Just A Hole In The Ground
In 1963, I was building a training arena with a borrowed post hole digger. On the first hole, in hard dry ground it wasn´t going down. We put a big long pipe through the top side of the auger and I put all my weight on it. Then it happened. As the tractor roared, little greasy pieces of steel bearing pens blew all over the dirt pile. By the time I paid the repairs and replaced all the greasy little parts I was to half the purchase price on a borrowed digger. No hole was completed. I had to dig it by hand.
Over the years I´ve worn out, broken and repaired tractor powered post hole diggers. We have snapped off augers, shear bolts and even one near serious accident.
The Ohio area is serious limestone strata for fence construction. Once in Ohio it was obvious our old post hole digging program was no good.
DCCI acquired a 4500 lb. down pressure hydraulic auger/digger. For the first time we saw post holes go 48" deep by 12" around in minutes. This hydraulic down pressure digger fits on most tractors from 28 to 100 H.P. with remote hydraulics. It mounts easily on category 1,2, and 3 three point lift tractors.
Here at DCCI its easy to see the 32 miles of new fence construction. The layers of limestone, shale and sand stone has forced us to learn important lessons about post hold diggers. Our fence corners are all railroad ties and they are set in the rock.
Until we learned about the down pressure drills, fence construction was a nightmare.
We´re so sold, we´re now marketing this serious unit. Did I say it will drill through concrete, rock, dry hard dirt and phone lines. (We won´t make that mistake again.)
The auger business end is made of 3/4" thick double flighted boring heads, 3/8" flighting and replaceable carbide bullet teeth. Their heavy duty dirt/rock augers have 3/8" flighting, replaceable forged teeth, a cast boring head, and a replaceable fishtail pilot. I love the way these eat right through rock. You will love to own one if you build fence in hard rock country.
If you are fed-up with light weight diggers and want to make a change, call DCCI. We will ship your new Belltec Digger with as little as 3 days delivery time. You and your wife will enjoy digging post holes as a family relaxation. There will be holes all over your pasture just for the fun of it. Call for prices and information. This is a one-of-a-kind piece of equipment or DCCI would not be associated with it.
DRILL HOLES FAST WHERE OTHER DIGGERS FAIL WITH BELLTEC'S PATENTED DOWN PRESSURE DRILLING MACHINE.
Belltec Industries TM48 Drilling Machine mounts easily on three point tractors over 28 horsepower which have at
least two hydraulic remote valves. Our machine's design and performance go way beyond today's tractor mounted
post hole diggers.
Our unique system transforms a three-point tractor into a drilling machine capable of doing what the big truck rigs
do; drill accurate, straight holes (to a depth of 5 1/2' on a single auger) in almost any drilling conditions including
solid rock and concrete.
If drilling holes is a problem for you, we have the solution. Whether it be hard dry ground, rocky soil or solid rock,
WE CAN DRILL IT!
FRAME-GUIDED AUGER SYSTEM: Twin Hydraulic cylinders connect the
auger carriage to the mainframe of the machine. The cylinders move the
carriage up and down the mainframe slides. Adjustable feet on the mainframe
may be leveled manually or hydraulically. Because the auger is guided into
the ground by the mainframe, as long as the mainframe is straight and the
carriage is level, the machine will drill straight holes. The hydraulic
cylinders are directly connected to the Gear Drive - Auger Carriage without
any leverage or linkage. This gives much better control over the auger
in rocks, roots or soft ground. If the cylinders are moved 1", so is the
auger. Movement is not multiplied by leverage of slack in a linkage. A
person is much less likely to corkscrew the auger through a root or in
soft ground. More complete control over the auger
MAKES THE OPERATOR'S JOB EASIER AND FASTER.
GEAR DRIVE: The auger is powered by a heavy duty gearbox with
splined output shaft. The gearbox is protected by an automatic torque limiter
within the P.T.O. shaft which instantly relieves torque when overloaded
and automatically resets itself as soon as P.T.O. speed is reduced. This
eliminates troublesome shear pins and down time because of broken P.T.O.
shafts and cross kits.
DOWN PRESSURE: Utilizing the tractor's weight through these unique
patented Locking Arms, up to 4500# down pressure can be supplied by opposing
patented twin hydraulic cylinders. THIS ELIMINATES THE NEED FOR ANYONE
"TO RIDE" THE MACHINE RISKING INJURY. Pressure is controlled by an
adjustable relief valve.
REAR SAFETY SHIELD: Allows operator to back into existing fence
for mending or installing new fence while the old fence is still in place.
