Digga tips - the importance of vertical alignment when drilling.
Digga auger drives are pendulum drills designed to hang freely from the excavator mount. Excessive side load may result in bent auger flights, pipe and hubs as well as potential damage to the auger drive shaft, seals and gearbox.
Excessive side load may also cause socket and pilot breakage especially when drilling into hard ground.
