General Equipment™s 471 DIG-R-TACH® Designed for Backhoes, Mini-Excavators and Compact Loaders
General Equipment Co.™s Model 471 DIG-R-TACH® Hydraulically-Powered Earth Drilling Attachment System is specifically designed for use with lower-auxiliary hydraulic system flow rates found on popular models of compact loader backhoes, mini-excavators and compact utility loaders.
The 471 DIG-R-TACH system enhances the versatility of compact loader backhoes and mini-excavators by allowing them to become practical and productive options for many hole-digging projects. The system features a universal mounting bracket that readily conforms to a wide variety of loader bucket configurations. Mounted quickly and easily by one person, the 471 DIG-R-TACH requires no special tools, drilling or welding as the supplied bracket grips tightly with a positive locking system.
Now featuring an industry standard 2-inch hexagon auger drive connection, the 471 DIG-R-TACH is better able to accommodate existing augers found in most equipment fleets. The 471 DIG-R-TACH can utilize the same 4400 Series earth augers that are used with the General Equipment 310 and 330 Series portable hole diggers. The popular 4400 Series features time-proven heavy-duty construction and Pengo®-type boring head configurations.
Augers are available from 2-inch to 24-inch diameters. When used with the 471 DIG-R-TACH, the augers produce a clean, usable 4-foot deep hole. To increase drilling depth, a full line of flighted and non-flighted earth auger extensions is available.
The mounting bracket allows the 471 DIG-R-TACH to be center mounted on the bucket, providing unequaled operator visibility while drilling. Additionally, the center-mount configuration distributes drilling stress to the loader arms more effectively than competitive side-mount alternatives.
In business for more than 50 years, General Equipment Co. is a family-owned manufacturer of earth augers, ventilation blowers, asphalt cutters and surface preparation equipment.
