Post: STIHL – BT 131 and 230 auger

Powerful machines for pitting and planting
 
You need a powerful auger when digging pits for planting or fencing, and it makes sense to invest in equipment that can get a job done faster and easier. STIHL machines are tough and resilient and up to any digging task. Research shows that trees planted in auger-dug pits grow at a faster rate than those planted by hand, so not only does the use of an auger speed up the planting process, saving time and reducing labour costs, it also speeds up the trees’ growing process. What a win!
 
The high performance STIHL BT 131 one-man auger from STIHL has been developed especially for the challenging conditions of silviculture. Ideal for digging post holes, large scale planting projects, environmental restoration and construction projects, this cost-effective and ergonomic machine features a powerful, fuel efficient 1.4kW 4-MIX® engine with an enlarged fuel tank for longer work periods with fewer stops for refuelling. It also features a vertical pleated air filter for improved air supply quality and extended service life.  
The BT 131 is lightweight for all-day operation, and other user-friendly features include reduced emissions, a low-vibration handle frame, and large support cushion.
 
Its semi-automatic choke lever facilitates a simplified starting procedure that reduces the chance of flooding, while the STIHL Quickstop® auger brake automatically stops the bit from turning if it hits an underground obstruction. The STIHL BT 131 delivers impressive power, cost-effective performance, accurate control and operator comfort.

The STIHL BT 230 model has a 2-stroke motor and is lightweight and compact at just 10.9kg, with uncomplicated features for easy handling, servicing and maintenance. This 40 cc auger is able to produce even bigger holes up to 30 cm in diameter, so it is ideal for the planting of larger trees and poles. It is also extremely robust, with a support frame that protects the engine unit on all sides. The use of a market-standard 20mm connection adds to this auger’s adaptability and convenience as this allows the fitment to the frame of most standard auger bits on the market today. A special STIHL adaptor facilitates the attachment of various STIHL auger models.
 
Offering professional-grade performance and comfort, these STIHL augers make planting and fencing faster, simpler and more labour-efficient. These machines are tough enough for what you need, when you need it.
