Bobcat Planetary Drive Auger

Bobcat Company has introduced two new planetary drive augers – the Bobcat 35PH and 50PH. The new units are compatible with approved models of Bobcat skid-steer loaders, compact track loaders, all-wheel steer loaders and compact excavators.

According to Bobcat, these units were designed with a high-torque gearbox, allowing them to deliver more power for difficult installations at deeper digging depths and for working in tough conditions such as rock, clay, coral and frost.

Both the 35PH and 50PH planetary augers are 11.5 inches wide and 39.6 inches long and can dig to depths of 73 inches without an extension. An optional adjustable inner extension is available to increase the digging depth an additional 48 inches. The 35PH planetary auger provides 4,177 foot-pounds of torque at 3,500 psi, while the 50HP offers 5,291 foot-pounds of torque at 3,500 psi.

“With the additional torque that a planetary drive delivers, it can dig deep holes more efficiently to outperform a direct drive auger in tough applications,” Bobcat says in a release.

Featuring an efficient displacement design, the 30PH and 50PH augers have smaller drive housings – less than 12 inches long. According to Bobcat, this smaller housing allows it to follow the bit all the way into the hole to achieve deeper depths. The two-piece shaft is designed to ensure maximum side load ratings without increasing the load on bearings, protecting productivity and uptime.

Bobcat says the longer heavy-duty and rock bits also contribute to deeper holes. At 61.5 inches long, these bits are at least 12 inches longer than current Bobcat auger bits. The new PH auger also has a longer and stronger 2.5-inch hex output shaft to handle the increased torque output.
