Customer Questions & Answers

What is the weight? How hard is this to handle.

I'm a rather small woman who wants to build a fence. According to the description this machine weighs 39.7 pounds. That's great. But according to the description in holds 32 gallons of gasoline!! There is no way I could lift that much weight. Is the 32 gallon tank a misprint?
Asked by: 1smallwoman
32 is a misprint. It doesn't even hold a half gallon. Easy to use and light in comparison to others i have used.

How deep a hole will this dig?

Asked by: spankman
We were able to get 32" by going all the way down to the bottom of the handles and then using post diggers to clean out excess dirt.

Sure, the auger doesn't really have the power to easily cut through hard soil. It doesn't seem to pull the soil to the surface as nicely as commercial models either, so I found myself having to hand dig a little to clear the hole. Yes, it did bog down during the process of digging, while cutting through clay soil, but it was a WHOLE LOT EASIER than digging it by hand with a post hole digger!! You can also buy different size auger bits for various jobs, so I've used this for digging holes for trees and even for starting square trenches. For the cost, it's not a bad machine. It starts up fairly easily and the weight is reasonable and managable for a single person. Overall, if you are going to be using this for commercial application or plan to do a lot of fences or tree holes, buy a commercial model. But if you are a homeowner just looking to make the occasional job around the yard a little easier, this machine will do the job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average Not quite enough power to drill fence post holes complete.Keeps bogging down even in soft soil. Will start hole but you will have to dig with the old 2 hand diggers to reach a 3 foot depth.
