Three new auger bits available from Burndy have specialized drilling capabilities making them suitable for cableinstallations on utility poles made of hard treated wood, composite materials or fiberglass.

The Razor bit, made from hardened steel, is designed to cut fast, clean and straight into a variety of treated wood poles, Burndy says. Its cutting head incorporates a single spur and a design that scores and shapes the hole. The lead-screw design pulls the bit through the wood while the flute design evacuates debris.

Burndy’s Hollow Core and Solid Core auger bits are designed for use on both fiberglass and composite poles. According to the company, these carbide-tipped auger bits feature unique cutting edges and flute designs that are meant to withstand the rugged surfaces of composite materials, along with the ability to evacuate debris while keeping the bit centered during drilling.
