Different types of augers are design for different jobs. One example of a very special auger is the “kragevreter” used to remove a thick floating layer of vegetation in a national park. This auger could remove a one meter thick layer of roots and vegetation. For this application the dredge pump was also adapted to cope with the long roots and big pieces of soil. Other uses of auger are precise dredging operations, evening the bedding after dredging or remove thin layers of soil.
