Increase Your Crew’s Efficiency With A Heavy-Duty Auger!

As a construction or landscaping crew, you may have experienced the problems of owning a chain-reduction auger.

Whether it’s the lower product quality or higher maintenance required, it’s frustrating when a mini skid steer auger doesn’t perform well with the typical job wear-and-tear.

That’s why we designed our planetary motor auger attachments to require minimal maintenance while performing better with daily construction or landscaping use.

At Lawsen Equipment, we know you want to be confident that your auger drive is built for long-term construction use.

To do that, you need a heavy-duty planetary motor auger that can withstand the daily use of a construction crew.

Your crew doesn’t have time or energy to dig holes by hand, worry about maintenance on chain-reduction augers, or experience project downtime if a rental company doesn’t have the right auger for your job.

Sadly, many crews have experienced the frustration that comes when time and energy is wasted due to inefficient hole-digging methods.

We believe every construction crew deserves an auger drive that is built to handle the daily wear-and-tear of the jobsite.

We understand the frustration of wasting man hours or experiencing job downtime because you don’t have the right tool to dig holes. That’s why we built a planetary motor direct-mount auger designed for heavy-duty use and minimal maintenance.

What makes our augers better designed for your crew?
Heavy-duty metal made to take the abuse of the jobsite
A pedestal on the auger cradle that helps protect the auger drive when unattached
Optional weight brackets that allow extra weight to be added for down pressure enhancement
We help you size the auger for your specific machine and the auger bits you use
5-year warranties for the auger drive and 3-year warranty on the hydraulic motor

You don’t need to worry about digging holes by hand, using low-quality augers not designed for regular construction use, or relying on a rental company.

Instead, find your auger drive today so that you can dig holes faster with minimal manual labor, reduce job downtime by not relying on rental companies, and have the correctly sized auger drive for your machine and auger bits; all while needing minimal maintenance!
