Auger bit choices

  • SQ-Series Auger bits, standard duty digging in light to moderate ground conditions.
  • TSQ-Series Auger bits, have smaller diameter auger flighting on the bottom which leaves space for root balls.
  • RSQ-Series Auger bits, for digging holes in fractureable rock and coral.
  • LP-Series Auger bits, for harder, drier digging conditions and compact soils.
  • LX-Series Auger bits, for use with larger, more powerful auger drive units, under tough and abrasive conditions.

Auger Extensions


  • Auger extensions are used when you need to dig deeper holes. Various lengths 14" to 60" to choose from.
