Earth Augers

Power and precision for all types of drilling

Selection Guide

Earth augers are invaluable tools for boring holes in agricultural applications, for planting vines and trees, setting greenhouse supports and fences, and also in urban applications for street lighting works.

For small boring operations the ideal tools are the medium displacement earth augers (up to 50 cm3), such as Efco model TR 1551 with displacement of 50.2 cm3 and a single flute bit with diameter of between 8 and 20 cm. The ideal tool for one-operator jobs thanks to the commands all accessible with just one hand.

For deep and large diameter drillholes and for drilling into harder ground, calling for the presence of two operators, we recommend our professional earth augers with high displacement engine (up to 90 cm3). Model TR 1585 R is equipped with a double handle that can be folded for transport purposes, a reverse gear and automatic safety switch. Efco professional earth augers are supplied as standard with an adapter so they can also use drill bits from 8 to 50 cm in diameter.

Keeping your Efco earth augers in tip-top condition is simple and does not call for any special technical skills. Just follow these simple steps:
 

  • Clean the air filter every 10 hours of operation or replace it if it is excessively soiled or damaged.
  • Check the condition of the fuel filter periodically or replace it if necessary.
  • Periodically clean the cylinder fins with a brush or compressed air in order to maintain a good level of cooling efficiency.
  • Clean the spark plug frequently and check the electrodes gap.
  • After every 100 hours of operation change the grease in the gearbox.
  • Keep a constant check on the general condition of the bit.
  • Check the bit flute and pilot tip; if worn, sharpen or replace.
