Auger drilling, which is a digging method that a large helical drilling part gets out the soil from the earth. Different types of auger drillers are available today, and they are widely used in agricultural works. In this study, an 300 mm diameter auger drill was modeled, for agricultural works, and it was analyzed efficiently in Autodesk Inventor software with the help of Nastran in computer-aided design (CAD) module. According to the analysis, Von Misses stress analysis result was found as maximum 2266 MPa and minimum 0 MPa. Also, Safety Factor analysis result was found as maximum 15 uL and minimum 0.11 uL.
