For greater jobsite versatility, General Equipment Company™s DIG-R-TACH® line allows for use with both small and large hydraulic systems. Ideal for skid steer loaders, small excavators, knuckleboom cranes and small backhoes, the 671 DIG-R-TACH® Series 16 earth drilling attachment is intended for smaller hydraulic systems, whereas the Series 24 is designed for larger hydraulic systems found with backhoes and excavators.
Featuring a two-speed chain/sprocket drive and a 5 to 20 GPM hydraulic flow range, the Series 16 balances smaller flow volumes in proportion to auger diameters. The result is a cleaner hole with less loose soil and debris. For higher capacity drilling, the Series 24 operates in a 15 to 25 GPM hydraulic flow range and delivers a maximum drilling torque of 2,018 foot-pounds at 2,500 PSI.
General Equipment Company™s 671 DIG-R-TACH series utilizes a drilling industry standard two-inch hexagon auger drive system. This design eliminates excessive auger driveshaft wear. A complete line of earth augers up to 36 inches in diameter is available with Pengo®-type, cast-steel boring heads and forged teeth for maximum digging performance. For additional drilling depth, full-flighted auger extensions can be added.
For those that prefer a round auger drive system, the 753 DIG-R-TACH series offers a 2 9/16-inch auger connection. Installation of all DIG-R-TACH models is simple with a dipper-stick mounting bracket.
In business for more than 50 years, General Equipment Company is a family-owned manufacturer of earth augers, ventilation blowers, asphalt cutters and surface preparation equipment.
