Get through tough ground quicker with a John Berends Implements Hydraulic Down Pressure Model Post Hole Digger. Additionally, the 2.5″ x 8″ hydraulic ram transfers approximately 1000kg of weight from the tractor onto the auger, making this model ideal for penetrating hard ground. Furthermore, two sets of remotes are required, and the unit is fitted with 0.5″ double braid Ryco hoses with 20,300psi burst pressure. The John Berends Implements Hydraulic Down Pressure Model is Australian made using quality European components. The Hydraulic Down Pressure model is suitable for use with augers 4″ to 24″ in diameter. Dig depth is a maximum of 1200mm (if ground conditions permit), though optional auger extensions are available. The high quality Series 3 PTO driveshaft features an L2 Torque Limiting Clutch at the tractor end. This is more effective than a slip clutch in this application. The digger also features an easy to adjust stabilizer mounting stand, allowing the unit to be connected and disconnected from the tractor for storage with little effort. A range of augers are available, in 4″, 6″, 8″, 10″, 12″, 15″, 18″ and 24″ sizes. All augers are 1200mm long. Moreover, all augers are fitted with a Pengo Boring Head, with replaceable earth teeth at 35° angles and bolt on pilots. Furthermore, all augers have a double cutting head. Optional teeth and pilots are available to suit various ground conditions. Conversion heads are available in most sizes to mount onto older augers (either in clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation). In excessively hard conditions, a heavier Trimax auger is also available, which consists of a complete cast steel head with teeth set at a more aggressive 45° angle. The Trimax auger is also fitted with a Tri-flow pilot which is more effective in guiding the auger and therefore stabilising the tip in hard conditions. There is less pitch on the 6mm flights which allows for an easy flow of dirt from the hole.
