The Heavy Duty Auger Power Kit was designed to core through those dreaded frozen or extremely tough soil conditions using a power drill. The combination of the spiral corkscrew shape of the auger and using a power drill dramatically increases the speed of augering, and reduces the effort it takes. The sharp reinforced carbide tip on the auger makes it ideal for tough conditions.
Included is a hex adapter drill attachment that hooks up to any 1/2" power drill so you can easily chew through tough frozen.
The heavy duty spiral auger is constructed of high-grade nickel chrome plated steel for extra rust, tarnish and corrosion resistance. It is additionally tipped in carbide to make it even stronger. The carbide tip is extremely sharp and tough for use in hard conditions. This 12" auger is 1 1/4" in diameter and has a double twist with 2 1/4" twist. The auger sections are 8" long with 4" shanks.
The extension rods included in the kit can be used together or separately depending on your sampling needs. When both extension rods are used the auger probe extends to 36" to save your back from bending and allows for deeper sampling.
