    I was worried that a battery powered auger would not work very well. Big Suprise. It is working very well and can do more holes than I have needed so far. I can handle this on my own.

    I bought this when I was going to put in a short length of fence using 4 by 4s as posts. It worked well and efficiently. I have had it for over 2 years and have found so many other uses for it. I’ve put in a lot more fencing and I found that it was perfect for planting trees. In the garden, where my soil is clay and gravel, it makes holes that I can fill in with compost and garden soil to make my vegetables grow much better. Very impressive machine and in spite of abusing it (in the gravel) I haven’t even had to replace the 6 inch bit yet. Highly recommended for homesteaders and gardeners or anyone putting in fencing.

    First use, I used it to dig 10 holes at 2′ deep each, and we have very rocky soil. It makes it through most of them and just throws them out, but once in awhile it will catch a rock stuck in the side of the hole and I have to pull it out to dig out the big rock and continue, but otherwise it was very quick and powerful, and the battery was still at full charge after those 10 holes, impressive. Well built, sturdy, looks good, holds a charge forever, and in good soil bores a deep hole in seconds.

    Lightweight but very sturdy and quite powerful, with reversing gear button. I dug five deep holes in mildly rocky ground and had half a battery charge left over. We have a 6″ auger. I’m glad we bought it.

    Love the auger but I need to replace the charger that came with it. Unfortunately, I lost the charger and do not know the model number for the Landworks charger. Hope someone can help!!

    Everything works as it should on this machine. Only suggestion I would have is to include the correct wrench to put it together. We had to go out and buy an allen wrench for this.

    L’ ho comprato per mettere dei pali sul confine del mio terreno in campagna e devo dire che lavora benissimo. Anche la batteria ha una buona durata. A volte la trivella s’ inceppa per fare il movimento inverso ma pu darsi sia dovuto solo alla mia scarsa abilit con queste attrezzature.

    El taladro me llego rpido y sin dao. Vino armado as que solo tuve que usarla. Me ha servido para poner las estacas de las cercas, y para abrir huecos para sembrar. La batera hasta ahora me dura bastante. Lo recomiendo .

    SO glad I purchased this machine in 2019. I don’t think there were any reviews on it or not many when I did. I use it for gardening and post hole digging. If you hit a rock then you just dig it out and keep getting it lol. It has saved me a lot of labor.

    This auger works great! I bought it with the six and eight inch augers and also an extension. Just charge the battery and get to it. Has good torque and the bits have a fairly tight spiral which I think helps with dirt removal. The best part though is that there is no messing with gas, no fumes while running and no NOISE! I could dig about eight holes about two feet deep before having to recharge and it will recharge in about an hour.

    Right tool for the right job.Should have gotten one sooner.I got it for a job that has 14 4×4 post.I tried it out at my house.My soil is hard enough to bend shovels and in order to use a post hole digger you have to use a 6′ wrecking bar to bust it up before using the post hole digger (takes about 30minutes per hole).This works surprisingly well, probably under 30 seconds a hole. I olny do 30-40 post a year so we’ll see how it holds up.

    Digs out a two foot deep hole in seconds. Excellent tool, and highly recommend it. I put up a post and rail fence. Could not have managed it without this auger. Very safe being battery operated

    Surprisingly powerful for such a “little” battery… makes the whole job so much simpler. The auger is not too heavy and is straight-forward to use, so don’t be scared.
    This tool seems pretty expensive, but as soon as I started using it I realized that the job of putting up the new fence would be SO much easier thanks to the auger that the whole “intimidation factor” just dropped away. I’m just using the battery that came with it and it works fine for me in Minnesota soil; excessively rocky soil will use up more battery power, but still this thing works well and I’ve used it also in rocky and in rooty areas, both. Would also be good for digging holes to plant trees and shrubs, and apparently can be used even as an ice auger for ice fishing… btw, I was worried that 8″ auger would be too big for fence poles but actually it’s just right.

    We have been using this auger at the Botanical Garden for digging holes and turning our community compost piles. It is realiable and well made. Easy to use and light enough for the women to use efficiently. Using the auger saves time and eliminates the physical strain of digging holes. We are always planting, couldn’t live without this auger. An environmental soluction! We use battery operated tools only, no gasoline in this sustainable garden!

    The Landworks Electric Auger works as described. It is nice not to have to mess with noisy gas operated machines to dig post holes. I have sandy soil at the farm and it works fast and effectively in digging holes. I recommend it….and so far it has operated as described.

    It is the perfect balance between power and strength. If it gets suck it doesn’t rip your arms off, so you can simply put it in reverse to free it. If you want to dig a hike for a post make sure to move the soil do as to not get itself all clogged up. Don’t just use it for posts though, tree and shrub planting is made much easier. You soon get used to the weight and the fact that it is battery driven is a huge plus

    Love it, used it to plant lilac bushes. Hit a few stones but kept right in going. Though we didn’t need it today, I think the reversible feature is excellent in case we hit a big tree root. Living on a farm we have several fence posts to replace and this will be great.

    This is an awesome gadget to have. We used it to dig wholes to install a fence. Worked great and broke through the dirt and smaller stones and roots. Battery lasted a long time. We also used it to put in our 2021 vegetable garden.

    This thing is great. Originally I was using it to do a couple holes for posts to build a raised bed. After I did that project I thought it might be useful to do several holes nearby to plant a tree. It works for that as well. Most recently I needed to on earth a concrete entombed yard sign and thought I would give it a shot. This tool was critical in me unearthing 4 and 1/2 feet of buried cement. I can’t believe how well this thing works. I would highly recommend this tool. The only word of caution is that if you hit something solid it will jerk on you so you must stabilize it as you’re holding it.

    I was cautiously Optimistic when I bought this product and a bigger auger to go on it. After using it for a couple of days, I’m impressed. I really didn’t want another small engine to take care of. I will only use this on occasion once we do the fencing project, but I’ve already found it very useful for drilling holes during plantings. Well, it works as advertised and it works well. Plenty of controllable power and if you hit a big rock or root, it sounds an alarm and stops so you can deal with it before getting your wrists torqued or damaging the unit. I also bought the bigger 4ah battery for when I’m using it more often.

    The packaging was EXCELLENT. Plenty of padding and extra support to protect the product- and fully recyclable. Instructions were easy and after topping off the charge on the 2ah battery provided, it was off and running. I also like that you securely bolt the auger onto the shaft. It was solid and I know I will be using this a lot more than I originally thought I would because you can really tear up and break up a lot of different soils, for other reasons besides digging post holes. It also looks like you can get an ice auger for it to use ice fishing. Very Pleased with the purchase!

    I bought it to do some fencing and a retaining wall. Overall, it’s awesome. A great time and energy saver. On good soil, it augers right down in a matter of seconds. If you hit some big rock, you will have to get that out to continue, but it will pull golf ball size stuff out. Battery life is OK. If you are straining it it will be shorter.
    Love the reverse feature, and the soft-start. It has already been worth the price of admission.

    This 6″ auger will drill a 30″ hole fast an easily. Dig dozens of holes on a charge. Relatively lightweight (my 115 pound wife can handle it easily. I expect to use this unit for many years to come. Incredibly superior to gasoline engine augers and veery reasonable price. Highly recommended.

    This auger worked relatively well for our project. It was definitely faster than digging by hand but still not as powerful as we expected in clay soil. Overall it still sped up the job so we were pleased.

    This is an outstanding post hole digger. I dug a 36 inch hole in a minute. Effortless. Battery is outstanding. Holds a charge. Smart charge lights are great. Really as powerful as gas model with zero vibration. Company needs to put the spare batteries and bits on Amazon. Otherwise spares are hard to find. Overall I love it. Don’t fool your self, 48volt battery is powerful. Lots of torque!

    Golden Review Award: 10 From Our UsersThough I had my doubts about this product, after drilling several holes (24-30 inches deep) in our mountainside yard, I am completely amazed with it. Our ground is mostly a mixture of dirt with limestone, chert, shale, and granite rocks and pebbles. My first series of holes were for heavy-walled metal posts (3-inch chain link corner posts) for use with pole-mounted solar panels. Prior to getting this electric auger, I had dug the first hole by hand (post-hole digger tool). The outside temperature was 90-95 degrees F and the digging took nearly 45 minutes. I was soaked with sweat and just about worn out. As I had many more holes to dig, I started looking at gas-powered augers but having rented them before, they can be more than difficult to use and are often heavy.

    When I bumped into this electric auger on Amazon, read the reviews, and watched some YouTube videos of it in action, I began to warm up to the idea of an electric-powered auger. I ordered it. It was delivered very quickly. I dug the second hole about six feet from the previous hole. It took about two minutes to dig a 24-inch deep hole with the 6-inch wide auger. Two minutes!! I didn’t even break a sweat even though the temperature was still in the 90s. The auger bit hit a few palm-sized rocks but ejected them without any issue. I was impressed! The rest of the holes went just as easy as that.

    I also used the electric auger to drill a hole in our wooded backyard to install a 10-foot tall metal post to mount a Ubiquiti LiteBeam Antenna to stream video from a webcam (used to watch our honeybees) located in our apiary. This was a long-overdue project simply because it involved digging a deep hole (30-inches) which is hard to do with manual post-hole diggers. In this case, I caught the edge of a large tree root…much too big to cut without killing the tree. Ordinarily, I might have just stopped and not done the job but I said “well, I’ll just dig another hole”. That’s not something I would have so lightly said before having this electric auger. I moved the auger about a foot from the previous effort and dug a second hole in about three minutes. Done!

    I also have used this auger to dig a series of small holes about 6-inches deep to lay a small diameter conduit underground. Just drill a series of holes in a straight line, scoop out the dirt with a narrow shovel, and voila…a trench! Each hole took less than 15-30 seconds. On a sad note, our 16+-year old cat, Molly, passed away last week, and we used the electric auger to dig a grave for her…six holes align as a “six-pack” layout, and the grave was ready. Preparing a final resting place for our pets over the years has always been hard work but the electric auger made the task easier at a time when you don’t need more stress.

    My wife quickly thought of using it for planting trees, bushes, and flowers…never been easier for her or me! The plants do better with a deeper hole (better moisture retention and easy for root growth with new plants). Around here, you have to BYOD (Bring Your Own Dirt) when you plant something. You dig a shallow hole, insert plant, then dump bags of dirt around it because digging is so challenging. Even with such efforts, plants often do not do well because they can quickly dry out if not water often. Not any more!

    It should also be noted that digging a hole with this auger results in having to use less concrete than if manually dug. The auger-drilled hole is more uniform in size and doesn’t result in a tapered, almost cone-shaped hole as happens with manual post-hole diggers. With manual diggers, the top of the hole has to be wider to allow for the motion of the digger handles when extracting dirt from the hole so more concrete is required because the hole gets bigger. With the electric auger, I only have to use the manual diggers to clean out the hole a bit and it’s done. The electric auger does a good job on its own of cleaning out the hole. Just insert it into the finished hole a few times and pull it back up, the loose dirt comes right out.

    This electric auger will absolutely change the way you do projects involving holes and moving dirt out of the way. Just hold it steady and firmly, and let it do the work. Don’t force it down into the ground…it will do that for you. This is a wonderful investment for your back, your health, your projects, and your time. I couldn’t be happy with this auger.

    An Absolute Game-Changer for Projects Requiring a Holes in The Ground

    It works! Was hesitant because electric but it digs through loose soil with ease. Clay soil takes longer but with combination manual hole digger and auger it worked well. Battery life good and charging fast. Glad I purchased!

    Golden Review Award: 7 From Our Userseasy, quiet, convenient even for a 64yr old woman, would give it a 5 if it came with a longer lasting battery, or two batteries so one could be charging. I get 5-6 holes from a charge. Takes quite a while to charge. Other than that very pleased that it allows me to work on my new fence at my own pace.

    A great digger and back saver.. dug through rocky and root filled terrain with little issue.. sometimes it would get caught up on a tough root, and stall, to be expected, but would power through on retry.. nice having reverse too.. was amazed that the transmission held up on the device as it really took a beating in this terrain.. the only down side with it was given the stress it went through digging one hole, it would only dig three holes per charge at 3 foot depths in the tough terrain.. but all in all a great buy and life saver as digging with a post hole digger would have taken a week and kill the back..

    UPDATE 7-15-2020: We planted an additional 42 trees and used the auger to dig the holes. Everything I said in my original review still stands. Even digging in our rocky soil, the auger blade is in great condition (not chipped or broken at all), and it continued to do a fantastic job.
    ORIGINAL REVIEW: We live in Colorado where the soil is just naturally full of rocks. We were fencing in a section of our yard, and I wanted to plant a bunch of shrubs without having to hire the hole digging out. I was skeptical how well this auger would work, but it was the only one I found with a larger size bit, battery powered, and that had decent reviews. The auger arrived before my plants did, so my husband used it to dig the 9 fence post holes that he needed, and it took him about a minute per hole. And yesterday, I planted 35 shrubs and one small tree using the auger. Depending on how deep I needed the hole to be, I would need to stop a time or two to pull out the rocks that had been loosened, and then dig some more. But the strength of the auger, weight, and ease of use surpassed my expectations. I’m a 55 year old woman, and in good health, but i don’t have an over-abundance of upper body strength, and I did not have any trouble operating the auger. It has more than paid for itself with the use we’ve given it so far, and is still in great condition. In spite of all the softball sized rocks it loosened up, the auger isn’t chipped or damaged in any way. And after digging the 36 plant holes in one day, it still had battery charge left. I am extremely pleased with this purchase and highly recommend this auger.

    Cuts though soil like a hot knife though butter. As it gets stuck on its way down, you can either muscle it in, or back it out a bit (hold both safeties) and run it forward in short bursts. Still had half battery left after drilling 20 holes, almost the whole length of the drill.
    Unit controls are simple – the trigger fires the unit. The trigger only works if you are pressing the safety button near the trigger. The is another safety button on the other handle – holding both safeties causes the unit to run backwards.

    I am amazed at how powerful this auger is! It s easily as good as the petrol one that I had previously but much lighter and easier to handle. The battery also lasts for ages. The only negative it the very high price, however it never needs petrol and has very few moving parts, so should be almost maintenance free. I highly recommend this item.

    Very powerful. Its quite heavy and and kicks if it gets caught on a rock so extreme caution should be exercised by lighter users. It digs through soil and clay easily but the developers had dumped building rubble into thick clay on my property which made digging very difficult. Solidly built and the fact it is cordless makes it hassle free.

    Great item! What a back-saver. Already used for post holes, digging out and transplanting a tree and planting roses. I have heavy clay soil with a lot of rocks- it will twist and disengage when a major obstacle is hit. Just clear things and keep going. The battery is long lasting. Highly recommended.
