General Equipment Company's M235 two-man hole digger is well-suited for a range of hole digging applications in various soil types.

The M235 exhibits General Equipment's focus on better engineered-in ergonomics. For instance, it features new polymeric Gen 2 Comfort-Flex operator handle technology with integrated flex-type handle grips, which takes the next step in absorbing torque-related kickback forces and damping machine vibrations. Operators will benefit from the reduced physical stress, strain and fatigue normally experienced when digging holes. It also is a lighter weight, more compact unit — 30 percent lighter than other General two-man hole digger models — making it ideal for the rental/DIY market.

Featuring a Briggs & Stratton 190cc, 4.5-hp gas engine, the M235 delivers a maximum drilling torque of 154 ft. lbs. The newly designed, heavy duty, oil-cooled transmission includes a centrifugal all-metal clutch and machine-cut spur gears with a 1-in. (2.5 cm) diameter output shaft. The new transmission lock feature allows for easy removal of a stuck auger from the ground without disconnecting the power unit from the auger and helping prevent damage to both.

In addition to a wide range of high-end features, a full line of augers in 2-1/4-, 3-1/4- 4-, 6-, 8-, 10-, and 12-in. (5.7, 8.2, 10, 15, 20, 25.4 and 30.5 cm) diameters are available providing an effective digging depth of 30 in. (76.2 cm). A 15-in. (38 cm) long extension also is available for deeper hole digging applications.
