Mechanical Earth Drills

Mechanical earth drills cut down on the time you spend digging holes. If you’ll be planting trees or shrubs, or installing mailboxes or fence posts, you’ll find that using an earth drill significantly speeds up the process while creating consistent holes that meet the size requirements of your project.

Little Beaver Mechanical earth drills combine a compact, lightweight design with additional safety features to allow safe and efficient one-man operation. Our torque tube reroutes kickback from the drill away from the operator, making it one of the safest drills for single person operation. One-man drilling projects can be dangerous, but Little Beaver earth drills help ensure your project is done efficiently and safely.

Kwik-Trench Mini-Trencher

Traditionally, landscapers have used shovels and other gardening tools to break up soil to dig trenches for edging or underground wiring or sprinkler lines. This process is time-consuming and physically grueling. That’s why Little Beaver offers a mini-trencher.

The Kwik-Trench features a simple, push-forward design for easy operation and enhanced operator safety compared to competitive pull-back models. This mini-trencher cuts trenches up to 12 inches deep and 4 inches wide, neatly depositing the soil on one side of the trench to make backfill quick and easy.

Horizontal Boring Kit

When installing underground wiring or sprinklers, you might need to run a portion of the line underneath a driveway or sidewalk. To do so, you’ll need a reliable, safe equipment option to easily bore underneath the concrete or asphalt. Little Beaver’s horizontal boring kits attach to our Mechanical earth drill providing both dry and wet boring opportunities.

The sidewalk boring kit includes a 5-foot auger with a 3-inch diameter bit, a horizontal drill key and a 5-foot extension with a universal wiggle joint. Once connected to a drill, the horizontal boring kit can bore underneath a standard sidewalk. If you need to bore a longer distance, we also offer the driveway boring kit. The driveway boring kit includes a 2-, 3-, or 4-inch water drill bit with a swivel adapter that connects through swivel assembly and a horizontal drill key. This kit can bore up to 50 feet under driveways or parking lots.
