Little Beaver’s new HYD-NTV11H UN-Towable Drill offers an easily transportable solution for one-man hole digging projects. Incorporating heavy-duty construction and high quality features, the unit offers a more economical option, without sacrificing the power, efficiency, and reliability of similar towable units. Safe and productive for any drilling application, the unit is ideal for numerous industries including landscaping, fence and sign installation, and park and recreation departments. The NTV11H drill is easy to transport and maintain, making it an ideal addition to any rental center’s fleet.
Unlike similar units that only offer a 9-horsepower engine, the NTV11H is built with an 11-horsepower Honda GX340V engine, resulting in a 10 percent increased power advantage over competitive models. Hydraulic pressure of 2,500-psi and an operating speed of 150 RPM further enhance power output.
Equipped with 16-inch semi-pneumatic tires, the NTV11H easily moves across jobsites and pivots into digging position without causing damage to delicate lawns and turf. Because it’s easy to maneuver, the drill can operate in places that are inaccessible to skid steers and tractors. And for added convenience, the attached one-man handle enables drilling near buildings and in other difficult-to-access areas.
To ease loading and unloading, the NTV11H features lightweight construction and a removable power pack. By detaching the power pack, the overall weight is reduced by 50 percent, allowing the machine to be transported in two parts. Unlike most drills of similar power and size that must be towed behind a truck or loaded onto a trailer, the NTV11H can easily be moved to the jobsite in the back of a pickup truck or SUV. Quick-disconnect fittings also allow the operator to connect the power source to other types of hydraulic accessories including post drivers and hydraulic tampers.
An optional slide-in receiver hitch offers an additional transportation method. The user-friendly E-Z load bracket is designed to fit in any two-inch receiver, commonly found on most pickup trucks and SUVs. Simply secure the unit in the hitch, crank up the machine until it stops, and insert the pin to lock it in place.
The balanced and torque-free design of the NTV11H enhances operator safety and convenience. An integrated forward and reverse auger rotation component protects the user if the auger gets caught under an obstruction, such as a rock or tree root. For added safety, a built in pressure relief valve has also been incorporated. When the drill reaches a certain hydraulic pressure, the valve releases and the auger stops, protecting the operator from potential injury.
Constructed of sturdy steel with a durable powder-coated finish, the NTV11H drill is built for extended service life. Heavy-duty construction and an advanced hydraulic system also help to reduce maintenance and eliminate repair hassles.
To increase product versatility, three styles of auger cutting tips are available. The standard tip can be used for drilling in typical ground conditions, including sandy soils and softer clay. For tougher jobs, a carbide tip is available and useful for solid materials such as hard clays and asphalt. Both augers are offered in 1 ½-inch to 18-inch sizes. Finally, the heavy-duty tip is ideal for harder soils that are mixed with gravel or small rocks, and is available in 7 sizes ranging from 6 to 16 inches. All three augers feature a convenient spring-loaded snap button that secures the auger to the drill head, eliminating the need for pins or bolts. The units are compatible with any Little Beaver auger, and will also accept adaptors that can be used to attach various competitive augers.
The NTV11H drill is backed by Little Beaver’s two-year warranty, with the engine covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
