Could I use this to dig a hole for a tree stake/support? Also, would an impact drill work better for this application?
Asked by: Andreas
Yes, this product will work for digging a stake support, be careful, if soil is rocky, the auger will grab and could cause injury. NO an impact drill would not be better, you stand a better chance of being injured.

Will this auger go thru hardpan soil?

Will this auger go thru hardpan soil?
Asked by: CJM
I don't know what hardpan soil is. I used it on fairly hard soil. All I did was soak the ground and let the water sink so that it was mud. Wait until the water sinks in so that you don't splash the water all over. The auger worked wonderfully.

The very first time I used the auger, the drill end bend just beyond my electric drill. And I was trying to aerate my compost, so the ground where I was drilling was very soft. I don’t think it work for more than 1 minute! I am very disappointed with the quality of the auger.

Occasionally I hit rocks that I did not realize were below the soil, but it did not break, the drill just stopped. Once this caused it to become dislodged from my drill so I just inserted it again and continued. This worked much better than I expected and I would highly recommend it. Plus I never knew I had so many rocks under my garden. It also works well for very short garden fencing.

Drilled about 2" deep each time then pulled the auger out to get the clay off. Repeated this until hole was 20" deep. Very pleased.

I hit a pingpong-ball-sized river-washed rock and bent the shaft right where it inserts into the drill chuck. I was disappointed, but maybe my experience was unique.

I bought it to drill 12 inch holes for T-posts and it was so easy. I could have even dug the holes deeper, probably up to 24 inches if I needed to. The guys at the Home Depot store told me to use a T post driver but I figured there must be a better way even though I know very little about tools and things. Upon researching, I found this which is much, much easier and cheaper. I'm a 66 year old woman and don't have the desire to ruin my shoulders using that very heavy post driver and banging it down from overhead. I just wet the ground and drilled the holes with this. I may never have to dig another hole in the ground again , I'll just drill them!

I was looking for a bulb coring tool that didn't rely on hand-generated force. Those products were only available by shipping, so had to try this augur. I was genuinely surprised at the effectiveness and efficiency of this augur. It works well in mulchy soil, and even in clay soils. It is as easy to use as a standard drill bit. It turned a day-long project into a 2-hour job.
