SPK AUGER (EARTH DRILL)
The auger is used to dig round vertical holes in different types of terrain. By changing the size of the auger bit, one can vary
the diameter of the hole. By using the extension, a deep hole can be achieved. A clockwise rotation is the digging rotation. A
counterclockwise rotation is used to free a stuck auger bit.
All bystanders should be kept a minimum of 10 ft (3 m) away from working area of the auger.
