Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not what i expected disappoint in the power of the motor. Could hardly dig the dirt ended up using a post hole digger because it worked better July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Powerful Root-eater I purchased a cabin on 10 acres in the Missouri Ozarks. I have 4 small dogs that needed a fenced yard so rather than renting I decided to purchase so I will always have this. The soil here is rocky and and where I was putting the fence there were some trees so I knew I would hit roots. This started up on the second pull out of the box. The power for a one-man auger was almost too much. Several times when I hit a root rather than having it stall it had so much power that it could rip out of your hands if you did not have a good hold. That is exactly what I wanted. I drilled 20 post holes in rocky and rooted soil in about an hour. I am more than pleased with this and am sure it will be used again and again. June 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really good equipment. Easy to assemble. Practically was 99% assembled. Minimum work to complete. After read the manual, just the most important things. Fill gas, pull the cord, and run. Silent and smooth. After two or three holes I got experience how to handle it. I did by myself the first 10 or 12. After that, I needed some help. Good exercise for my arms. June 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dig, Dig, Dig!!! This purchase was required because no one wants a small job of putting in 10 -12 fences posts in my area. Unless you are going to put in posts in simple garden soil using this auger or probably any auger will be much easier with two people. Using the recommended bit this unit bites in after the break-in period about 1 hour of use for me. Because of the stones you will probably encounter you have to be able to pull it up and clear out any accumulated earth and stones larger than 2". Be prepared to dig out larger stones with a small garden shovel and breaker bar. Don't plan on using a single bit for holes larger than 6". Use the 6:" first then a larger bit as the unit will bog down if you try to start with a larger bit in a stony/rocky location. The best advice I can offer is to know the composition of what you will be digging into and watch out for old pieces of wire that were buried with fill. I encountered old blasting wire in some of the areas where fill had been dumped. The unit itself started right up following the instructions and subsequently has started each time without fail. I don';t believe you can do better for the price! May 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the price I began replacing fence posts and needed an auger. I wasn't sure based on price if this was a solution for my project but it has turned out to be really good. I like the easy start cold or restart, pleasant surprise. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Earthquake Auger I'm a sign shop owner, and this is my second one. First one lasted 10 years, worked hard and put up wet every time. These earthquakes are perfect for small jobs. Keep clean gas in them and they will run forever. April 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by earthquake auger I am replacing an older model. Plan to get service as well as the old one. December 29, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lacks power Goal was: dig 12" deep holes for 120 tree (saplings). Used 4" auger. Powered through topsoil however once auger reached clay the auger stops turning. After 10 holes ( about 90 minutes work) I put auger down and ran to tractor supply to purchase a 3 point auger for my 41 HP tractor. The 3 point auger was the right tool for job. If I may speculate... I cannot imagine the Earthquake powerhead powering a 6 inch auger. The 4 inch was okay if you are working with topsoil. Even in topsoil, it does a poor job of clearing the soil from hole. The 4 inch auger bit was built well. The power head looks like good construction but some issues starting. Once engine running, it continued to run well, just under-powered. December 10, 2014
