Pengo Style Point Vs Pengo Style Carbide Point
It is important when digging a hole with an auger that you select the proper blade or point needed for your job. Choosing the correct additions to your auger will not only help speed up the digging process but will also save the life and use of your auger. We understand it can be difficult to distinguish what blade or point is needed, often, these parts look similar and have names that look a lot alike.
An example of this would be Pengo Style Point and the Pengo Style Carbide Point. Both have almost identical names but are built for different tasks.
Pengo Style Point
The Pengo Style Point is a heavy-duty point that fits nicely onto our Little Beaver augers and is designed to dig into ordinary soil. Meaning it is best used for areas that do not have too hard or too soft dirt.
Pengo Style Carbide Point
In contrast, the Pengo Style Carbide Point is intended for harsher areas where the soil is denser and may have debris. The Pengo Style Carbide Point is crafted with pieces of carbide at its tip so it is able to easily work through the hard earth to help the auger dig. It is often dipped in wax to prevent damage prior to use. (Notice the wax on the Pengo Style Carbide Point)
