Considerations when renting a auger

How do you know what auger is right for your needs? One of the first things you have to do is think about the number of holes that you will need to drill, as well as the size. Make sure the auger you choose can fit the bit that you need, and that you can rent or lease that size bit, as well. Consider the engine size, as well as the features of the auger. Keep in mind that because there are so many different types of augers, there will be a vast range of different features. When you are renting one, be sure to check out the specific features it offers, such as shock absorption, types of attachments, and the ease of operation.

Features of augers

Many different types of augers exist today, so it is important that you know exactly what type is needed for your job. Some of the augers are manual, but these tend not to be a good choice for those in the power utility industry, as they are not fast enough or powerful enough in many cases. However, they are a good choice for those who might be building a fence on their property or who are looking for an ice auger for ice fishing. For the power and utility fields, though, better options are available.
You could choose to use one of the handheld augers that utilizes a gas-powered engine, or one that features an electric motor. In addition to the handheld options, you can also find even larger augers that can be attached to equipment, such as tractors. Most of the augers on the market today are made from metal. However, there are some plastic augers available, too, which have the benefit of a lower coefficient of friction and resistance to corrosion and abrasion.

How augers work

Augers have drill bits that help to remove the earth quickly and easily as the machine spins, and can make it much faster and easier to create the necessary holes. 

About augers

An auger is a type of drilling device used for a range of purposes. They are used in the power and utility industry to drill into the earth, drilling holes for posts. Other types of augers are used for cleaning out pipes, and still other augers can be used to bore through ice.

Auger Manufacturers

You can choose augers from many different manufacturers today. Some of the popular manufacturers of these devices include Earthquake, Mole-Master, Redwood Plastics Corp., and Conveyor Engineering and Manufacturing.
