What is the recommended way to store the Auger over the winter or extended periods of non use? Will fuel stabilizer alone be good enough or do you have to run it dry? I don't want the carburetor getting clogged up.
Asked by: Joe
Empty the gas tank and turn it on until gas burn it out so is no gas in the carburator; this way will not gun the carburator.

Regardless of what others are saying in the questions and answers section. The manufacturer does not recommend an adaptor or have any other bits that fit. So if you want this to do anything other than drill 8" holes, you are out of luck.

Will have fence posts installed this weekend before December 1, 2018. Check YOUTUBE for Southland video explaing how to assemble and use safely.

Auger wouldn't turn for second use. Would have returned to home depot but I didn't use until after 30 day period (was waiting for fence supplies to arrive). Called company. Told take it to their repair shop. If they deem it manufacturing defect they will fix it. Otherwise out of pocket expense. How much you want to bet it somehow isn't covered. My fault for not buying top of the line. It was for a single job and I now have to dig holes by hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This auger does everything you need it to do. ... This auger does everything you need it to do. I would definitely recommend it for anyone needing to drill multiple fence post holes. One heads up - if you run into clay when digging, it is not your auger blade that is having issues. Clay is just tough to auger through when dry. Add about a 1/2 gallon of water to your hole, wait until the water disappears, and the auger will go right through it.
