As an excavator attachment, the auger expands the functions of the excavator. The excavator also has the ability to drill holes. The auger uses the hydraulic system of the excavator as the power source, and is driven by non-traditional electric power. The kinetic energy is stronger, the drilling speed is faster, and the drilled holes are rounder. It is widely used in various constructions.

There are also augers in the construction of farm houses. We all know that farm houses are not like buildings with a height of more than ten floors. Most of them are constructed by villagers themselves. The pile foundations of farm houses are generally made of concrete pouring piles, which are generally circular pile foundations. This circular hole pile is drilled by an auger. Why is the auger the first choice for good equipment? One is that it can quickly form holes, and the other is that it is very convenient to operate and install. It only needs simple training for construction personnel to get started. The pile foundation drilled by the auger is stable and firm, which can effectively avoid the problem of foundation settlement. Because the pile foundation transmits the load of the house into the deeper soil layer, no waterproofing is required for areas with a high groundwater table.

The whole construction process is also very simple. First, we install the auger on the excavator, and the operator of the excavator operates the drilling construction at the designated location. Taking the YA8000 type auger drill as an example, it only takes about a minute to drill a 2-meter-deep hole. After the hole is formed, we put in the reinforced cage and pour the concrete. After the concrete solidifies, we need to break the pile head, and the pile foundation construction is really completed.
