Questions & Answers

How long is the 8" auger? In other words, how deep can it drill a hole?

Asked by: Rick
I drilled this hole down to 30". Last part of the video doesn't show me going all the way down but it's very close. You will be bumping up against the bottom of the motor and it will work your back.

Is this a one man auger?

Asked by: rookie
Yes, but if digging many holes, you might want some help. Definitely beats using post hole diggers.
Answered by: FarmerMan
Date published: 2017-06-19

is 8 inch or 10 inch better for 4 by 4 post

Asked by: flow
A 4 inch post requires a hole that is large enough for the post to fit in with some room for adjustment. If you are placing concrete in the hole, you will need an eight inch hole .

Can you use the Powermate Auger to bore under a 5' sidewalk?

Just purchased a Powermate Auger, 8" for fence post work. Now looking to bore under a 5' sidewalk. Can I buy a 3" auger? And run the engine horizontal to bore under the side walk?
Asked by: Mark
No, The power head is only designed to operate in the vertical position

43cc Earth Auger Powerhead with 8 in. Bit is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 198.

You do need to pull it out of the hole a few times to clear the dirt out, bu I knew that would need to be done. Ten times better than the manual post hole digger, I'm too old for that thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job well with some effort It took a few trys to learn how best to use it. Dug 20 holes and only problem was when hiting a large rock or root. A good pinch bar is needed then. Engine has lots of power and the 8" bit is perfect for setting 4x4's. others with 6" bits require you to be precise where you put the hole and limits the amount of cememt you can set it in. I got another 15 or more post to set but i expect no problem. Uses far less gas then i thought it would. 1 tank will do 35 or 40 post. Dont expect it to cut big roots and throw out big rocks. Pump it up and down in the hole and it does great. Starts on first or second pull every time. Can dig a 2 foot hole, if no rocks or roots, in about 2 mins. Its hard work but it beats any other way. Assembly was very quick. Out of the box and running in under 10 mins.

The fuel cap is very hard to turn tightly closed due to poor quality tank threads. Once tight it did not leak. The auger started easily, and had enough power to complete my holes. The occasional rock did stall the unit requiring two handle post digging to remove the obstruction. The stalls were not too aggressive and did not yank the handles from my hands. Overall, I am satisfied with the unit. Fixing the tank threads would earn a 5 star rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made short work of 6 post holes required for building... Made short work of 6 post holes required for building my green house. Our soil is extremely hard clay starting 6 inches down and that clay is impossible to dig into by shovel. With this auger we were able to dig out all of the holes within 15 minutes. MUCH EASIER TO WORK WITH TWO PEOPLE.

The problem I have with the auger, is that it is under powered. I can't imagine it being much use when summer time in Texas rolls around and the ground is hard. It was bad enough in early spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Brought this auger and went straight to the job site. It took a little bit to figure it out, but once I got it. Man it was great. 12 holes in no time. In red Georgia cray at that. It won't go through big tree roots, but what one man auger will.
