Two Man Post Hole Auger

Post Hole Digger, 2-Person (Powered)

TWO-PERSON POWERED POST HOLE DIGGER 

CAUTION:

  1. NEVER FILL THE GAS TANK WITH ENGINE RUNNING OR WHEN THE UNIT IS HOT!
  2. DON'T RUN THE ENGINE AT EXCESSIVE SPEEDS. Operating the unit at excessive speeds increases the hazard of personal injury.
  3. Keep bystanders away from the hole and earth drill while in use.
  4. Before using the earth drill, be sure that the area is clear of 
    potential hazards, such as pipe, rocks, wire, boards and any other material that could entangle itself around the drill bit.
  5. Make sure that you know the location of buried utility lines. A CUT ELECTRICAL OR GAS LINE CAN INJURE OR KILL YOU.
  6. Always stop the motor when moving between holes and when the machine is not in use.
  7. Keep your hair, loose clothing and hands away from moving parts.

STARTING WITH THE AUGER ATTACHED
  1. Place the unit in digging position. Adjust throttle to approximately 1/4 open.
  2. Person working the throttle uses right hand and positions the left handle against left hip.
  3. Person assisting operator places handle bar on left hip while supporting unit with right hand on the right handle bar, using the left hand to pull the rope start.
  4. Upon starting, the person operating the throttle should be ready to slow the engine down to prevent over-revving.
  5. To start drilling, increase engine throttle.
  6. To shut the unit off, slow down the engine first, then use the kill switch to stop it.

DRILLING
  1. Move in close to the unit, letting the handle bar grip rest firmly against the left hip.
  2. While drilling, allow the handle bar to slide up and down the left hip and leg. This position lets the users absorb the torque and have control of the unit in difficult drilling conditions.
  3. When drilling, an up and down motion is required. Drill to a depth of about one foot and with the auger spinning, lift the unit and spin the dirt from the auger. Repeat until hole is complete. (NOTE: If the auger was just held down, it would be almost impossible to remove it when the proper depth is reached.)
  4. DON'T USE WITH ARMS IN AN EXTENDED POSITION OR HANDLE BARS ABOVE THE SHOULDERS. If an object was encountered, the unit could be jerked from the operators' hands, causing possible injury to the users and damage to the unit.
  5. When drilling areas filled with obstructions, operate the drill at less than full throttle.
