  • Solid Surface - Choose a surface that is solid enough to support the outriggers. Placement of the outriggers will alter the balance of the truck, so the surface must be solid enough to support the weight of the truck. Check the ground for any hollowed structures that could give in, such as culverts as well as any buried nettings that could become entangled with the auger. Ground the truck in case a buried live wire gets caught by the bit.

  • Safe Distance - Keep workers at a safe distance from the auger, at least 30 feet away. When operating the equipment, always wear safety goggles to protect eyes from flying debris. Do not wear any clothing that could get caught on the rotating auger.

  • The development of the digger derrick has not only made the lives of utility workers easier, it has made the lives of everyone who uses utility services delivered via overhead lines a whole lot simper. It is also important for operators of this heavy-duty equipment to keep in mind that these machines can be potentially dangerous to operate and that all of the safety guidelines set forth above should be strictly followed. So keep all this in mind when looking for one at a digger sale and be thankful for the benefits of owning a digger derrick!
