The Big Beaver - Portable and Powerful!

The Big Beaver Earth Machine is a precision hole-making tool with a wider application range than ever before.

Three-man mobility makes for ease of maneuvering and operating. In its modular wheeled frame, it is a compact portable unit with hole-making power in the range of much larger units. Its power makes it especially economical for augering foundation repair holes.

Two men can conveniently wheel it under eaves (it is just 80" high) or into a residence or commercial building. Align it up to 15 degrees from the vertical, stabilize it by a torque-tube connection to its hydraulic drive motor, and it is ready to work.
Wide ranging power Out of its wheeled frame and mounted on a truck, trailer, or crawler for powered transport, the Big Beaver unit delivers power for really big jobs like series of Environmental test wells that are widely spaced or over rough terrain. A swing-away drill head provides access for soil sampling through hollow-stem augers. This unit’s plentiful power comes from the durable, proven Model PS-18 hydraulic power source which outputs 5-8GPM at 2500 PSI. This produces 485 ft. lb. of torque at the drill, more than enough to drive the 6" diameter augers.
