For better fuel efficiency and emissions reduction the 240 hole digger from General Equipment sports a four-stroke, 1.6-horsepower Subaru Robin gasoline engine. The four- stroke engine also eliminates the need to carry and mix oil with your fuel. The one-man hole digger produces 55 foot-pounds of torque and its all-metal centrifugal clutch slips when overloaded or when the bit makes contact with a buried obstacle. It accepts augers from 2 to 8 inches in diameter and digs to 30 inches, which can be increased another 15 inches with a non-flighted extension.
