Little Beaver’s Big Beaver Auger Drill Rig offers 2,500 pounds of lifting capacity and the ability to turn augers up to 18 inches in diameter.
Constructed with a welded mechanical steel frame, the Big Beaver is built for a variety of applications including soil sampling, foundation repair, and drilling environmental test wells. Additionally, the portable design enables it to work in remote locations and those inaccessible to truck-mounted units.
Available in two models, the Big Beaver and Big Beaver XL, the hydraulically powered units may be specified to produce a range of maximum drilling torques from 690 to 170 lb.-ft. and auger speeds from 114 to 547 rpm, respectively, when provided up to 12 gpm and 3,000 psi. Both models have been designed to work with Little Beaver’s D-series augers, which range in diameter from 4 to 18 inches. Auger extensions enable drilling depths up to 32 feet with a 16-inch auger, and 100 feet with a 6-inch auger, depending on soil conditions.
Hydraulic power is available with choice of a 20- or 24-horsepower Honda gas engine, or a 19-horsepower diesel engine.
