Position Earth Auger Assembly so that boom/dipper may be moved horizontally and stopped over intended hole
site. To be able to see Auger, when digging, locate first hole site in either 10 to 11 or 1 to 2 o' clock position, as
Move SEE engine RPM rocker type control switch (1) from "LO" position (Idle) to "HI" (2000 RPM) (para. 2-2
Do not begin hole digging if auger is swinging. Wait until it stops before preceding.
Move Auger controls and position Auger center point at center of intended hole. Slowly lower dipper and boom
until the Auger center point touches ground.
Move boom, dipper, and auger rotational lever backward, as needed, to gently rotate and push Auger into
ground. If Auger rotation binds or bogs down, ease up on controls and reverse direction (para. 2-2 Controls).
Auger rotational lever must cause Auger to rotate clockwise when lever is moved backward
(towards operator). If rotational direction is reversed, check Auger kit installation for reversed
hydraulic hose connections (para. 4-13 thru 4-15).
