Dry Auger Boring

Dry Auger Boring is the drilling technique also known as bed boring and under road boring. This technique is often suitable for smaller jobs like road crossings, under driveways and where trees/ landscaping cannot be harmed and/or removed.

At AV Drilling our unique equipment enables us to perform auger boring where conventional directional drills cannot fit. We are suitably equipped for drilling works in difficult access areas as minimal lead in room is required for our under boring method. This is advantageous when auger boring under or alongside:

  • Footpaths
  • Buildings
  • Gardens & Retaining Walls
  • Driveways
  • Concrete and Pavement
  • Roadways

Auger boring is a form of non- destructive digging as this drilling technique allows existing infrastructure to remain undisturbed. Being a form of dry boring, mud does not eventuate in the process of auger boring, therefore mess is minimised which is beneficial in urban areas with high density population and busy workplace environments.

Our experience and expertise in Auger Boring allows us to bore in all types of clay and shale as well as being equipped to drill in conditions like sand and rock, etc. Bore hole diameter capabilities are 50mm to 600mm plus. Dry under road boring is cost effective as mud removal and tip fees are avoided. Upon completion conduits are installed and are ready for our clients to use.
