In any drive head, there is a tradeoff between torque (power) and speed (revolutions per minute). The high torque head provides a large amount of torque (power) to the auger at a slower speed. The high torque (power) translates into the Dingo's capability to dig 30" (76.5 cm) holes up to 5' (1.5 m) deep in clay, gravel, sandstone and many other conditions where lower torque heads get stuck.
Any of the Toro Augers can be changed on the head with only one person! The 2 9/16" (6.5 cm) diameter shaft allows easy fitting of the head to the auger. Most other competitors require two people to change an auger.
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 plantetary 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.
Haul, mix, and pour up to 200 lbs (dry) cement. Eliminates hand mixing.
Available in 6" 9" 12" 15" 18" 24" 30" (15.2 cm, 22.9 cm, 30.5 cm, 38 cm, 45.7 cm, 61 cm, 76.2 cm). Toro Augers are designed for years and years of service. From the penetration tip of the bit to the connection design on the shaft, Toro augers are engineered for durability. High carbon teeth penetrate the soil and protect the flighting. The teeth are easily replaceable when they become worn. The flighting on all Toro augers is connected to the shaft by a continuous weld. Most other auger flightings are tack welded at 2 or 3 spots on the shaft. High stress can cause the tack welds to crack and break, Toro welds will not break under the same conditions. The Toro flighting is composed of 3/8" (1 cm) thick continuous steel where many other augers are 1/8" (3 mm) thick or less. The shaft of the auger firmly connects to the power head reducing "play" in the system and creating a longer lasting auger. This connection provides less "shock" to the power head, lengthening the life of the head and its components.
Made from the same high strength material as the auger shaft, the extension can be added to increase the depth of the hole.
Used for extreme digging conditions, such as rock and coral. Replaceable carbide teeth.
