For greater job site versatility, General Equipment Company’s DIG-R-TACH line allows for use with both small and large hydraulic systems. Ideal for 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. 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.

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 that 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, according to the manufacturer.
