Customer 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.

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.

I am so please to have chosen this product and that I purchased it through your company. I have made over 200 holes thus far and I now know it be perform for another 500 holes which I will be doing next month planting tress and putting in fence posts.. I almost ordered though another company but going through you I saved over 100 dollars!. Need I say any more?? Thank You

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Used it for about 25 holes, transmission is broken, output shaft loose in bearing, and is probably snapped off inside the case, auger no longer turns started off making grinding sounds then stopped working all together.
Date published: 2017-04-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Easy to assemble. Works as advertised. Shipped as advertised. Just a little on the heavy side, but knew that because it is a 4 cycle engine. After 25 holes, we bent the knife blade on the 4" auger and Earthquake replaced the auger promptly. We drilled 45 holes in clay and rock and it did just fine. Some of the rockier holes we had to use the spud bar to finish drilling the hole. One of the easiest starting engines I have. Would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Earthquake auget Drilled 4 holes. Then died and wouldn't restart. Had to give it back.
Date published: 2016-07-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Helps but... I have yet to call the mfg to find out, but it feels like it runs at less than full throttle. If it is running at full throttle, it is a bit weak. In bone dry dirt it eventually cuts a hole, but the dirt remains in it, requiring manual removal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good! Worth the investment! I have always had good luck and have been satisfied w/ Briggs & Stratton engines. This auger was no different. Easily assembled (only had to bolt on handles) I added the motor oil (which was provided in the package) and some premium gas. It fired up and ran within 3 pulls. It is reatively quiet in comparison to other small engines. I used the auger over the past weekend to set 6 fence posts in the AZ dirt and it worked great. This was not the hard clay although the dirt was still tough and rocky. It did not even use a full tank of gas. It appears that buying this was worth the investment and I don't have to mess around w/ the rental thing. So far everything has been good and I anticipate it will stay that way. These small engines have a solid history of reliabilty and my in-laws are already looking to get some use out of it as well. Go figure, Ha! Home Depot had the best price on this model of auger (internet and store) to include shipping (free). Great deal all around!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit weak. If you are digging in anything other than sand or top soil good luck...bogs down when it hits clay or chunk rock.
