the ground is really hard two to three metres

down, we would recommend they take an

Auger.”

Until this product was launched, if customers had

difficulty in driving trench sheets into the ground with

the EMV, they would either hire an Auger specialist, or

use the excavator bucket to dig out and backfill the soil.

The digging method is time-con-

suming and cannot be done in areas

where there is a risk of disturbing the

foundations of a building.

Among the key benefits of the new

Auger products is versatility. With a

range of models to choose between,

the drills can provide solutions for

several different excavator sizes –

ranging from five to 45 tonnes and

an extension bar can also be easily

attached for greater drilling depth.

Adrian Sumner, foreman on the

Newpool Construction site in Shifnal

where Mabey Hire’s first Auger was

hired, said:

“The Auger has proven a huge asset

on site, and has performed exactly

as we hoped it would in enabling us to bore into

hard ground. It’s a really great tool to have on

board, especially as we move into the winter

months, and is already offering a significant

improvement to our working efficiency”.
