Digga’s PD4 to PD7 range of drilling auger drives are ideally suited for Backhoes and Excavators with a flow between 55 to 115 lpm. Innovative design allows the gearbox to go down the hole to maximise drilling depth without extensions, eliminating downtime and minimises maintenance, optimising your returns. Digga planetary auger drives are fitted with Digga / Eaton bell motors specially designed for drilling and augering in most ground conditions.

  • Ability to add Swing Control
    Digga’s patented Swing Control System dampens the auger drive / auger swing allowing operators to shake dirt off their augers and travelling around sites safer and easier. SCS also greatly improves productivity by making it easier to return the auger into the hole.
  • Top Mounted Hose Ports
    Angled fittings allow the hoses to come out the top of the hood so they are out of the way and permits the drive to fit down the hole on 2k motor drives.
