Exceptional service differentiates Mclaren from its competitors." - Rob Pagacz (Bobcat S300 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "Tires are still working out great.

I have the TDF series track." - Scott Robinson (Takeuchi TL 150 compact track loader);                                                                                           "Your Protrac rubber have saved me thousands of dollars! I rented a track machine for one month prior to having your tracks, that rental cost would have covered the cost of the McLarens. I was expecting to have bought a new machine, but there has been no reason to as the OTTs have added lift capacity, stability, a softer ride, and of course traction beyond my wildest expectations. My machine rep is not happy with your product, no sale for him... Could not be happier, literally!" - Simon Huxtable (Bobcat 763 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The up front cost is greater than others but quality and performance far outweigh the cost." - Bearden Services (Bobcat S250 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The sales rep that handled my purchase was knowledgeable, polite, and knew his product...

How To Select the Ideal Auger Attachment for Your Skid Steer

How To Select the Ideal Auger Attachment for Your Skid Steer

When setting yourself up for success during a project, making sure you have the right equipment is key. While skid steer attachments are incredibly versatile, not all of them will work with your particular type of skid steer. If you’re going to use an auger attachment for a task, it’s imperative to pick the right one for your machine. This is how to select the ideal auger attachment for your skid steer and what to consider when making your choice.

Understand Your Skid Steer Specifications

One of the first things you should do when searching for a skid steer auger attachment is to familiarize yourself with the machine’s build and capabilities. Not all of them have the same features, and these differences can affect how well an attachment works with a machine. Hydraulic flow and weight capacity, in particular, are crucial to the attachment’s function. If your skid steer is a lower flow, it won't be able to support a higher flow attachment. You’ll want to find something less powerful. Additionally, your skid steer needs to handle the weight of the attachment for it to function correctly.

Know Your Project Needs

As you select the ideal auger attachment for your skid steer, it’s important to know your project’s specific needs. The type of project you're working on may require a specific auger and auger bit setup. Understanding your goals can help you find the right configuration for your project. Because of this, you’ll want to take time to assess what you'll be doing and what you'll need. This includes monitoring soil density and other factors that potentially affect an auger’s performance. You may need specialized rock bits for particularly hard ground, depending on the job site’s terrain.

Buy From a Quality Manufacturer

Above all, you want to make sure you’re getting your auger attachment from a reputable manufacturer. When you buy from a manufacturer dedicated to quality, you're guaranteed a premium product that will perform well. McLaren goes the extra mile to ensure our auger attachments are the best in the business, and we’ll work with you to ensure the model you pick meets all your needs.
