Construction equipment: Portable auger stand provides safety

Utility poles: Utility Tool & Trailer’s portable auger stand was developed with safety in mind. It provides a secure stand for the auger when transitioning from auguring for poles to anchoring. There are times when the auger cannot simply be screwed into the ground for removal, due to truck positioning, existing underground facilities, frost, customer lawns, and other constraints. The portable auger stand provides a safe and secure way to keep the auger positioned upright to ease the process of auger removal and reattachment. Setup is simple. The auger shaft clamp collar attaches to the auger shaft below the windup stud so once installed it will not interfere with digging operation or stowing of the auger.

The benefits of using the universal Auger Up includes reduced worker related injuries, the elimination of possibly drilling into underground utilities, it is light in weight and has a compact design for convenient storage.
