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.

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.

The engine started easily but when applying throttle the bit wouldn't turn and engine stalled. This condition is actually listed in the troubleshooting section of the manual. I contacted the support number in the manual. First attempt was outside the specified hours in a different time zone, second time I got through after a short wait. I explained what happened to the agent who hehawed some then indicated that there's likely something not engaging in the gear box. I would have to take it to a service center for repair. This product is sold by Home Depot online only and my project awaited so I returned it at local store no problem. Home Depot stocks the Powermate which is the exact same auger as this with a yellow paint job. Instead I went to Lowe's bought the Y43Z. I found the website of the China manufacturer. Sold in bulk and dressed in any handle variation with reseller branding for about $150.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great around the hobby farm This is such an easy way to dig holes for a porch, or get started on deeper holders for a fence. We are extending our welded pipe fence a few acres, and this is so much easier than getting started by hand. Although we need to go 4' deep with our holes, and this partial auger only gets us about 3'. But the 8" bit it comes with is plenty wide enough for our 3" pipe while leaving enough room for a tamping bar around the sides. This is a huge time saver in digging hundreds of holes. Like the see-through gas tank, very simple to see when you are running low. It starts within 5 pulls every time so far, so we haven't had to be frustrated trying to get it to start. A bigger guy can run this by himself, or you can put one person on each handle. If it binds up and you are a smaller person trying to handle it by yourself, it could really jerk you around so use caution. Lots of power, we had an easy time digging in our Colorado ground. Overall a great tool to have for projects around our hobby farm. Probably wouldn't invest in one if we were just building a single deck, but absolutely worth it for a whole fenceline.
