Repairing vs Replacing Augers

As any savvy piling contractor knows, augers are a key drilling component often required for a variety of groundwork projects. Whether utilising CFA or Rotary augers, the success of a project is dependent on the overall condition and performance output of the equipment used. Regardless of the type of work being undertaken, auger wear and tear is inevitable. Therefore, it is imperative that apparatus and drilling accessories, like augers, are replaced, or in this case repaired and refurbished to resemble their original condition.

Often repairing an auger is more cost effective and environmentally sustainable than purchasing a brand-new piece of equipment. We support the notion of prolonging the life of any drilling machinery and equipment, which is why our workshop team offer a complete range of restoration services. Even if the auger was not originally purchased from us, our team can restore any type, brand, and size back to its factory condition.

The majority of our services can be executed at a fraction of the cost of replacing a damaged auger with a brand new, like for like piece of equipment. Our workshop team have over one-hundred years of combined industry experience, knowledge, and expertise; and all work undertaken by our team is conducted in a professional manner. We operate a ‘drop off and collect’ repair service. Moreover, our team will organise any repair work around the client’s schedule, resulting in a quick turnaround and ensuring the finished equipment is able to return to site as soon as possible.

Piling Equipment Ltd are committed to operating within a circular economy and reducing waste as much as possible. We believe in extending the life of your equipment as much as possible in order to combat unnecessary material usage and reduce financial output. Typically, augers are able to be built and rebuilt infinitely throughout their lifespan, meaning refurbishment is often more economical than a total replacement. We are advocates for preventative maintenance. By regularly servicing your equipment will enable your machinery to work more efficiently, ultimately saving time, fuel, and money in the long term.
