used for drilling include dirt, rock, trees, wood, cement, and more. It is quite common to see an auger on just
about any large-scale construction site.
An auger works by using a rotating helical screw blade called a flighting. This screw blade acts as a screw
conveyor to remove the drilled-out material. The auger not only allows you to drill into a surface, but it also
helps you quickly and efficiently remove the drilled material from the hole.
