For over 50 years, the versatile Little Beaver mechanical Earth drill has been the #1 choice of rental store owners, fencing contractors, and other professionals who require a one-man auger that is safe and simple to operate. Thanks to its patented torque tube, Little Beaver has eliminated the kickback found in competitive augers. This has made one-man drilling safe and productive.
|Little Beaver builds its own heavy-duty transmissions that feature o-ring seals, heat treated shafts and bearings mounted in an oil bath, and cooling fins for quick heat dissipation.||Engine throttle control and the on/off switch are conveniently located on the left handle. Padded handles are ergonomically designed for less fatiguing operation.||A reliable centrifugal clutch slips when a buried object is encountered or the auger is overloaded. This protects the flexible drive cable, transmission gears, and shafts from damage.||Little Beaver offers a complete line of snap-on augers in both 36″ and 42″ lengths. Diameters range from 1.5″ to 16″. Little Beaver also offers snap-on extensions in both full flighted and tube configurations.|
|Little Beaver’s horizontal boring options easily convert your earth drill into a cost effective horizontal boring machine. Sidewalk auger kits and water drilling kits available.||A convenient snap button holds the auger securely to the transmission adaptor and lets you easily connect or remove augers and extensions without pins or tools.||Little Beaver Earth drills are incredibly fast. Operating at 360 RPM, our augers rotate much faster than competitive units. This increases your drilling productivity and results in cleaner holes.||Customize your Little Beaver with a variety of engine, wheel and carriage options, including roll cages and rick-sha carriers.|
|Standard augers are equipped with hard-faced, replaceable points and cutting blades. Most blades are reversible for added value.||Use Little Beaver’s carbide blades when drilling hard clay, frozen ground, asphalt or hard pan soils. The carbide blade replaces both the standard point and cutting blade.||Heavy-duty blades quickly cut through rocky soils. These augers operate most efficiently at a slower RPM speed and are recommended for 20:1 or 13:1 gear ratios.|
