Front to back directional pivot provides the operator with exceptional control when digging with large augers. The single directional pivot prevents the auger from kicking left to right and reduces flailing. The head locks in the horizontal position for usage with the Toro Cement Bowl, Capstand Adapter and more. The high torque drive provides a tremendous 1515 ft-lbs of torque at 3000 psi with a bit speed of 57 rpm to break through the toughest ground. The planetary gear drive provides high speeds and maximum torque to the auger, while transmitting minimal stress on the auger head components. The planetary gear drive insures the longevity of the hydraulic motor.
In any drive head, there is a tradeoff between torque (power) and speed. The high torque head provides a large amount of torque to the auger at a slower speed. The high torque translates into the Dingo’s capability to dig 30″ (76.2 cm) holes up to 6′ (1.8 m) deep in clay, gravel, sandstone and many other conditions where lower torque heads get stuck.
