    This is my first post hole auger. I love that it took about 45 seconds to assemble. The auger is very easy to use. If you can start a weed whacked you can use this. As for quality only time will tell. For the price who freaking cares how long it lasts. It is the same cost to rent one to do a whole fence. I have dug about a dozen holes so far with zero issues. I recommend this so far!

    Would not recommend. Read other reviews how this was easy to start but wouldn’t start out of the box. Used fresh, high quality gas but would not stay running. Product was delivered the night before my fence project and didn’t get a chance to run it until the morning of. Lost about 1.5 hours of work because I had to drop everything, go back to Home Depot to rent an auger for the day. Returning this ASAP to re coup some money wasted on renting. Wasn’t impressed with the size at all. If you not digging in sandy, loose soil, you probably won’t have much luck.

      Great machine for getting holes dug in rapid time. Put down a 300ft fence with 8ft posts in one weekend thanks to this machine. Depending on your dirts hardness, it only takes 10-15 seconds to dig a 3ft hole for fence posts.

      Does a great job for me. I'm putting in a 4x4" post fence and need to put 60+ posts 24" deep. Since I own this auger, I don't have to try and get every post hole dug in a one day rental period. I think that also helps the auger since I dig a hole for a few minutes, turn it off, and set the post. This is my first fence so I'm pretty slow about setting posts. Therefore, the auger is only getting used for 1-3 minutes at a time and then has 30 minutes at least to cool off. If I tried to dig 60 posts all at once, I don't know how it would hold up. However, with how I am working it, I haven't had a bit of problems and I've been fairly impressed at it's performance. I'm digging through some pretty rough top soil covering red clay and this tears it up pretty quick. If there are no roots, it'll dig you a 30" deep hole in 30 seconds. Small roots aren't much trouble. I've gone through roots about an inch in diameter or so. Bigger roots, you'll have to stop and get a spade or something to cut it out. But, for what I paid, and the job it's doing, I'd say it's a great deal!

      can’t replace auger bit
      The auger itself is great, however the blades did not last long at all. So i contacted the company about seeing about purchasing/ warranty another bit, i was informed they don’t replace auger bits or blades. So i asked what’s the shaft diamenter i was told 7/8. I buy another bit just to find out that you cant swap them out. Im out if the return window by a few days im Hopeing i can still return this.

        The tip of the auger bit blade broke off the second we touch the dirt.

          Had it delivered to my local Home Depot. When I opened box and read instructions! Was easy to setup and start. had no issues the machine when digging into the ground except when running into a clay bed, worked through slowly and didn't skip a beat. I've read reviews prior to purchase of auger. but this machine met my expectations and more. Just operate the auger properly and it will perform. We put in 26 post 3ft. deep and my son still wanted to make more holes with it but It was enough for now.

          This auger was easy to use and started up straight out of the box. It drills pretty well in sandy clay. The cutters on the bit work pretty well as I had to go through a few roots up to about 1" diameter. Well worth the money compared to beating it out with hand tools!

          Excellent tool, right what I needed. I drilled four holes so far in clay soil, there is enough power to do the job, and the tool stays controllable at all times, even when hitting unexpected roots or rocks. Simple assembly, clear instructions, easy start. Very happy with purchase.
