REDUCED RISK OF ROLLOVER

Patented Operator Presence Control (OPC) clutch and the low machine profile greatly reduce the risk of rollover, which is critical for high-torque auger machines.

INCREASE SPEED

Long-stroke triple cylinders and an auto hydraulic dog plate help increase efficiency and speed.

ADJUSTABLE THRUST

Three hydraulic rams with auto thrust control and infinitely adjustable speed provide 950,000 lbs of Thrust!

OPERATOR SAFETY

Operator control station located on the RIGHT side of machine for reduced role over risk and to keep operator out of spoil piles.
