Auger Torque launch the 100,000 Max Earth Drill to Meet Market Demand
Engineered to work with excavators between 21 and 50 tonnes, it provides an impressive 100,000Nm of torque and 15RPM. The 100K Max is geared for high torque applications including, but not limited to, screw pile/anchor installation, large diameter drilling and core barrelling.
The Auger Torque engineering team have ensured the earth drill offers maximum versatility and whilst maintaining an optimal weight of just over 1 ton, therefore in no way sacrificing any of the reliability expected from their range of earth drills. Testing of the 100K Max, for both wide and deep drilling applications, has been extensive across parts of Australia, UK, and South Africa. Testing in harsh environments, including rocky ground, ensures this new earth drill is superior to all other options currently in the market.
This new earth drill boasts all the key features and benefits the market have come to expect from Auger Torque, including:
• Epicyclic Gearbox – Torque multiplication with durability and reliability
• Axial Piston Motor – High speed with high torque, up to 15rpm
• Single Piece Non-Dislodgement Shaft – Patented safety feature with lifetime warranty
• 150mm Hex Shaft – Bigger shaft, plus our hex shaft stronger than competitor’s square
“We were getting more and more requests for a high torque earth drill at an optimal weight, particularly with the growing requirement in the market for screw piling and core barrelling applications. We are extremely fortunate to have had the likes of Keller in the UK and Jordan Rail in Australia help us test the product and really put it through its paces. This combined with rigorous factory testing we were able to ascertain how hard it can work and for how long and so we are confident in its capability and excited about the opportunities this presents” – Kelvin Hamilton, Head of Auger Torque, Australia
