FAQs About Auger Bits
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 bits are interchangeable. Some restrictions or specifications may apply depending on the make and model of various bits or vehicular equipment.
