Solid Auger and Components (Section 4)

Solid (construction) augers from Mills Machine are furnished with rugged steel flighting, heavy-duty steel center shaft and have a variety of cutting heads available. Used for utility, industrial, mining, and construction applications, they are available in standard diameters from 3 1/2 to 48 and larger sizes are available upon request. Standard solid augers have a hex shank (pin) up and a hex socket (box) down but can be made with any connection you desire. The normal length is five feet with other lengths readily available. 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 this page 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 for tough drilling applications. Custom diameters, variations of pitch, flighting and connections are some options available. Let our experienced sales people help you match your desired designs with our broad experience and custom manufacturing abilities.

Custom augers available on request.
