Home \ Products \ Earth Auger Drive Units \ Skid Steer Earth Auger Systems Skid Steer Earth Auger Systems Premier offers three types of skid steer loader hydraulic earth auger drive units: Medium Duty, Heavy Duty and Heavy Duty High Flow. You’ll find our Medium Duty earth auger drive units ideal for times when an actual industrial grade auger isn’t needed. On the other hand, our Heavy Duty models have all the industrial grade strength required to handle the toughest work conditions and are manufactured to hold up for decades. Our Heavy Duty High Flow earth auger drive units are crafted for use specifically with high flow machines. No third drain line is required for any of Premier’s augers All units are engineered and designed to handle the higher hydraulic operating pressures of today’s skid steer loaders and compact track loaders Universal Skid Steer Mount is industry standard for skid steers but we do offer late model and obsolete mounts for those without the universal style mount Available output shafts come in 2-inch hexagon, 2-1/2-inch hexagon and 2-9/16-inch round designs The chart below lists our standard auger models and options. Keep in mind, though, that Premier will custom-design and build augers for your individual skid steer loader or compact track loader. Just give us the specs.

When it comes to auger bits, Premier manufactures an assortment of them, letting you choose the one that best fits the job at hand and the quality you desire: Medium duty single flight- the most cost-effective solution Medium duty double flight - a standard auger bit; our best-selling style Heavy duty double flight- a more aggressive bit for tougher drilling conditions We design and manufacture specialty bits as well. These include... Tree augers featuring a two-diameter design that produces a tapered hole for tree planting, and Rock augers, which offer carbide bullet-tooth, hard-faced wear parts, a heavy-duty center tube, and thicker flighting The flighting on all Premier augers is fully welded to the center tube, not stitch-welded as some of our competitors do. Our stock standard for augers is a 4-foot overall length, but we also build 3-foot, 5-foot, and 6-foot custom augers to meet specific needs. Connecting collars are available in 2-inch round, 2-9/16-inch round, 2-inch hexagon and 2½-inch hexagon configurations.
