Jeffrey Machine announces the addition of a new tool to their lineup. The Econo Auger still has their standard fabricated drive box and pin, 1”thick flighting with lifting eye hole and Z-pattern hard surfacing for wear protection, 1”thick wall tubing center shaft and .990 holders and .990 HB conical teeth and they are offering them in sizes ranging from 12”-60” in diameter.


This tool is being built alongside standard augers but has several differences that make it more economical. The Econo Auger does not come with the following:  drive box gussets connecting the drive box to the flighting to decrease the chance of box to stem failure, wear pads on the flights which greatly increase the life of the auger, one hundred percent bevel on the flighting to maximize weld penetration, flighting laminate which greatly increases the strength of the flighting for crowd and torque, .990 tri-holders which allow customers  to run three types of teeth with one tool such as the conical teeth, dirt shovel teeth and the dragon’s tooth. Any combination of these options can be added for an additional charge to customize your tool to fit your specific drilling needs.


“This auger is built for clients who need a budget-friendly option. You’re still going to get the Jeffrey Machine quality, just at a lower cost,” says Jeffrey Sager, owner.


“During a recent sales meeting, the topic of making sure we are fulfilling all the needs of our customers came up. Immediately after that, our engineers started working on a concept design and along with the sales team and production teams input, the first EconoAuger was produced. We are very happy with the success of this new product and how it has been received in the industry. We already have a good number of them out in the field,” he concluded.


Jeffrey Machine’s corporate office is in Birmingham, Alabama with a secondary sales location in Euless, Texas. For more information about the complete line of Jeffrey Machine tooling, visit
