Post Hole Digger - 1.7t Excavator

Excavator Hire 1.5t - Post Hole Digger
Really Dirty excavator being cleaned

PRODUCT DETAILS

We use the same Auger Drive for 1t, 1.7t and 3t tonne excavators. Why?

There are more powerful heads available for the 3 tonne excavator – but they spin much slower. This is OK if you ONLY have very tough ground. But if the ground is a bit softer – the extra speed you get from the higher flow on a 3 tonne excavator makes up for the “less power” than a more powerful auger drive.

Rates may change without notice

FOR YOUR SAFETY:
prevent tipping – machine not to be driven up slopes greater than 15° or across slopes greater than 10°.
No Damage Waiver applies to damage caused by use on excessive slopes.
