This skid steer auger drive attachment is hydraulically driven. If you've ever tried to auger a hole with a 3-point pto auger on a tractor vs a hydraulic auger on a skid steer you know how much more effective this can be in accomplishing your work. Flow rates are very important when considering how to approach your project so you need to consider what type of hydraulic system your machine is equipped with. The hydraulic pump of your skid steer produces pressure that determines the amount of torque available for digging. Depending on the type of soil you're working with will determine if speed or torque is more important. Generally, tougher soil conditions require more torque and sandy type soil conditions will find rotational speed to be more useful. Horsepower, torque and speed all have a correlation and understanding this relationship and the specifications of your machine will help you to be more successful in accomplishing your task.
Our most common auger sizes are 6 inch, 9 inch, 16 inch and 24 inch diameter. As a general rule, the smaller diameter augers are often run at a higher speed while larger diameter augers are run at a lower speed and higher torque because you're covering greater ground area. Typically, if you are digging a larger diameter and deeper hole you will prefer torque over speed. Rotational speed will have a direct effect on productivity. If you are rotating too quickly there will be a tendency to scrape the soil instead of actually digging and the scraping attributes to greater wear rates to the auger blades which decrease production.
