The pilot auger assembly can be used with a Shaver HD-10 post driver when the ground is dry and compacted. In some cases, a pilot hole is all that may be required in order to get the post started in the ground.
Note: This pilot auger assembly fits current model Shaver drivers that are equipped with the Salame valve. Older valve brands (Gresen and Prince) will not accomodate this pilot auger attachment.
Modification of the driver channel is required by welding C-shaped plates to the lower portion of the main driving channel. The pilot auger slots into the C-plate, and the driving ram provides down pressure to push the auger into the ground.
