Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigAuger Just runs and runs and runs
I've had this auger for just over a year and have probably drilled 5,000+ holes with it, mostly planting shrubs and small trees. I've never had a single problem with it and it starts on the first or second pull every time. I've run it for 6 hours straight, switching operators to keep it running, and it doesn't break a sweat. I've run 2, 4, 6 and 8 inch augers on it. The 6 and 8 will make a man out of you, that's for sure, but there's plenty of power to run them. I wish it had reverse, but you'll spend 4 times this to get that feature. I'd buy another in a second if I needed one. I've used several of this type of auger and this is BY FAR the best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WHas Excellent Auger. one minor feature missing
I have owned Echo products and so did my dad for a long time. they are great products. This one is as well; the only feature that would have been good is a reverse gear so that if your digging deep holes and working alone, you can pull the engine out on your own. I would still pick Echo for the brand and quality, than get that feature in other brand augers.
Other than that, it is perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marskie Excellent product
Easy to start and use . We use it to make planting bulbs a snap. This is a great product and highly recommended even for non farming users
