FAQs About Auger Attachments

Auger bits can be made from a variety of materials, including steel and carbide. They are used to drill large-diameter holes in a variety of materials, including soil, metal and concrete. With size options from 9 inches up to 24 inches and heavy-duty carbide toothing, we have an auger bit that is well suited to your specific task. Whether you're in need of a post driver or a hydraulic auger system, we have the equipment you need to get the job done.

FAQs
What size auger bit do I need for a 4x4 fence post?

The recommended auger bit size for 4x4 fencing is a bit with a 6-inch diameter. You can use a larger bit; however, this results in an oversized hole that requires more stabilizing when anchoring the posts, so this is not recommended.

How deep can you drill with a skid steer auger bit?

Many skid steer auger bits have an average drilling depth of up to 6 feet. However, these depths can vary depending on the make and model of the skid steer.

Are auger bit attachments interchangeable?

In most cases, these different-sized bits are interchangeable on the same piece of equipment. Some restrictions or specifications may apply depending on the make and model of various bits or vehicular equipment. We encourage you to read instruction manuals thoroughly and consult our specialists with further questions. For further information on whether an auger bit attachment is compatible with a certain piece of equipment, contact our experts.
