Working Ranch - March 2018

new on the range RIGGED TO DIG We’re always needing a hole dug on the ranch, it seems. Now, there’s a machine that loves to dig. Little Beaver’s Towable Hydraulic Earth Drill combines safe and powerful drilling with hassle-free operation and transportation. The drill’s balanced frame makes it ideal for today’s aging workforce. The design reduces operating weight by roughly 50 percent compared to traditional hydraulic drills, and it requires less than 20 pounds of force to pivot into digging position. The frame also eliminates torque for safe one-person drilling. The rig can be conveniently transported using a removable “no tools” towing hitch, saving valuable truck or trailer space and making it an economical tool for fence and deck building, sign installation, rental, and park and recreation departments. The Towable drill’s 11-horsepower Honda engine delivers 22 percent more power than competitive models. To further boost performance, the unit’s 2,700-psi hydraulic system provides up to 300 foot-pounds of torque with an auger speed of 150 rpm. The Towable’s 34-inch width allows it to easily fi t through gates and other tight spaces for drilling in locations inaccessible to skid steers and tractors. Its 16-inch semi-pneumatic tires and auger lock make it easy for one person to maneuver the drill around a jobsite and pivot into position without damaging delicate turf or landscapes. For added convenience, the Towable features a two-position handle that rotates 180 degrees to drill near buildings, walls and other structures. Additionally, the drill’s infi nitely variable 20-degree auger tilt makes it possible to drill vertically in uneven terrain. The Towable is compatible with all Little Beaver 36- and 42-inch standard, carbide and rock snap-on augers. Little Beaver backs the Towable Hydraulic Earth Drill with a two-year warranty, while the engine is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
