Belltec Bullet Tooth Augers RAD for Rock and Dirt are super aggressive augers for digging dirt to concrete to solid rock. Augering through solid rock requires ample torque and down pressure. Skid steers typically do not have adequate down pressure for solid rock augering. Backhoes, mini excavators and full size excavators are more effective, but the addition of weight to a skid steer can prove beneficial. Belltec offers a weighted skid steer mounting frame.
The RAD line of augers feature a cast iron head with carbide bullet shaped teeth that can rotate in the socket. As the head engages the top surface of rock or concrete, a few of the teeth begin cutting concentric circles in the rock, and as the head goes deeper, more teeth engage the material.
RAD augers in smaller sizes such as 4.5 and 6 inch diameters are also denoted as SRA for Solid Rock Auger. All RAD augers have heavy duty flighting (helical coils up the shaft) for carrying the fines (dirt and fractured rock) up the hole to be distributed on the ground. RAD augers are available in single and double flighting depending on the diameter. Flighting is hard surfaced for wear durability.
RAD bullet teeth are replaceable. Typically an operator need not order extra teeth initially as the bullet teeth will give adequate indication in plenty of time to order more teeth in normal solid rock applications.
