General Equipment Company introduces the 2350 Bor-Max Series earth augers and auger extension, offering ideal digging performance for small, hand-held type earth auger products. These augers are specially designed to drill through unconsolidated soil classifications, such as loams, sands, soft clays and granular rubbles.

The Bor-Max Series earth augers are engineered to be rugged, dependable and long lasting. This is evident in their use of heavy-gauged helicoid-type flighting and axle to better withstand bending and torque loads. Overall, the augers are built to be more aggressive with soil penetration, requiring less horsepower to dig a hole. Cupped flighting in combination with an increased flighting pitch is intentionally designed to maximize the amount of soil removed to produce cleaner holes with less spill-back.

The cast-steel boring head boasts an alloy-steel screw bit and heat-treated cutting blade that are easily field replaceable to ensure minimal downtime. The cutting blade’s outside edge extends past the boring head and flighting to extend service life of the auger. The augers come in nominal diameters ranging from two to eight inches (51 to 203 mm). The plain shaft-type auger extension can be used with all auger sizes and increases the digging depth by 15 inches (381 mm).

The Bor-Max series earth augers are designed specifically for use with General Equipment Company’s 200 Series EPIC hole digging products plus competitive products utilizing 1-inch diameter auger drive connections, and they represent over five decades of auger design expertise and field experience.
