This product was exactly what I wanted and needed for placing fence posts! It was powerful enough but you have to be careful when hitting rocks or roots as the torque can catch you.
When I first went to use the auger, the nuts holding on one of the handles were loose. If it hadn't been so loose that the handle actually wobbled, I probably would not have noticed and would have lost the nuts while drilling. Tightened them up and checked for more loose pieces. The vent on the gearbox was half unscrewed as well as a couple of the bolts only finger tight. Finished tightening. After reading the manual it states to use gear oil in the gear box. However, there is only grease fittings on the gearbox. I pulled the zerk fittings and there was blue grease in the holes, so I assumed the gearbox was full of blue grease. Drilled a dozen holes and it did very well. The next day I decided to make sure the gearbox was topped off with grease. It took more than half a tube before it started coming out of the seam where the gearbox housing is bolted together. Must be a poor fit. In any case, check your gearbox before it blows up on you! And if it really is supposed to take gear oil, the only way to get it in is with a syringe. In my case, it would just run out the seam anyway, so grease it is. I've now drilled well over 800 holes to plant tea seedlings. These holes are only about 10 inches deep, but the auger has worked very well so far.
Plenty of power. Not a one person machine in rocky. Works like a charm in rock free ground
Did exactly what I expected and did a good job.
works a lot better then the one that I rented for a week, and the cost is less then the rental. Glad that I purchased it.
