Self-propelled auger

The Billy Goat hydro-drive self-propelled auger is designed for ease of operation and productivity.

Billy Goat‘s AGR1300H auger is the only dedicated self-propelled auger on the market.  The unit features the highest bit torque in its class; lift assist struts; and a patent-pending Z-Link for straight line drilling with limited repositioning - for unmatched functionality and one-man operation.

Billy Goat‘s AGR1300H auger is the only dedicated self-propelled auger on the market.

The AGR1300H features Billy Goat’s intuitive hydro-drive controls that are common to our sod cutter, aerators, overseeder and brush cutters for ease of customer experience across multiple products, fatigue free transport, and standardized fleet management. Variable-speed forward and reverse is standard and the drive is separate from drill, eliminating the need to switch to drive or drill mode.

For uneven or hilly terrain, a foot-operated spring-loaded parking brake on both rear wheels help to stabilize the machine and a rotating, lockable head makes it easy for straight line drilling. Pivoting front casters and high flotation rear turf tires provide smooth transport to the job site and from hole-to-hole. The rig also fits through a 36-inch gate seamlessly.


For simple transport, the unit fits in the back of a 6-foot pickup truck with the bit on and eliminates towing. For customers’ ease of operation, Billy Goat’s Text to Video featured from a label on the machine, readily offers instruction for start-up and operation via video from a mobile device.

The unit comes standard with a 13-horsepower, 390cc Honda GXV that powers a 10 gpm pump/motor package and produces up to 350 foot-pounds of torque for the highest bit torque in its class, and easily handles 2- to 18-inch bits.
