At the HIRE16 expo on the Gold Coast, CROMMELINS launched a number of new and exciting products for the rental industry. Two of these units included the CROMMELINS Groundhog One-man Post Hole Digger and the CROMMELINS Star Picket & Post Driver.

The CROMMELINS Groundhog Post Hole Digger is a rugged, yet lightweight, one-man post hole digging machine powered by the reliable 4-stroke engine. The built in ‘’slipping clutch’’ will disengage when hitting hidden obstacles, and a dead man switch is also fitted, all to ensure safety and ease of use for the operator.


Four auger sizes are available 2, 4, 6, 8” (50-200mm) making this machine ideal for fencing, tree planting and general landscaping use.

The 2’’ and 3’’ CROMMELINS Star Picket Drivers will effortlessly drive star pickets and poles (up to 3’’ in diameter) effortlessly into the hardest of ground. Also powered by the reliable 4-stroke Subaru engine for long life performance, along with high impact driving force and ergonomic anti-vibration handles. These machines can be comfortably used for many hours.


Reducer sleeves are available for both units for a snug fit over the post. A carry cradle is also available and is an ideal accessory for storage and transport.
