Fencing - When you have 100+ fence posts to put in the ground, you don't want to use a handheld dirt shovel. You can probably dig your holes faster than your helper can place the posts in them with our earth augers. Skid steers, mini excavators, and mini loaders like the Toro Dingo* are perfect machines to get into those inaccessible places where you need a fence.
Silt Fence / Erosion Control - You need to dig a trench for your silt fence. If you have a full-sized skid steer loader or even a mini loader such as the Toro Dingo*, then we have a trencher that will do the job for you. A 24" dig depth and 6" width seem to be the most popular for these applications.
Drainage - If you don't want the massive amount of water that drains off your house to erode your lawn, take your drainage underground. With our wide selection of trenching attachments, your skid steer can easily dig a trench from your downspout to an appropriate drainage outlet point. Run some drainage pipe from your downspout, fill in the trench, and your drainage problems are solved. We have trenchers to fit almost all skid steer models and even the mini loaders.
Tree and Shrub Planting - You don't want to spend all day digging a couple holes to plant your trees. Although a backhoe can dig your holes, you are left with a messy hole to fill in afterwards. We have tree and shrub augers available in sizes ranging from 18" to 36" diameters. They have smaller flighting on the bottom to give you a nicely tapered hole to accommodate root balls. If you prefer to dig flat-bottomed holes, our DFB earth augers range from 6" to 36" diameters and will dig a nice, clean hole for you to work with.
Compact Mini Loaders - To fill the void between the full-sized skid steer loader and manual labor, the landscape industry has come out with compact mini loaders such as the Toro Dingo series. These are versatile machines that can get into small places and leave a small footprint.
General Hole/Posthole Digging - Whether you prefer planetary units or chain reduction units, whether you have an 8 gpm or a 35 gpm auxiliary hydraulic system, and whether you need a 6" hole or a 36" hole, we have the auger attachment for you. We have mounting brackets for skid steer loaders, mini excavators, backhoes, and mini loaders to attach the appropriate drive unit to your machine. We have mountings for all of the following machinery: Bobcat, John Deere, Caterpillar (CAT), Toro Dingo, Case, Daewoo, Gehl, Hydra Mac, Hyundai, JCB, Komatsu, Mustang, New Holland, Posi-Track, Takeuchi, Thomas, Toyota, Trak, and Volvo*.
