Danuser’s new EP Auger System offers a planetary gear drive that has up to 42% more output torque strength than the competition with quick and easy maintenance and multiple mounting options for tractors, backhoes, excavators and skid steers.

The new EP earth auger features a robust, American-designed planetary gear drive and motor rated up to 3500 PSI which delivers greater torque for drilling through hard, compacted surfaces. The planetary also features easily accessible check and fill plugs which means fast, simple maintenance.

“The EP Auger System is built with a Danuser planetary manufactured to our engineering design, creating a planetary with up to 42% more output torque strength than competitor models,” said company co-owner, Glenn Danuser. “We’re also offering an array of models, ranging from 6 to 35 GPM and from 1500 to 3500 PSI, making this a very versatile tool for the agricultural, industrial and rental industries.”

Danuser added that hoses are routed out of the top of the drive unit, secured with bulkhead nuts, to allow for deeper digging in tighter spots with better hose protection. All drive units ship with 45° fittings installed. Other improvements include a beefy skid-steer quick attach mount which fits both skid-steers and front-end loaders. A hose holder spring kit is included on skid-steer and offset tractor loader mounts.

Other features of the EP Auger System include:

  • 2” hex output spindle.
  • Quick attach mounts that offer an adjustable cradle with two positions for transporting at 15° or 30° angles.
  • Mounts that are available for skid-steers, front-end loaders, backhoes and excavators.
  • A five-year warranty and a lifetime warranty covering the unit from output spindle pullout.
