Key Features


Redesigned track incorporates rectangular steel tubing, thicker vertical rails than previous models and new placement of cross members to strengthen the rails when connected to other track sections. New center support provides a smooth surface when pulling augers.


With a hydraulic brake, dog pin position indicators, fast-feed and auto-bore, setting proper boring rotation and advance speed iseffortless to control and maintain.


Centralized control panel with integral vandal shield. All machine functions combined in one area. Console includes gauges, ignition switch and engine indicators.

Proven Dependability. High-torque air-cooled Deutz diesel engine keeps the 24B on the job with proven dependability.
Protection from Debris. Tubular steel cage design protects components from damage and the hydraulic dog plate cylinder is shielded from debris.


Powerful 24.7 hp caterpillar water cooled engine with integral hydraulic pump drives. Hydraulic clutch, 4 speed transmission and a differential planetary gearbox proved torque to the cutting head.

Available Options

On Target Steering System

On Target Steering System

The ON TARGET system allows contractors to also control the direction of the bore in a lateral movement, providing more accuracy for difficult on-grade bores ranging from 16 to 60 inches in diameter.


MCL 225

The MCL 225 auger boring system from McLaughlin was designed for long large diameter casing installations for power, communications, water/sewer and pipeline projects.  Powered by a 214 HP Volvo tier 4 compliant diesel engine it is equipped with 5” hex Auger driving 1,200,000 ft lbs of thrust & 126,000 ft.lbs of torque for big bore applications.
