6.5 Torque 190cc Briggs & Stratton Engine 2-Man Auger Powerhead is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 14.
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.

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.

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 4 out of 5 by from work horse, until rocks after reading other reviews we knew this might not be our saving grace hole digger. In the mountains of WV the soil is very rocky, which is why we were looking for something more than our post hole digger. Worked great but threw us around a bit (I am 5'10", husband is 6'4") but got the hang of it pretty quick. After fighting through 10 holes, #11 finally bent the bolt on the drill piece. We'll replace that and keep using her! Still better than a shovel but wish it was just a bit more sturdy..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Auger power head seemed to work fine but auger bit broke on first hole. The power head was adequate but the auger broke the spring on the first hole and only halfway down. And when trying to get the machine out of the hole the auger shaft broke. Very dissatisfied with the product and want a full refund of the purchase and would like to get instructions on how to return the merchandise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest tool ever This tool is amazing. I have dug a lot of holes manually in typical rocky California hard clay and it has been back breaking work; busting rocks with a pike to get down even a couple feet. This drill never needed more than 2 pulls to start and went down like butter. Even with the 2 foot extension, which buried the entirely auger out of site, it performed well. In less than 1 minutes I can dig the hole and vacuumed the dirt out. It brought up rocks the size of my fist. All soil drills leave the loose dirt in the hole. Rotary well drillers wash it up using water or air. Cable rigs use a bailer. For shallow 6-foot deep holes I use a large shop vac to suck the dirt out. Another reviewer suggested the auger needs "teeth" instead of blades to make it more usable for a "contractor." Even well drilling rigs do not have blades with "teeth" like a saw so he is not suggesting anything that really exists. To go though solid rock you need a bit with diamond numbs and extreme pressure to crush the rock or you need a cable rig. Even small rock drill bits for a hand drill have carbine blades but no "teeth." Sounds like this "contractor" knows little about drilling. The unit came with case hardened bolts which do not bend. Sounds like another reviewer used a regular hex bolt which was too soft for this purpose. I can't think of a single feature that could make this tool better.
