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.
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
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.
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
