Since 1970, customers worldwide have come to know American Augers as a dedicated manufacturer of underground technology equipment, which includes state-of-the-art horizontal directional drills, earth boring machines, mud pump and cleaning systems, oil and gas drill rigs, and various product tooling or accessory items. Each of the product categories produce equipment that maintains rugged, unsurpassed power, and industry leading designs
HORIZONTAL DIRECTIONAL DRILLS
American Augers was the first HDD manufacturer to eliminate chain and introduce a rack and pinion carriage design which is now the industry standard. American Augers still maintains the distinction of manufacturing the largest maxi-rig system available on the market today with 1,100,000 lbsof thrust and pullback capabilities. Innovations like these have been important to staying current with marketplace needs where the ability to perform larger pipeline utility installation, and crossing projects are vitally important to being successful in today’s industry.
EARTH BORING MACHINES
Auger boring was changed forever when American Augers introduced its new line of “Next Generation” boring machines. These machines are equipped with the fast return system known as “Quik Tran”, and the “Quik Split” design, which allows the machine to be separated into sections to allow for lighter and faster lifts into and out of the auger boring pit.
MUD PUMP AND CLEANING SYSTEMS
American Augers recognizes the essential part that drilling fluid (mud) plays in successful directional drilling/auger boring, so we have designed mud equipment for jobs of every size, including stand-alone mud pumps that can be used to power the biggest mud motor. Our mud cleaners use linear shakers instead of random shakers (currently used by our competitors) to increase the efficiency the driller has in being able to recycle mud!
GAS & OIL DIRECTIONAL DRILLIING
American Augers has begun to diversify its product offerings and in 2007 launched its first foray into the oil and gas marketplace when it introduced the American Directional Drill branded VR-500 vertical drilling rig. American Augers designed the VR-500 through its can-do engineering staff, which created a product that puts an emphasis on Speed, Performance, and Safety for an industry which continues to experience exponential growth.
Through its products, American Augers is committed to manufacturing equipment that helps preserve the sanctity of the global environment. We have accomplished this by reducing noise and/or emission outputs and emphasizing the fact that trenchless technology equipment requires little or no open cutting with very minimal impact on natural surfaces, features, or habitats.
American Augers is an industry leader that values the manufacturing of equipment that is not a cost of doing business, but an investment in our customer's success.
