The Danuser 8900 Hydraulic auger drive can be mounted on the side of a tractor loader bucket, This kit includes the 8900 auger drive with 2 9/16" output shaft (rated for 10-20 GPM), bucket mount on plate kit (mounting hardware not included), and 20ft of 3/4" hydraulic hose (quick couplers not included).
It is also available for 14-30 GPM in either 2" hex or 2 9/16" round. All motors are capable of turning up to a 36" auger.
Danuser's hydraulic tractor auger drives allow you to use your tractor's augers for all of the jobs you need by giving you the ability to reverse the rotation in the event the flighting gets stuck underneath a rock or root. The added benefit of being able to mount an auger on your tractor bucket gives you more flexibility in it's usage over a standard 3 point PTO auger.

Hi, I'm Ted from Everything Attachments and we're here today with the Danuser brand of hydraulic auger that can be used on a tractor or a skid-
This is kind of a unique unit. This looks like a regular hydraulic unit, because it is, and it has three different ways you can bolt this on, depending on what you're using. If you have just a tractor and you're a landscaper, or you're putting in lots of fence, then you have a few advantages with a hydraulic over a standard PTO unit.
This is a 3/4-inch thick plate with four holes in it, and this can be bolted to anything, like your front bucket, your rear bucket on an excavator, or a small backhoe on a tractor. It comes with two different pump sizes. You can do from 14 gallons per minute to 20. That would come with a 2 and 9/16 round shaft that's capable of up to a 36-inch auger bit. Or you can do a 14-30 gallon pump that can come with the 2 and 9/16 shaft or a 2-inch hex, which is usually used on skid-steers. It gives you a different selection of quality of bits and some different things you can do, like rock augers and some other things.
Danuser is a real stickler on safety. They built a really good shield where the fit is really tight where the auger connection is, where you can't even get your fingers up in there. So remember to keep your shields on.
Let's turn this around to the side, Peanut.
For instance, on this four post mount, if this were on a regular three point boom, then their heavy duty boom that Danuser makes would go in here, and your boom would go forwards.
You need this heavy 3/4 plating to take the torque that this thing is capable of when you're turning a 36 inch auger. There's a huge amount of torque that's going to be put out. Basically you have a planetary, which is a gear in the center with three gears around it. Then a big gear that it all goes in called a planetary bull gear, just like a skid-steer auger would have. This is basically the guts out of a skid-steer auger put into a casing that can be used in about three or four different ways; bucket mounted, regular boom mounted, skid-steer mounted - a lot of different ways you can do it.
It does come with either the 2 and 9/16 or the 2-inch hex if you order the bigger motor. You can see this is just your hydraulic motor here. That's what's going to do your turning. This is your reduction to slow it down to give you your torque. The big advantage for a hydraulic auger over a PTO driven auger is simply, if you're doing enough of it, and can justify the money, and want production, you've got reverse if you get caught under a rock or a root or something like that is probably the biggest advantage.
You'll never shear a bolt because the hydraulics would let this stall if it gets too much pressure. Your relief valve would open and it would just stall. So you're not going to be replacing sheared bolts, and you do have the ability to reverse if you need to.
We're going to show you this about three or four different ways with different mounts. It's a very versatile unit and being able to do it with 36-inch auger bits, you can pretty much do anything you want.
As you can see, it's going to work on a lot of different devices. We showed you how to work on the bucket hookup. This is a standard skid-steer universal mount that it would go on, so it will definitely go on a skid-
steer. Also, that's the same mount that would be on the front of most modern tractors. If you were putting this on the front of a tractor, it does also come with the option to get the 15, 20 and 25-foot hoses that you could run all the way back to your tractor to get your hydraulic flow.
This could come in the 2 and 9/16 or the 2-inch hex. If you've already got skid-steer augers, you'll probably go with the hex. If you've already got the round augers, then you can stay with the round, depending on what you want you want to do. There's two different flow motors. If you want the hex, you're going to have to be over 20 gallons per minute. If you want the 2 and 9/16, you can be from 14-20 gallons per minute. This particular auger head has so many combinations. We're going to try to do the best we can to show you all the different things it can do. You do still have your little hookup here that your hose will go through if you were putting it on your skid-steer or the front of your tractor or you could be using one of the bucket mounts.
Just to show you how versatile the 8900 series drive-head is from Danuser, here is the PTO driven boom that you would buy. This is the F8 boom that fits the 8900 series of drive unit. As you'll see, this is a 3-inch inside diameter tube, super heavy duty, and it's going to take the torque of a 36-
inch auger trying to twist that boom. It's got a real large rail welded on it here to give you strength so if you do get caught up under a rock or something, you're not going to bend your boom trying to pull it out. Not to mention, there's a lot of weight just on the dirt of a 36-inch auger and with the availability of being able to reverse it, because it's hydraulic, there's no good reason why you should have to be pulling it out. So that's another good feature of it being hydraulic.
This has casted pieces on the hoop here to give you extra strength that goes all the way through with the long pin. On the F8 boom, it comes down with a casted piece and has a regular top-link ball on the end that lets it flex in case you want to angle it on the side of a hill. It also is Category 1, 2, or 3 on your pins down here just depending on how you install that pin on the end of your hoop and what size tractor you're using.
This could be used on anything from probably a 40-50 horsepower large, compact tractor all the way up to the 150 horsepower tractors.
If you've got any problems or need to know anything about the gallons per minute required. If you want to do the boom hookup on the front, or you want to do the quick attachment on the front (which would be the standard Bobcat), or you want to do the rear regular standard PTO style hookup but without the PTO and using your hydraulics, just give us a call or an email at Everything Attachments. We'll make sure you get the complete combination you need for the purpose you're using it for.
