Auger Drill: Pre-Start Checklist Mobile App
The Auger Drill is a heavy moving machine with a mast capable of extending its reach vertically and horizontally.
How does it work?
Like all moving objects and reach extending devices, there are potential hazards associated with its use. These hazards will be minimized if the machine is properly inspected and maintained. The operators should use the Auger Drill: Pre-Start Checklist mobile app to ensure proper safe use of the auger drill. The app includes checklists for the following: daily checks - before start-up and weekly checks. Everyday before drilling, after the drill engine has reached normal operating temperature, place the transmission gear selector in 1st gear, letting the Kelly Bar rotate freely, making sure the drive train does not freeze up between shifts. Always keep extra shear pins with each unit.
