Carbide Blade Vs Standard Auger Replacement Blade
Protect your Little Beaver auger from damage and preserve its quality for years to come by choosing the correct blade for the job you are completing. Some customers may not know that the auger is not what cuts through the soil when digging. Instead, blades and points are added to the bottom of augers to bore through the soil, allowing the auger to pull the dirt up through its flight.
There are many factors that go into choosing the proper blade for your auger. The most important is what type of soil you will drill into. Dense and rocky soil will need a different blade than sandier soil. It can be hard to distinguish which blade is needed for the job. Customers commonly confuse two blades, the Standard Auger Replacement Blade and the Carbide Blade, with Hardware for Snap-On Augers.
Standard Auger Blade
The Standard Auger Replacement Blade is a sturdy blade that is made for drilling into average soil. The blade is also unique due to its ability to be reversible. When one side of the blade becomes worn down, simply flip it to the other side to use. This blade helps to dig into the dirt to protect the auger from harmful damage.
Carbide Auger Blade
The Carbide Blade with Hardware for Snap-On Augers is a higher intensity blade. This blade was designed to tackle rough, frozen, and rocky earth. Not only will this blade help you to dig holes efficiently, but it will also protect your auger from wear and tear. This blade also is able to take the place for both standard point and side point cutting blades, to make life a little easier.
