      Answer This Question

      A:  The gear case has 4 oz. of grease installed at the factory. It is recommended that once a year the gear case be split and the grease level checked. Add grease only if level of grease is below top of the gears.

          A:  no it does not I am a woman and it got stuck several times with me but I was able to work with it to get it out.

          by|Apr 28, 2020

          A:  There is no reverse on these augers. If by chance it gets stuck in the ground, remove the powerhead and shimmy the auger bit back and forth until you are able to remove it.

          by|Jan 31, 2019

            A:  No, it does not.

            by|Jan 14, 2019

            A:  No on the reverse, it works well if you drill a little bit and pull it back out, drill a little bit and pull it back out

            by|Jan 14, 2019

              A:  No, Forward only, I have used it for around 100 holes using the 6" and 10" augers with out getting stuck. if it bogs down just pull up till it recovers

              by|Jan 16, 2019

                A:  No, this model does not have reverse.

                by|Jan 19, 2019

                  A:  Unfortunately no. I haven't had a problem with mine getting stuck. I've cut through roots and not gotten it stuck. I live in Georgia and it's that red clay type soil with rocks and roots. What type of soil do you have?

                      Works great after modification
                      Purchased on cheep that had been returned to the store knowiing most of the time the problem is a pretty simple fix. Soon discovered why it was returned. Would start right up and run fine for a couple of minutes, then would bog down and hAve no power. Rooted carb and cleaned it and still the same thing. Determined it was not a fuel issue. After a while I happened to try running without the gas cap and there it was. Breather in the cap was junk. Removed breather and drilled a very small hole in center of the cap and ran like a champ. Hole does not leak fuel due to the position of the cap when upright and just lay it down with cap facing up when not in use. Ran great for about 4 years until someone recently stole it. Simple fix on a cheaply purchased item. Won't get that lucky again but maybe this will help someone else having the same issue with theirs. For me, guess I'm digging posts the hard way for a while till I can afford to pay full price for one.

                        Awesome Machine
                        I am a contractor and build quite a few decks. The Earthquake is great for those hard to get to back yards. Does an amazing job with plenty of power. Small enough for one man to handle. I bought the extension so I could dig 3 feet.

                          This auger worked great making the holes that I needed. It is a very powerful 2 stroke engine for around the house projects or putting up fence poles.
