Earthquake Power Earth Augers GIE+EXPO attendees will want to take time to visit Earthquake to see the Earthquake Power Auger Package. It includes the E43 Earth Auger Powerhead combined with a heavy-duty 8-in. auger and Earthquake's Flex Coil shock absorber. The centerpiece of the package is the E43 Earth Auger Powerhead. The E43's ball bearing alloy gear transmission withstands the rigors of drilling into hard ground. Its large, block-style industrial air filter keeps dust and dirt out to protect the engine. The package includes Earthquake's Flex Coil shock absorber, which makes the tough job of drilling easier on the user, as well as an 8-in. auger with a fishtail point and replaceable cutting blades.
