What power tool fits auger bits like this? I need to drill a 5/8" hole 7" deep into a tree and this would seem to be the bit, but it won't fit my old drill. Somebody recommended a Bosch hammer drill, but it has an SDS-Plus chuck so I assume that won't fit right. I'm trying to find the right power tool and bit to do this job.
Asked by: Phil
I used the Ridgid 8.5 Amp 1/2 in. heavy duty 2‑Speed hammer drill to drill similar holes and it fit the chuck fine. Note, this particular auger bit is so aggressive without adequate marital ejection that it ended up stuck in the post several times as I drilled through a 6" cedar fence post (see the graduated screw tip). I would not recommend this bit for that type of job, unless drilling soft pine or the like. Subsequent holes, I used a spoon bit. It removed less material per revelation, but did not bind, and therefore took less time to drill deep holes in harder wood. Just a tip.

Are there extensions for this bit and its 5/8" cousin (to make them longer)?

Asked by: PrunePruner
Thank you for your question. We do not offer extensions for the auger bits.

Daredevil 5/8 in. x 17 in. Auger Bit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves time and energy This bit was worth the price. I just finished a pavilion project with lots of pressure treated beams, columns, and headers. This bit drilled 100+ holes thru 6x6, 6x8, 2x12 headers sandwiched with 6x6. All the lumber was PT and all was green and wet. This bit pulled itself thru the wood quick and effortlessly. It made short work of a tough job. Be careful, you need to keep reversing the drill and pulling the bit out to clean it every few inches. If you don't, you'll bury the bit and never get it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did the trick! I had nine inches of treated wood to drill, so I could insert a ten inch carraige bolt. I had twelve of these to do. This bit literally "pulled" itself through the wood. I had to pull back on the drill to keep the cut debris from clogging up the hole. First time I ever drilled a hole by pulling, instead of pushing. Fast and clean cut holes.

Took a couple of times to understand that holding the drill/bit level and plumb gives a perfect hole that aligns to the other side.
