What is an Auger
An auger is often used to drill holes in the ground but works on a range of materials and surfaces. Consisting of a blade called a “flighting”, an auger rotates its blades, cutting, scraping or siphoning out either the soil or ice. Often found on sites, an auger is a popular tool in gardening, landscaping and excavating jobs. These spiral shaped tools have been around for centuries as they are one of the most dependable and versatile tools on the market.
Types of Augers
There are a range of different augers available, suited to varying tasks. Made from different materials for different substances and surfaces, an auger can be used manually by hand or attached to a tractor with an electric motor. Each auger is suited to the job at hand and cannot be interchangeable; you can’t use an ice auger for earth.
