Power Your Auger
The power is in your hands. It’s important to make sure you have the proper drill or power engine for your Power Planter Auger and your project. The right drill or power engine helps you get the best possible performance out of your auger – and ensures your planting or digging project is completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Please note: These are general recommendations. Power requirements may differ based on soil type and project specifications. These are only suggestions – we are not experts in soil composition.
Power Requirements by Diameter
Minimum power requirement for 7” length = 14V cordless drill.
For mass planting, use an electric drill with a side handle.
Longer length augers tend to benefit from higher voltage power drills.
I keep 12' wide nursery landscaping material down in my garden area (33'x48'). I haven't tilled the garden in two years, oh and no hoeing either! I was looking for something stronger than a bulb planter. This auger is awesome. I use a 7" long pvc pipe around the auger to cleanly drill my holes and lift the dirt out of the holes without making a mess. Then I put the old dirt in a bucket and fill the hole with potting soil for easy root growth. If your tomatoe cages are big enough for your drill you want even have to take them down either! The plants are jumping! Auger has Hex head and built strong!
