Remote-controlled auger

EASILY MOVE augers with a new remote-controlled system called the Swinger. The two-wheel device attaches to a 10- or 13-in. tube with just four bolts and two worm-gear clamps. Power is supplied by a 110-volt, ¼-hp gear motor.

The Swinger is simply designed with a forward/reverse toggle switch on the mail electrical box and a rocker switch on the handheld remote. A hydraulic jack transfers the weight to the wheels to eliminate wheel slippage.

Price, with one remote, is $1,380. Contact Gary Ruppert, Dept. FIN, 1809 280th Ave., Currie, NM 56123, 507/763-3490, visit or, or circle 151.
