New Post Hole Auger Is Self-Leveling
"It's the only 3-pt. mounted auger ever built that'll go in straight automatically," says inventor-manufacturer Bob Gilbert of Buffalo, Wyo. The self-leveling feature on his new Accu-Press post hole auger isn't the only feature that makes it unique in the industry. "It has a high-speed auger with precise down pressure control that eliminates auger corkscrewing or sheared pins in hard or frozen ground."
The auger is catching on fast with pole barn contractors, fence contractors, and others who need perfectly straight holes. To operate, the tip of the auger is placed on the spot to be dug and the operator hydraulically levels sideways with a built-in level. As the auger starts digging, the 3-pt. linkage automatically keeps the hole straight up and down.
Gilbert says his auger digs twice as fast as others on the market due to its high auger speed and down pressure control. He runs the auger at 250 to 540 rpm's and adjusts down pressure to in. downfall per second, depending on conditions, and the auger maintains that steady rate. A 50 hp. tractor is recommended for the 14-in. dia. auger.
The new auger sells for right at $3,000.
