The 4450 Series earth augers feature a new, simpler configuration for attaching the screw bit, which speeds up the installation process and greatly reduces the risk of damage to the earth auger, the company says.
Unlike traditional earth auger designs, the 4450 Series does not include a drive lug for attaching the screw bit. Instead, the company’s new screw bit design has a male shaft, which slides into the end of the earth auger. This helps to eliminate the chance of the screw bit breaking, as well as the resulting damage to the auger. Additionally, the augers are cast into a one-piece, integral assembly from steel to further increase service life. Optional tooth configurations are available to meet a wide range of job applications in different soil types and classifications.
