About This Product

With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the 18V LXT Brushless Cordless Earth Auger (XGD01Z, tool only) is a welcome solution for landscapers. The earth auger provides high-performance digging with even and consistent holes. It is ideal for post-hole digging, fence installation, large planting jobs, soil sampling, and construction projects. The Makita-built brushless motor delivers power equivalent to a 36cc gas earth auger. The XGD01Z can drill holes up to 8 in. W and 41 in. D. The extension bar, auger bit and blades are sold separately. There are 2 speed options (0-350 RPM, 0-1,400 RPM) to manage power and run time. A reverse switch clears the earth auger bit from high-resistance soil. Other features include built-in L.E.D. light illuminates the work area, Automatic Speed Change to adjust drill speed and torque during drilling, and a torque limiter, which is a built-in clutch that reduces gear damage by disengaging gears if the bit binds.

The Brushless Motor delivers the power of a 36cc gas earth auger and provides 2 speed options (Low: 0-350 RPM, High: 0-1,400 RPM) for power and run-time management but unfortunately, there are no published specs regarding the torque of this tool.

          Wish I had this 40 years ago. Safe to use.
          I own a large Honda (about $5000.00 new) post hole auger, but the Makita gets used the most. If I need a hole bigger than 8 inches (like 17 inches), I just drill three holes with the Makita all next to each other. The Makita is almost maintenance free.
