Part Number: 1M5C-H

The Ground Hog Inc Model 1M5C is a rugged and reliable mechanical one-man earth drill that puts the power of the C-71-5H two-man earth drill in the hands of one operator.

The 1M5C uses the same time-tested transmission as our C-71-5 Two-Man earth drill that has proven to be a reliable performer for over 40 years in the rental and fence industries. The transmission is an efficient worm drive design using heavy duty aluminum castings and large tapered roller bearings as well as our industry standard 7/8” square auger drive.

Power is transferred to the gearbox through an automotive-type tubular driveshaft with heavy duty U-joints and carrier bearings. The 1M5C uses heavy duty steel construction throughout and a right angle frame design that minimizes operator fatigue by eliminating torque kick back.

The large pneumatic tires on the 1M5C make the unit easy to maneuver around the jobsite whether it be hard ground, loose soil or grass. All of the operator controls are conveniently located at the handlebars and the handlebars can pivot to different positions to allow for normal digging as well as close-up digging allowing you to dig right up next to obstacles such as walls or fences. The 1M5C makes easy work of serious post hole digger jobs.
