For greater job site versatility, General Equipment Company’s DIG-R-TACH line of earth auger attachments is designed for use with both small and large hydraulic systems. The 671 DIG-R-TACH Series 16 is intended for skid steer loaders, small excavators, knuckleboom cranes and small backhoes, whereas the Series 24 is ideal for larger hydraulic systems found with backhoes and excavators.
Featuring a two-speed chain/sprocket drive and a 5- to 20-gpm (19 to 75.7 Lpm) hydraulic flow range, the Series 16 balances smaller flow volumes in proportion to auger diameters. The result is a cleaner hole with less loose soil and debris. For higher capacity drilling, the Series 24 operates in a 15 to 25 gpm (56.7 to 94.6 Lpm) hydraulic flow range and delivers a maximum drilling torque of 2,018 ft.-lbs. at 2,500 psi.
General Equipment Company’s 671 DIG-R-TACH series utilizes a drilling industry standard 2-in. (5 cm) hexagon auger drive system. This design eliminates excessive auger driveshaft wear. A complete line of earth augers up to 36 in. (91 cm) in diameter is available with Pengo-type, cast-steel boring heads and forged teeth for maximum digging performance. For additional drilling depth, full-flighted auger extensions can be added.
For those who prefer a round auger drive system, the 753 DIG-R-TACH series offers a 2 9/16-in. (6.5 cm) auger connection. Installation of all DIG-R-TACH models is simple with a dipper-stick mounting bracket.
