Dingo Australia - World's leading mini digger



The Dingo's ability in Post Hole Digging is truly astounding.

It can dig holes up to a massive 750mm (30 inches) diameter to a depth of at least 1.5 metres (deeper with extensions).

What enables this small machine to handle such large augers? Once again it’s the hydraulics. The Dingo has high hydraulic pressures. Higher, in fact, than many larger machines.

This pressure converts directly to power to give more drive torque to the augers. The power is delivered to the augers by the post hole digger drive head. This unit not only drives the augers for hole digging, but also drives the cement mixer bowl and the Wombat spot cultivator.

When it comes to the augers, we use a brand that is recognised as the best. It’s the cutters that are important in digging. These cutters, and how they are positioned, are the result of years of digging experience. The cutting teeth are interchangeable - earth and tungsten teeth for all dirt conditions and rock tips for those really hard conditions that need grinding away at. If it is diggable, or even grind-away-able, then a hole can be dug. Some just take a little longer.

Our “Dingo Augers” are set up in a way to give faster digging at less cost in all dirt conditions. To do this we use a standard earth pilot (worm) with earth spear teeth in all but the outside position. In the outer position, which experiences the most wear, we put tungsten teeth.

Trouble with roots or rocks? The Dingo's ability to be repositioned is a great advantage here, plus the ability to reverse the auger. So for roots simply back off and then feather down again to cut the root. For those holes with loose rocks (always the hardest), a Dingo has great advantages. Reposition the Dingo with a little rocking and slewing. Using this method you can often get the tip under the rocks, to bring them up between the flighting. And, when it’s large rock or shale that is giving the problems, then it’s time to change the teeth to the rock teeth (as mentioned above) to grind through that rock.

With the right teeth the Dingo can even be used to dig through concrete reinforced road base and bitumen! For these extra hard conditions the Post Hole Mate, an accessory that fits over the operators platform, is a must to give you more downwards pressure. (See left)

Anti Swing System
The Dingo Post Hole Digger is fitted with an anti swing system which improves safety by reducing the potential for the auger to swing back & forth when travelling.

The Dingo's ability to dig holes up to 750mm in diameter is outstanding and hard to believe. But in the USA, where Dingoes have been distributed since 1995, the 750mm auger is one of the most popular sizes - used for planting large trees in landscaping projects. The standard augers digging depth is 1.5 metres (this is 400mm more than the auger length because the head can be lowered into the hole), and at this depth the auger will successfully bring all the dirt out from the hole. For more depth auger extensions can be added.

Also available is an Ezi Drill. This unit digs smaller diameter holes vertically to greater depths - up to 1.5 metres in a single pass, and multiples of that depth by adding extensions. Please ask us if you’d like more info on this attachment.
Of course, once the Post holes are dug, the Dingo can also carry the posts to the hole (4 in 1 bucket, forks, or leveller), and, with the appropriate hydraulic tools, the Dingo can power a tamper, and drill holes through the posts. As always, at the end of the day, the Dingo loads back onto the ute or the trailer and goes home with you - without any need for a truck.

We’ve even developed a lifter to remove the back strain from loading or unloading augers from the Dingo trailers. It’s called an Auger Mate and can be purchased as an accessory to the Multi Purpose Tool.
