Auger

Post hole borer, post hole auger, post hole digger, fence post digger and fence post hole digger are just some of common terms used when referring to post hole auger machines. When you need to hire a post hole digger you always need to know about the machine in question.

An ‘auger’ is a form of drilling device, similar to a dill piece, that formed with a rotating helical screw blade which is called a ‘flighting’. The flighting acts as a screw / material conveyor simultaneously boring the required hole and extracting the drilled out material (soil or earth). The orientation of the blades rotation forces the material out of bore hole.

When being used as a fence hole tool augers can also be known a ans earth auger, ground auger, hole auger or post auger. These forms of auger can be manually turned, are usually handheld and powered by a 2-stroke petrol combustion engine. When used in industrial fencing, our petrol auger units create a smooth, structurally sound and deep bore hole which can help safely secure fence posts to form the base of solid fencing system.

When you hire a one man petrol post hole borer machine from Hire Station you will be able to use the auger to create bores of between 40mm (1.5inch) and 200mm (7.8inch).

How 2 Tips - Post Driver, Post Borer, Post Puller

Here we have some basis tips to follow when using our range of Industrial Fencing Equipment. These aren’t ‘How 2’ guides, just some basis safety and usage tips designed to make sure you stay safe and in control.

When using one of our petrol post drivers, post hole diggers and hydraulic post pullers it is always important to wear the correct protection and so here at Hire Station we recommend ear plugs or defenders, eye protection in the form of either safety goggles or a full face mask, hand protection which will also aid your grip of the machine and safety boots (steel toe caps for the best protection).

With our petrol post driver machines and hydraulic post puller units we also recommend wearing hard hat head protection all of which is readily available from here at Hire Station.

Petrol Post Hole Driver

When using our petrol post driver machines it is important to always take precautions to stay safe. Always wear protective gloves as there design will not only protect you but also increase the amount of grip you can exert of the machine.

Your stance whilst using a post driver is very important as this produces a solid structure from which you can effectively drive posts into the ground.

Your legs must be slightly wider than shoulder width apart with a slight bend at the knee. This will put the tension into your muscles rather than your bones. When grasping the machine with your hands, make sure your arms and hands are both level meaning your fists aren’t facing inwards or outwards. You should also always keep a straight and flat back, if you need to bend or moves do so from your hips. This helps minimise any chance of a back injury.

When the machine starts driving apply and smooth, equal and constant pressure to ensure the machine is always in contact with the post. Depending on the density of the ground the amount of pressure required to help drive the post will vary.

Our Rhino Petrol Post Driver units are fitted with a dampening system which will help keep down the amount of vibration transmitted into your upper torso.

Depending upon your location (outside a building or a garden) you may need to contact local power and telephone companies to make sure there aren’t any electrical cables or pipework situated where you plan to use the post hole borer. We also recommend doing this well in advance of your planned work to aid in effective time management.

To help stabilise the auger during the earlier stages of drilling we advise digging a small pilot hole the same width as your auger. This is act as a guide allowing you to bore accurately whilst applying maximum pressure to the post hole borer.

Do not rush the boring process. Apply firm but steady pressure and use the throttle gently to allow the machine to begin boring and then apply more throttle as needed.

Once you have bored your holes cover them over with a sheet of plywood and label the area so as to warn anybody to prevent them from falling into the hole.

If you are unsure about anything when hiring a post hole borer from us then please feel free to contact us here and one of our friendly hire team members will be on hand to help you or you can speak to our knowledgeable branch staff when collecting your equipment or when our driver arrives to deliver your order.

Hydraulic Post Puller

When using the post pullers hydraulic system always stand behind the machine. This will not only allow you the best leverage when pumping the hydraulics but will also position you behind any possible danger from the post that is being removed.

We recommend sawing down any posts that are being removed. This simply technique helps make the removal process more manageable. Here at Hire Station we recommend cutting off the post just above the post rest when it is in its full down position.

Never use our Hydraulic Post Puller machines for lifting or lowering of loads as this may cause damage to the machine. You must always be aware of the pinch points (the areas where the machine grasps the posts) as these can exert enough force to potentially crush your hand.

Sometime it isn’t necessary to pump the ram all the way as once the ground seal is broke the post and the attached concrete footing (if one is present) will easily come away. Always make sure the post is firmly rested on the post pullers post rest before moving the machine as this will ensure the post will not shift from its locked location, minimising the risk of an accident.

Once you have removed the post, make sure the machine is resting on level ground before slowly twisting the pressure release level anti-clockwise. As the hydraulic pressure eases the chains will begin to slack off, allowing you to unwrap and remove the post. For larger posts, a second person may be required to assist in stabilising the post before being removed).
