MECHANICAL EARTH DRILLS

Engineered to Work…And to Last

 

For over 50 years, the versatile Little Beaver Mechanical Earth Drill has been the #1 choice of rental store owners, fencing contractors, and other professionals who require a one-man auger that is safe and simple to operate. Thanks to our exclusive torque tube, we’ve eliminated the kickback found in competitive one-man and two-man augers, making one-man drilling safe and productive.

Features & Benefits

  • Lightweight, powerful, reliable
  • High-speed auger rotation digs holes quickly and cleanly
  • Torque-free digging eliminates kickback and the need for two-man operation

Carriage and Wheel Options

Customize your Little Beaver with a variety of engine, wheel and carriage options. Both the MDL-5 and MDL-8 models are available with Honda OHV or Briggs & Stratton engines. 10″ pneumatic wheels are standard on MDL-8 models, and optional on 5.5 hp units. Engine protecting roll cages are optional on all models. With its 20″ semi-pneumatic wheels, the specially designed rick-sha carrier is ideal for navigating over the rough terrain often associated with geophysical job sites. A convenient pull handle and transmission cradle makes it easy to smoothly move the earth drill to your exact drilling location.
