Earth Auger Teeth and Wear Parts 09/02/2015It’s hard to believe that we’re now into early fall and have all endured the hectic pace of spring and summer. For those of us that live and work in the north it won’t be long before frost and frozen ground become an issue. Regardless of where you live and work now is the perfect time to take a look at your post hole digger’s teeth and fishtail point. All too often, we see earth augers come in to our plant from local dealers and rental yards that the teeth are either worn out or completely missing which leads to costly repairs. Keep in mind that not only are the repairs costly but the down time and losses of productivity are probably more costly. You would be surprised at how quickly you can ruin a perfectly good auger bit by continuing to dig with worn out teeth or no teeth. It’s important to keep a close eye on the outer most teeth on any style of earth auger bit. These auger teeth take the majority of the abuse and will wear out faster than the inside teeth. Standard post hole digger teeth and fishtail points are very affordable so we encourage everyone to keep a few on hand at all times. Also, keep in mind that Premier offers their dealers earth auger teeth and fishtail point upgrades. If your ground conditions are wearing down teeth quickly you may want to think about using a hard-faced tooth or even a carbide tooth. These options can add a tremendous amount of life to auger teeth and fishtail points.
