Auger Torque recently announced the addition of the 100K Max Earth Drill in response to what they say is increasing market demand

Engineered to work with excavators between 21 and 50 tonnes, the company says its latest earth drill provides an impressive 100,000Nm of torque and 15rpm.

The 100K Max has been designed for high torque applications, including, but not limited to, screw pile/anchor installation, large diameter drilling, and core barrelling. The Auger Torque engineering team say they have ensured the earth drill offers maximum versatility while maintaining an optimal weight of just over one tonne, and, therefore, in no way sacrifices any of the reliability expected from their range of earth drills.

Testing of the 100K Max, for both wide and deep drilling applications, had been extensive across parts of Australia, UK, and South Africa, with the drill working in harsh environments, including rocky ground. As such, the company says they believe the new earth drill is superior to all other options currently in the market.

Auger Torque says the 100K Max Earth Drill has all the key features and benefits the market have come to expect from the company, including:

  • Epicyclic Gearbox: Torque multiplication with durability and reliability
  • Axial Piston Motor: High speed with high torque, up to 15rpm
  • Single Piece Non-Dislodgement Shaft: Patented safety feature with a lifetime warranty
  • 150mm Hex Shaft: Bigger shaft, plus our hex shaft stronger than competitor’s square

Kelvin Hamilton, head of Auger Torque, Australia, says, "We were getting more and more requests for a high torque earth drill at an optimal weight, particularly with the growing requirement in the market for screw piling and core barrelling applications.

"We were extremely fortunate to have had the likes of Keller in the UK and Jordan Rail in Australia help us test the product and really put it through its paces. Combined with rigorous factory testing, we were able to ascertain how hard it can work and for how long, and so we’re confident in its capability and excited about the opportunities this presents."
The 100K Max is now available for pre-order at all Auger Torque sites around the world and via their dealer network.
