Machines have been man’s best friend since their origin and have helped men to do many works at a time. Earth Auger is one such machine that helps cut soil and hard rock as well for irrigation and gardening.
Gardening is a work that includes a lot of work which involves digging of soil and its preparation and then maintenance of the crops and others. In each of the process, either a specific kind of work is involved or a manual application is done.
Among the different kinds of tools involved, Earth Auger is an important one. This machine is used to make holes in the ground and is built with a rotating metal pipe or rod with either one blade or more than one blades attached at the lower half. This tool can easily get into the earth and dig big holes. The blades are super fine and are used to dig holes deep into the Earth. The blades can easily crack the upper layer of the soil to enter inside and make a hole.
Augers are generally of two types
1) Manual Earth Auger or handheld one
This kind of auger can be operated by hand and can do small and light weight works. This one is much in use in case of gardening or plantation.
2) Machine Auger
This kind of auger is operated through switches and is used for heavy industrial works.
The manual or machine-powdered Earth Augers can be used for digging holes through many surfaces like soil, wood, pavement, stone, etc. This machine is useful in different works like digging a hole in the Earth to breaking of ice to any other useful work that involves deep drilling or cracking in.
Whatever the kind of auger be, the shape, size and other features are almost same. Augers use a helical screw blade that enables them to dig through a surface and also route the displacement material out of a hole. Though the basic functions are same, a wide variety exists due to their difference in applications.
There are many kinds of manual augers and they are:
A) Wood augers
B) Ice augers
C) Earth augers
D) Soil augers
Auger machines are also used for heavy industrial duties. The direct drive augers use a directly mounted hydraulic motor that provides a balance of torque revolutions. There are planetary augers which are powered by gears to provide high level service like cutting of a hard rock.
After the soil is dug, water is spread on the soil to soften it. These pumps are operated by motors that work through electricity. Usually these are set near a river or some other water body from where these help to drain water and pour it on the fields. The electrical water pumps work fast and produce good result to the gardeners or agricultural workers.
In the modern day, irrigation is not only man’s effort that shows result, but machines have delivered faster results in lesser time. Machines have reduced the manual labour and have helped people in many ways. There are different types of water pumps available in the market so you can use any one of them to deliver faster result.
The prices of the water pumps differ on the basis of the work they deliver. There are also solar water pumps that use the solar energy to start and operate.
