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.

I originally purchased this to drill holes through the stump of an Ash tree so that I could use fertilizer to speed up the decay of the stump. However, the bit kept getting caught and it wouldn't drill. I used a 20v DeWalt drill, so definitely the drill had enough power (also tried various gears). I returned it because it didn't work for the purpose I needed it for. I cannot recommend it as a bit to drill holes in a tree stump. I cannot say whether it is suitable for other purposes.

Best auger out there, takes probably half the torque to drill deep holes compared to a conventional ship auger. After hitting about 20 nails they get a little dull, but are easily sharpened with a file. A m18 fuel drill will power one of these on an extension through two feet of wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious auger, requires power to use Just the dimensions on this thing are impressive. It's heavy, long and sturdy. It does a great job of drilling through material, as long as you have a drill that can handle the size of the shank and the power to drive it through the necessary material. I have used it in two different cordless drills. A 1/2" chuck is required, as that was barely large enough to fit the hex shank. My battery was near to dead in one of my drills, and the drill could not drive this auger. I grabbed a different drill with a fresh battery and it was able to do the job. It's a lot of metal to drilling through material and it takes some power to get it done. However, if you need the distance / length, this is a great tool for the job. I kept the packaging for it in order to store it. There is a hole in the top that hangs on my pegboard nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT WOOD BIT This bit was excellent for drilling through the railroad ties for my stairway project. I had also bought the spade (flat boring bits) that were 1/3 the price but they bent, broke off in the drill, got stuck and were hard to back out.
