Eterra Skid Steer Auger Bits
Eterra is a premium manufacturer of a full catalog of attachments and tools, and their Skid Steer Auger Attachments and Auger Bits have played a major part in the company's growth. Before we discuss the features of the bits themselves, it's worth highlighting the major selling point of Eterra's highly regarded Auger Drives: The Flip Hitch. Both Mini Skid Steers as well as full size Skid Steer Auger Attachments from Eterra can be selected with the ability to swing the auger 180 degrees, allowing for performance of concrete mixing.
This added functionality has been highly regarded in the industry since Eterra released it on the market. It can also be selected in Eterra's Auger Big Bundle, along with a full host of bits, to complete a comprehensive collection of auger tools.
As for Eterra's Earth Auger Bits, they come available one class, and that's Heavy Duty, there is no standard or light duty option available, as all Eterra Auger Bits are built ready for extreme ground conditions, up to an including hard-compacted soil and rocky terrain. For the drilling of asphalt, concrete or solid rocks, Eterra offers the option to outfit their bits with Heavy Duty Tungsten Carbide Teeth, as well as a Tungsten Carbide Fishtail, heightening the boring power of an already monstrous earth drilling system.
Eterra Auger Bits come in sizes 4"-36" in diameter, with 4"-24" the ideal options for mini loaders. Rated to 4500 ft. lbs., Eterra highlights that their Auger Bits have been designed with single flighting, they feel that too many double flighted bits boast about this feature without providing the actual benefits.
The single flighting of Eterra's bits provide the same heavy-duty Earth Drilling functionality, but also clear soil and material faster, avoiding inefficient clogging and time-wasting maintenance required of some double-flighted models. This also cuts down on inefficiencies by keeping the drilled hole clean and concise, without the need to carve out a larger area due to a jammed-up bit or too much material falling back into the working area.
In addition to these bits, Eterra also offers an Auger Stump Planer that combines with their 3500 and 4500 model Auger Drives. The Stump Planer comes available in 10" and 14" sizes, adding to your auger arsenal the ability to shave down and eliminate stumps that slow down your earth drilling operations. With 3 steel tool cutters and a rugged starter planer pilot, the Stump Planer digs into stumps, feed through cleanly, and avoids overloading and sticking.
