General Equipment Company’s Model 471 DIG-R-TACH hydraulically-powered earth drilling attachment system is specifically designed for use with lower-auxiliary hydraulic system flow rates found on popular models of compact loader backhoes, mini-excavators and compact utility loaders.

The 471 DIG-R-TACH system enhances the versatility of equipment by allowing it to become a practical and productive option for many hole-digging projects. The system features a universal mounting bracket that conforms to a wide variety of loader and excavator bucket configurations. Mounted quickly and easily by one person, the attachment requires no special tools, drilling or welding as the supplied bracket grips tightly with a positive locking system.

Featuring an industry standard 2-in. (5 cm) hexagon auger drive connection, the 471 DIG-R-TACH is better able to accommodate existing augers found in most equipment fleets. The units can utilize the same 4400 Series earth augers that are used with the General Equipment 310 and 330 Series portable hole diggers. The popular 4400 Series features time-proven heavy-duty construction and Pengo-type boring head configurations.

Augers are available from 2- to 24-in. (5 to 61 cm) diameters. When used with the 471 DIG-R-TACH, the augers produce a clean, usable 4-ft. (1.2 m) deep hole. To increase drilling depth, a full line of flighted and non-flighted earth auger extensions is available.

The mounting bracket allows the 471 DIG-R-TACH to be center mounted on the bucket, providing enhanced operator visibility while drilling. Additionally, the center-mount configuration distributes drilling stress to the loader arms more effectively than side-mount alternatives, according to the manufacturer.
