What is an auger, and what is it most commonly used for?
You might be wondering what an auger is. An auger is a spiral-shaped tool that you can use to drill holes into the ground and other surfaces and materials. This could be drilling holes for solar posts, deck posts and telephone poles. However, you can also use augers to drill holes into wood to extract maple syrup or drill holes through the ice while fishing during winter.
An auger has what is called a flighting, which is a spiralling metal shaft with a blade at the end of it. The flighting rotates so you can scrape, cut or siphon out any drilled materials. Soil, ice and other types of debris from the material move along the flighting and out of the hole while the blade rotates.
An auger is a speciality tool, and there are several types for you to choose between. Which auger you should choose will depend on your drilling purpose, as each auger is designed to work with specific materials and surfaces. Augers are typically powered by an electric motor, and they can be used manually by hand.
What are common auger sizes?
As mentioned earlier, augers come in various shapes and sizes. Usually, you will find auger drill bits available in the following sizes:
Generally, an auger will allow you to drill three to four feet. It is important that you always check the width and depth you can use your auger for. If you have a project that requires an extra wide or deep hole, you may need an auger that is crane-attached or tow-behind.
Common types of augers
As mentioned above, there are several types of auger bits, such as:
It is important that you choose the correct auger for your project. For instance, if you need to drill holes through ice, you will need an ice auger. If you use the wrong auger for your material, you can potentially break both your auger and the material you are working with.
Why buy an auger?
So, why should you buy an auger? For starters, augers are incredibly versatile, and they can save you hours of work where you would otherwise have to manually dig a deep hole. Augers are also used on construction sites and industrial projects. Here, they improve efficiency as well. However, augers can also be used for personal use, such as building a fence, ice fishing or extracting maple syrup.
