How To Repair or Replace A Carbide Blade Tip on an Auger

There are several benefits to regularly replacing the blades and points of your auger. By replacing the blade, you protect the life of the auger, increase performance, and reduce digging time. Having sharp auger points and blades means the auger can cut through various levels of soil faster and with much less force. With less force and time involved in drilling, you preserve the life of the machinery as well.

Now that you know why replacing the points and blades is important, let's investigate carbide blades and how to replace them.

What are Carbide Blades?

Little Beaver carbide blades are a unique set of auger attachments that combine point and blade. This single-blade attachment is a high-intensity blade designed for abrasive, compact, rocky, and hard pan or frozen soils. The carbide blade is mounted to the bottom of standard augers, replacing both a standard point and blade. If the blades are dull, there is really no way to repair them and achieve the same performance.
