  • Selecting The Correct Auger Drive Unit

    AUGER DRIVES SELECTION When selecting your auger drive, it is important to understand: 1. What flow & pressure the machine has. 2. What size augers are intended to be used. 3. What ground conditions will be drilled in. SELECTING THE CORRECT DRIVE FOR THE APPLICATION IS ESSENTIAL. Machine Flow – Determines the speed at which the auger will turn. By selecting your flow range & working across the chart you can see which drive is going to be the most suitable for the application you are performing. GENERAL PURPOSE EARTH DRILLING AND SMALLER AUGERS 55 - 65 RPM Smaller augers in general earth conditions need more speed. HEAVY EARTH, CLAY, SOFT CHALKY ROCKS 45 - 55 RPM Mid sizes augers / harder soils & compact clays ROCK AUGERS 20 - 45 RPM Large augers and fracturable rock. Drilling in rock is about power not speed. Too much speed creates too much heat & therefore will wear the teeth out faster. Too much speed will also not allow the teeth to rip into the rock to break it out. N.B. Effective drilling in rock requires down pressure & torque. Not all rock is drillable and having the right machine for the application is essential. Machine Pressure – Determines the amount of torque a machine will deliver The importance of torque with drilling augers – The larger the auger diameter the more torque (pressure) that will be needed.
