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 379.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Digs great even in clay The auger drills through hard clay almost as easily as dirt. Has a nice kickback feature if you hit a root and stops itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I bought these Earth Auger a couple of months ago and it performed excellent. I use these auger for installation of post for a fence. My only concern is that in Puerto Rico we don't get al Ryobi products that are available. I wait for more than 6 months for this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good auger, poor packaging and customer service Went to assemble auger and there were two left handles, no right handle which has the controls on it. The nearest Home Depot is a long drive to exchange mine for one that was packaged properly. When I first turned the unit on there was a grinding noise coming from the motor which seemed to go away after a minute or so. I drilled around 100 holes and was very pleased with the operation and ease of use. Will never consider a gas powered auger in the future. I could drill 25 holes in clay soil 24" deep on a fully charged battery. Because Ryobi sends a crappy charger with the auger it took 2+ hours to charge the battery. They force you to register the unit in order to get a charger that actually works so they can send you unwanted marketing spam. I purchased another Ryobi 40v item at the same time and it was missing a piece. When I called Ryobi customer service they sent the missing piece, but seemed unapologetic for my troubles. I'm not happy it took an entire afternoon to correct manufacturing/packaging issues on products I spent $1,000 to purchase. Maybe my expectations are too high?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well. Does everything I wanted it to. It tackles dirt and small rocks like a breeze. Roots not so much but moving a few inches fixes that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and Easy to use I bought this a month ago and glad I did. The soil was so compacted and hard that this made digging holes possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works I bought this auger for use when replacing broken and rotten posts. The anti-kickback feature is well worth it and works great, saved me on more than one occasion. Plenty of torque and digs well.
