 ft.-lbs. of torque at 3,500 psi, while the 50HP offers 5,291 of torque at 3,500 psi.
Increased Digging Performance
With the additional torque that a planetary drive delivers, it can dig deep holes more efficiently to outperform a direct drive auger in tough applications. Featuring an efficient displacement design, the 30PH and 50PH augers have smaller drive housings — less than 12 in. (30.5 cm) long. This smaller housing allows it to follow the bit all the way into the hole to achieve deeper depths. The two-piece shaft design ensures maximum side load ratings without increasing the load on bearings, protecting productivity and uptime.
