40V HP Brushless 8" Auger with 4.0 Ah Battery and Charger
40V HP BRUSHLESS 8" EARTH AUGER KIT is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 426.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get rid of your Gas Auger! Bought this for a fence project and was pleasantly surprised with its performance! I have used gas units in the past, and this auger is hands down the better choice- dug my entire project in a day on one 6AH battery. Anti-kick feature works great, saves your body from the beating that you would get from a gas unit. And quiet enough to work early mornings when trying to beat the heat too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I have a fencing business.. I've owned Hydraulic augers, gas power 2 man augers... this is hands down the best auger out there. I can drill 12 post at 24 inches on 6 amp hour 40 volt battery no problem.. do yourself a favor and buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great!! I bought this tool to dig fence post holes in hopes that it would do the job after the Home Depot rentals (both manual two-person auger and hydraulic auger) weren't. I knew I was taking a chance but I am so glad that I did - it works so well! I needed 10" holes so I bought the separate 10" bit as well. It actually digs through the clay soil that the others couldn't. I still have to manually remove tree roots but that seems to be pretty typical with any tool. If you're on the fence, definitely get it!! I am excited to use this to dig holes for shrubs and plants as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just keeps on digging! I think we have set at least 50 wood posts with this thing. the auto cutoff is an arm and back saver. I've never even drained the battery all the way by the end of a day with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is unstoppable I purchased this item from Home Depot this week. I need to drill some holes in the ground for some irritation work I'm doing. It was easy to setup and to use. it's really powerful and I had no problem going through the soil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best portable auger in Alaska without a tractor I’m glad to finally have a good auger that’s affordable here in alaska. I’ve tried others, gas, corded, never thought a battery powered would eat through. But she did!
