Bobcat Company introduced the Bobcat® 35PH and 50PH planetary drive augers. The new units are compatible with approved models of Bobcat skid-steer loaders, compact track loaders, all-wheel steer loaders and compact excavators.
Expanding the lineup of Bobcat augers, these units are designed with a high-torque gearbox, allowing them to deliver more power for difficult installations at deeper digging depths and for working in tough conditions such as rock, clay, coral and frost. Greater torque can be especially beneficial to excavating, grading and site development contractors, as well as beef cattle producers and landscape professionals installing fence, anchors and screw pylons.
Both the 35PH and 50PH planetary augers are 11.5 inches wide and 39.6 inches long and can dig to depths of 73 inches without an extension. An optional adjustable inner extension is available to increase the digging depth an additional 48 inches. The 35PH planetary auger provides 4,177 foot-pounds of torque at 3,500 psi, while the 50HP offers 5,291 foot-pounds of torque at 3,500 psi.
