General Equipment Company [www.generalequip.com] has introduced the 2350 Bor-Max™ Series earth augers and auger extension, offering digging performance for small, hand-held type earth auger products. These augers are specially designed to drill through unconsolidated soil classifications, such as loams, sands, soft clays and granular rubbles.
The Bor-Max Series earth augers are engineered with heavy-gauged helicoid-type flighting and axle to better withstand bending and torque loads. Overall, the augers are built to be aggressive with soil penetration, requiring less horsepower to dig a hole. Cupped flighting in combination with an increased flighting pitch is intentionally designed to maximize the amount of soil removed to produce cleaner holes with less spill back.
The cast-steel boring head features an alloy-steel screw bit and heat-treated cutting blade that are easily field replaceable to ensure minimal downtime. The cutting blade’s outside edge extends past the boring head and flighting to extend service life of the auger. The augers come in nominal diameters ranging from 2” to 8” (51 to 203 mm). The plain shaft-type auger extension can be used with all auger sizes and increases the digging depth by 15” (381 mm).
The Bor-Max series earth augers are designed specifically for use with General Equipment Company’s 200 Series EPIC™ hole digging products plus competitive products utilizing 1” diameter auger drive connections.
