Go ahead, auger in anger, it won’t break

It seems new fence lines always find a way to run across the toughest, hardest, most highly compacted rocky soil in sight. The perfect conditions to break your auger drive.

When running a new fence line, the last thing you want to hear is the clank of your auger drive busting and locking up.

Glenn Danuser says he has a solution. Build it stronger.

His new EP Earth Auger has a planetary gear drive with 42 percent more output torque strength than competitors’ augers.

The new EP features an American designed planetary gear drive and motor rated up to 3,500 p.s.i., delivering excellent torque for drilling through hard, compacted surfaces.

Danuser says, “The EP Auger is built with a Danuser planetary manufactured to our engineering design that demands 42 percent more output torque strength. We’re offering models ranging from six to 35 gallons per minute and from 1,500 to 3,500 p.s.i., making this a very versatile tool for farmers.”

Hoses are routed out of the top of the drive unit, secured with bulkhead nuts, to allow for better hose protection when deeper digging in tighter spots.

All drive units ship with 45 degree fittings installed. A hose holder spring kit is included on skid-steer and offset tractor loader mounts. The output spindle is a two-inch hex shaft.

Mounts are available for skid-steer loaders, front-end loaders, backhoes and excavators.

The skid-steer quick attach mount fits both skid-steers and front-end loaders. Quick attach mounts offer an adjustable cradle with two positions for transporting at either 15 degree or 30 degree angles.

The planetary features easily accessible check and fill plugs for simple maintenance.
