CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by earth orger You ask for my opinion then you ask for a complete book about my experience. i do not have the time to do all of this. Except what you get. Peter May 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT customer service It's not common these days to call the manufacturer of your product and get good customer service, so I wanted to take the time to write this review in thanks. My auger was leaning on a tree while not in use, slid off, fell, and the fuel-filter nipple broke off. In dire-straights, I called the customer service line and to my surprise was speaking with a very nice native-english speaking guy. Within two minutes he identified the part I need and had it in shipment to me. No horrid phone-tree, no calls to India, no $50 parts, just great customer service. It's still out there, people. June 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bought my 43 in 2013 Bought my Earth Auger 43 in 2013 and used it with a 8 inch jiffy ice auger blade..burns through 15 " of ice in about 5 seconds. Always starts in the 1st pull. Awesome too. Can't wait to try it for post holes this summer. December 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product. Easy to set up and use. The power head was easy to set on the auger and started quickly. I bought the 8 inch auger, but probably could have gone with a smaller one. The hole made by the 8 inch auger is huge. Only difficulties I had were rocks and clearing the dirt from the hole. I had to clear rocks with a pike and the dirt at the bottom with a manual post hole digger. The power head has a lot of torque and speed for the auger, but when it hits a rock (4 inch or larger), it stops turning. Had to back out, pull the rock and then start again. Definitely better than digging manually, though. October 24, 2013
