With a maximum theoretical output torque of 2,119 ft-lbs, the new Digga Mini Loader Auger Drives are more powerful than comparable units, according to the manufacturer, Iowa-based Digga North America.

The Digga 1MDS2 and 1MDS4 auger drives are engineered for use on mini loaders and compact tool carriers. The new planetary gearbox-driven auger drives will work effectively on auxiliary flows of between 6-16 gallons per minute, Digga says, accommodating the wide range of units on the market today. They come with a unit-specific mounting plate for easy installation and set-up.

The Model 1MDS2 Auger Drive is designed for simple applications with Single Axis 2-way swing capabilities (FWD-REV). The Model 1MDS4 is designed for applications where Dual Axis 4-way swing capabilities (FWD-REV-LFT-RGT) are required.

Digga Drilling Drives are covered by a 5-year warranty on the planetary gearbox, a 3-year warranty on the hydraulic motor, as well as a lifetime shaft pull-out warranty. For more details about the product and its manufacturer, visit Digga’s website here.

Dust collector designed for metal shavings

Magna-Matic Corp. has developed a dust collector for metal grinding applications. The MAG-200, which is expected to be ready for shipment by mid-July, can be used with all Magna-Matic lawn mower blade sharpeners or any grinding machine, the company says.

Magna-matic-MAG-200-dust-collectorIt features 2 stages of air filtration (MERV 8), and is available with an optional 3rd stage of filtration (up to MERV 13). The MAG-200 safely draws live sparks, grit and dust associated with all dry grinding processes with an impeller and contains them in a full steel body.

Particles and dust are filtered from the air exiting the machine.

Magna-Matic says the dust collector will significantly improve working conditions for employees sharpening lawn mower blades while keeping your maintenance shop cleaner.
