Dig-R-Tach Series Offers Versatility

Construction Equipment Guide

General Equipment Company’s Dig-R-Tach line allows for use with both small and large hydraulic systems. For use with skid steer loaders, small excavators, knuckleboom cranes and small backhoes, the 671 Dig-R-Tach Series 16 earth drilling attachment is intended for smaller hydraulic systems, whereas the Series 24 is designed for larger hydraulic systems, found with backhoes and excavators.

Featuring a two-speed chain/sprocket drive and a 5 to 20 gpm (19 to 76 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, according to the manufacturer.

For higher capacity drilling, the Series 24 operates in a 15 to 25 gpm (57 to 95 Lpm) hydraulic flow range and delivers a maximum drilling torque of 2,018 ft.-lbs. at 2,500 psi (172 bar).

General Equipment Company’s 671 Dig-R-Tach series utilizes a 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 that prefer a round auger drive system, the 753 Dig-R-Tach series offers a 2.6-in. (6.5 cm) auger connection. Installation of all Dig-R-Tach models is simple with a dipper-stick mounting bracket.
