Finding the best equipment for your digging requirements especially during construction activities can always be a daunting task. With drilling, there is one key important factor that one has to put into consideration when choosing foundation drilling tools or equipment. That is the rate of rotation speed.With a greater rotation speed it can only mean a better and faster penetration in drilling.Other important factors are of course the type of the ground,how the cuttings are removed, and method of penetration.
Some grounds are often known, you know the soil structure and where hard rocks are found. By knowing the nature of the ground, you will be well prepared to know when to change the bit and how frequent that would be. Trust me you will not be looking forward to having delays in digging activities.
In terms of removing the cuttings, for example at our homes we normally use a spade to remove cuttings after digging. These types of technical drillings are sophisticated and therefore a spade obviously cannot be of any use here. With drilling equipment, there are specific ways they function to remove the dirt as a result of drilling. One of the common ways drilling equipment’s remove dirt is through direct push. With the direct push option the dirt is displaced sideways, not conveyed to the ground surface. Sometimes there are situations when displacing cuttings is a nightmare, and during such times the drilling equipment’s which have embraced direct push become limited in function.
One common rock foundation drilling tools are rock augers. Rock augers are a choice for most drilling activities especially in cutting hard rocks because of their double flight design. Additionally, their prices are a bit lower compared to other foundation drilling tools.
Naturally during the process of digging, because of wear and tear, parts of your digging equipment may need to be replaced. In some times replacing them can be an expensive affair. It is often advised that for example during the start of digging that the uses of damaged bits, already gone through wear and tear, are employed as there is no familiarity with the ground. Meaning,at this point the possibilities of damages occurring are often very high.
In terms of replacing rock teeth for augers, there are a number of different types and quality available. What is more important though is that the rock teeth for augers are able to fit in and also it is of the quality required to avoid any frustrations that may arise out of drilling.
There are a number of merchants selling used rock augers and also there are companies that can be contracted for your drilling needs.Of course, used rock augers will be a little less cheaply compared to newer ones. The other option is of course, leasing of the foundation drilling tools possible through various companies and other dealers.
