DIG-R-TACH earth drilling series offers versatility

Ideal for use with skid steer loaders, mini-excavators, and small backhoes, General Equipment's 671 DIG-R-TACH Series 16 earth drilling attachment is intended for smaller hydraulic systems, whereas the Series 24 is designed for larger systems.  

Saw follows random crack patterns

Designed to follow random crack patterns in asphalt and concrete surfaces, General Equipment Company’s CS8 Random Crack Saw utilizes 8-inch diameter, dry cut-type diamond blades to produce smooth-sided cuts for proper crack filling procedures. Power is supplied by an 11-horsepower Honda engine equipped with a Cyclone-type air filter system for maximum protection against fine-grained dust contamination. An available propane engine conversion allows use in confined areas where gasoline exhaust fumes are not permissible. A centre-mounted blade configuration allows the CS8 to centre pivot about its own axis to more easily follow random crack patterns. The configuration is intended to maximize blade life by minimizing undercutting. Maximum cutting width is 0.5 inches and maximum straight-line cutting depth is 1.5 inches. Other standard features include an infinitely adjustable blade-height control with quick-release lever and 3-inch diameter vacuum dust control port.

The SC-42 expands the SC-Series to a total of eight breakers to fit carriers from 2,200 to 30,900 pounds (1 – 14 metric tons), suf- ficiently satisfying the needs and requirements of the skidsteer, backhoe loader, and mini and mid-size excavator markets.

Professional hole diggers

General Equipment’s 300 Series professional hole diggers provide the performance and power needed to handle heavy-duty digging projects. A four-cycle, 3,600-rpm Honda GXV140 five-horsepower gasoline engine powers the series, and a Lo Tone muffler reduces operating sound. A resistor-type spark plug helps with starting. To increase operator control, a Magura twist-grip throttle is positioned to maximize hand and arm strength. The heavy-duty, spring-return throttle provides precise control within the operator’s hand. Multiple driveshaft options make the 300 Series adaptable so that existing inventories can be accommodated.
