Questions & Answers

Does this have reverse on it

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Tim
No. To lessen the chance of it hooking under a large root or soft (like sandstone) rock, let it down slowly as you dig so it can cut or chip off as it goes.

Asked by: BOSTAK
Hi, the largest extension that we have is 18" and the part number is ext18, we don't make longer extensions for this as the product isn't designed with the intention of going that deep.

This looks like a 7/8" round shaft. Is there a 12" auger bit with the 7/8" round opening? I can only find a 7/8" square 12" bit. Or is there a 7/8" round to 7/8" square adapter available?
Asked by: MK
Yes, Artasam has 12" and 14" augers. I don't know if Thunder Bay sells a 12" or not. Both seem to be made at the same place in China.

Will this handle a 16 " bit to 42" down

Asked by: paul
That's a pretty big order for any auger this size. I don't think they make 16" augers for this machine. I would recommend renting a professional quality machine and auger, or hiring someone.

6.5 Torque 190cc Briggs & Stratton Engine 2-Man Auger Powerhead is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I tried a competitors brand before I bought this one. I am extremely pleased with the design of the auger and power of the Briggs engine. The Auger starts easily on the first or 2nd pull. The throttle on it ramps up and down for easier handling of the digging. Be careful you will drive this auger pretty deep and have a difficult time pulling it up. Over all I am extremely pleased with the quality and ease of use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Carb set for elevation This is a good product and the price is great. Renting one of these at a equipment rental is about a fifth of the price of buying it. I did have a couple of minor issues with the fuel system. First thing I recommend is spray out the whole system with carb cleaner. The engine is manufactured in Wisconsin so there's going the be some condensation in the system and sitting in a warehouse until it ships out means that there a chance for gunk to start humming up the carb. Also there is no information on adjusting the carb for elevation. I live at 7500 feet so it didn't start right out of the box. The engine manufacturer's nearest certified repair shop is over 100 miles away. There set screw is a Phillips head and there is a hole in the sheet metal above and to the left of the On/Off switch that will allow you to get to this. I recommend setting the choke to half choke and giving the cord 3 or 4 tugs to start it. If it doesnt turn over turn the adjustment screw clockwise afull turn and repeat the process. Once it's started and warmed up turn off the choke and do the final adjustment on the carb.

Two weeks later, also started, dug one hole, turned off, moved to next hold, wouldn't start. Tried over next few days, no luck. Took to Briggs and Stratton authorized repair. Waiting for their diagnosis. Would recommend you get the Honda engine if you can afford it. By the way, the one hole it did do was very easy. Just engine problems.
