Solid Auger Components Overview


Solid Augers from Mills Machine are furnished with rugged steel flighting, heavy duty steel center shaft, and have a variety of cutter heads available. Used for utility, industrial, mining, and construction applications, they are available in standard diameters from 3 1/2" to 48". Larger sizes are available upon request. Standard solid augers are 5 ft. long and have a hex pin up and a hex box down. Several cutter head styles are available, ranging from a fish tail or screw bit design for soft formations, forged steel finger type for soft to medium formations, and a carbide-tipped bullet cutter for medium to hard formations. Each type of cutter head is specially designed in a spiral shape or with flighting to efficiently convey the cuttings or spoils to the auger flighting. Mills Machine Company excels in custom designed augers and cutter heads. We have presented several drawings on these pages to show some of the versatility in our product design. Available are standard flow and jet auger designs (drill rod with flighting), cutting heads for standard duty or heavy duty, tough drilling applications. Custom diameters, variations of pitch, flighting, and connections are just some of the custom options available.
