Augers are designed to make drilling into the ground easier with the spiral mechanism. Available in both mechanical and manual versions, at Direct Trades Supply we have a range of augers and drill bits suitable for all projects and uses. Mechanical augers are also popular for drilling into wood for a precise hole without excessive pressure. If you are using an auger for gardening purposes this can be extremely beneficial for the plants as it allows the roots to settle in the ground quicker.
Fence clamps are used to secure a range of different fences together. Clamps are made for temporary use, removing the need for permanent fixtures. Our Hot Dipped Galvanised Clamps will withstand all Australian climates. Don’t settle for cheap imitations of fence clamps, these can damage your fence beyond repair so be sure to visit Direct Trades Supply for quality and cost effective products.
At Direct Trades Supply we stock a range of fencing pliers for all different types of wires that are designed with more strength and capability than a typical domestic set. Fencing Pliers should be thought of as a ‘jack of all trades’, they can be used as a hammer, feature a claw on the back end for removing stubborn staples, and crimp jaws for fencing or electrical work.
Gripples or Crimps are essential for Electric Fencing. These handy tools will join together two ends of wire by simple pushing the end of the wire into the gripple. As soon as any pulling motion or pressure is applied to the wire, the gripple will clamp down on the wire and secure it in place. Gripples are reusable and retensionable. Crimps are designed for one-time use and need to be clamped onto the fence to stay in place. There is no doubt these products will save you time and energy when constructing an electric fence.
Saving you time and energy, a mechanical post rammer makes installing fences a lot easier. USed for driving posts and other similar items into the ground with minimal effort. Most are made of a heavy steel pipe with handles on either side for ease. Manual Post Rammers work in the same way but require more manual labour to use. Both mechanical and manual versions of a post rammer are designed to minimise damage to the top of the fence post. Always wear appropriate PPE when operating a Post Rammer to minimise risk of injury.
