Here are some key advantages of each of our excavator hitches and an explanation on how to submit an order.
Digga excavator hitches
Choosing from Digga’s range of excavator hitches will vary based on the application and attachment, and your machine. Below are 4 of Digga’s excavator hitches which are fully engineered and manufactured at our Yatala facility in Queensland.
Digga single pin hitch
The single-pin hitch is suitable for excavators using smaller drives. It is a light weight, non-bulky option for smaller machines. This hitch can be used to fit Digga PDD to PD3 drive units on micro or mini excavators up to 3 tonne.Its weight and size make it easy to transport, fit and offers a financially economical option.
Digga double pin hitch
The double pin fixtures make it ideal for augering and screw anchoring in all ground conditions. It is suitable for all drive unit ranges from PDD to PD50, Supa Drives, Mega Drives, Ultra Drives and Xtreme Drives.
The double pin hitch also comes in a 'swing control system', which includes forward and aft dampening for safer maneuvering around worksites and better control of the auger. It suits PD3-PD50 drive units and effectively increases operator productivity and reduces cost.
Digga cradle hitch
It is available with loose pin or fixed pin options and suitable for PDD – PD50 drives. There is more information on the benefits of using the Digga cradle hitch, here.
Digga piling / ryno hitch
The piling hitch cradles the drive in 3 different positions to give better control and manoeuvrability when moving around the job site as well as easier connectivity to augers and screw piles.
As it has been designed for screw piling, it is suited to larger drive units from PD12 – PD50, Supa Drives, Mega Drives, Ultra Drives and Xtreme Drives.
