Auger Torque has announced the addition of the 100K Max Earth Drill in response to increasing market demand

Auger Torque, the leading manufacturer and global provider of earth moving attachments, has today announced the addition of the 100K Max Earth Drill in response to increasing market demand.

Engineered to work with excavators between 21 and 50 tonnes, it provides an impressive 100,000Nm of torque and 15RPM. The 100K Max is geared for high torque applications including, but not limited to, screw pile/anchor installation, large diameter drilling and core barrelling.

In December 2020, Auger Torque partnered with Keller Limited to install 104 helical piles at Southend Hospital, South East England, UK to support a new three-storey ward to assist with the COVID-19 crisis. Installation was carried out using a 22t excavator. The 100,000 max torque head attachment allowed Keller to install the piles with high torque capacities to a depth between 6m to 10m in the site specific ground conditions.
