The Ground Hog HD99 is a towable hydraulic earth-drill that is designed to be powerful, easy to use and require very little maintenance.
With its 9hp Honda engine, the HD99 can easily turn any of our available augers (4-inch, 6-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch, and/or 12-inch diameter). The use of hydraulics allows the HD99 to have variable auger speed and reverse which is very useful if the auger gets stuck. The HD99 is designed to take the load off of the operator by being almost perfectly balanced with an 8-inch auger attached, and the right angle design eliminates torque to the operator. There are also 3 handlebar positions that allow for normal drilling, as well as close up drilling next to an obstacle such as a wall or fence.
Large highway rated tires make the HD99 easy to maneuver around the job site and there is a locking mechanism on the digging head that allows the auger to be held up and out of the way for moving the machine around the job without having to disconnect the auger.
The Ground Hog HD99 is a powerful, well designed earth-drill you can rely on
