LEE'S SUMMIT, MO (October 16, 2019) – Billy Goat is pleased to introduce the AGR1300H Auger, the only dedicated self-propelled auger on the market in its class. The unit features the highest bit torque in its class; lift assist struts; and a patent-pending Z-Link for straight-line drilling with limited repositioning - for unmatched functionality and one-person operation.

The AGR1300H features Billy Goat’s intuitive hydro-drive controls that are common to our sod cutter, aerators, overseeder and brush cutters for ease of customer experience across multiple products, fatigue-free transport, and standardized fleet management. Variable speed forward and reverse is standard and the drive is separate from the drill, eliminating the need to switch to drive or drill mode.

For uneven or hilly terrain, a foot-operated spring loaded parking brake on both rear wheels help to stabilize the machine and a rotating, lockable head makes it easy for straight-line drilling. Pivoting front casters and high flotation rear turf tires provide smooth transport to the job site and from hole-to-hole. The rig also fits through a 36-inch gate seamlessly.

For customers’ simple transport, the unit fits in the back of a 6’ pickup truck with the bit on and eliminates towing. And, for customers’ ease of operation, Billy Goat’s Text to Video* featured from a label on the machine, readily offers instruction for start-up and operation via video from a mobile device.

The unit comes standard with a 13 HP, 390cc Honda GXV that powers a 10 GPM pump/motor package and produces up to 350 foot pounds of torque for the highest bit torque in its class and easily handles 2-to-18-inch bits.
