Auger Bits Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM SIZE AUGER BIT THE V40 & V50 AUGER DRIVE CAN USE?

For best drilling results, the V40 Auger Drive is designed to use bits up to 30” in diameter and up to 48” long, and the V50 Auger Drive is designed to use bits up to 36” in diameter and up to 48” long. Using a larger or longer auger bit can damage the drive gear spindle or motor and will void the warranty.

DOES THE AUGER DRIVE USE A HEX OR ROUND OUTPUT AND WHY?

The V40 and V50 Auger Drives have a 2” hex drive. Virnig uses a hex drive because it is less likely to slip while drilling. The force is on the hex interface instead of a shear pin resulting in more reliable performance.

WHAT TOOTH OPTIONS DOES VIRNIG OFFER FOR THE STANDARD & TREE BITS?

Virnig offers Wisdom Gage teeth, Wisdom teeth, and Carbide Wisdom teeth for all purpose applications. Standard Chisel teeth and Carbide Chisel teeth are available for hard, more compacted ground. Standard replacement Fishtail Points and heavy-duty Carbide Fishtail Points are also available.

WHAT TYPE OF ATTACHMENT INTERFACE/HOOKUP DOES VIRNIG USE?

Virnig skid steer attachments are manufactured with a universal mount to fit most skid steer loaders. Mounting frame is built to ISO 24410 and SAE J2513 standards.

Go here to find skid steer capacity and specs for 2015 models.

Contact a local Virnig dealer for the most accurate specs, or contact Virnig at 800.648.2408.

WHY DOES VIRNIG USE NITROSTEEL® CYLINDER RODS?

Virnig uses NitroSteel® rods because they are a superior performing alternative to chrome plating. The finish offers improved corrosion resistance and better grease retention.

Chrome plated cylinder rods can flake or pit and destroy the seals or other internal components; resulting in downtime and expensive repairs.

A NitroSteel® rod will perform better and increase the service life of a cylinder, making it the cost-effective choice.

WHAT IS THE SETUP TIME FOR A VIRNIG SKID STEER ATTACHMENT?

Most Virnig attachments are ready to work right off the pallet.

To minimize set up time, Virnig Manufacturing requires the machine brand and model to be listed on each order for attachments with hydraulic components to ensure proper hose length, routing, and coupler sizing. In addition, all hydraulic Virnig Attachments are tested for leaks and proper operation before leaving the factory. There may be specific scenarios in which additional setup time will be required.

HOW QUICKLY CAN I GET REPLACEMENT PARTS?

Most parts for Virnig skid steer attachments are available in-stock and can be shipped as early as the same day the order is received. Fabricated and back ordered parts are available with a reasonable lead time. Virnig uses several shipping options to provide timely and cost effective delivery to customers.

Check with a local Virnig dealer for replacement part availability.
