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. We encourage you to read instruction manuals thoroughly and consult our specialists with further questions.
