Kelvin Hamilton, Head of Auger Torque, Australia, said:

“We were getting more and more requests for a high torque earth drill at an optimal weight, particularly with the growing requirement in the market for screw piling and core barrelling applications. We are extremely fortunate to have had the likes of Keller in the UK and Jordan Rail in Australia help us test the product and really put it through its paces. This combined with rigorous factory testing we were able to ascertain how hard it can work and for how long and so we are confident in its capability and excited about the opportunities this presents.”
