Small tool for big diggin
Not really up for the task of mass drilling but good enough to get where real machinery cant. One thing, They want you to brace this tool with hands outer and inner thigh. After a couple minutes of use the machine caught a root and smacked me hard in the balls. I crumpled to the ground.
