40V HP BRUSHLESS 8" EARTH AUGER KIT is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 361.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the power! The whole line of 40v tools is excellent, surprising the strength and duration of continuous power of this auger. Was unsure how well it would hold up under load but the power is never-ending. Great line of tools!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blows my gas auger away I have a sign business and install a lot of post and poles. I was on a job site trying to drill through some dry hard packed Clay with my earth auger 43cc gas when and it was having a hard time then died on the 1st of 6 holes so I went to HD and bought this 40v Ryobi auger and charged the battery and went back to the site and using my 6 in earth auger bit it filled the first 3 holes in about 15 minutes then moved to a different site where the ground was like cement the earth auger bit couldn't do it so I switched to the 8 in Ryobi bit and that thing is great it broke though in about 30 second's and went 24 inch in another 30 second's. I'm 100% happy with this auger and will not by another gas one again I now have 5 junk gas augers just taking up space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive in hard soil! My wife ordered this to assist in digging holes for a wood fence. We live on top of a mountain with VERY hard soil and rocks. I had serious doubts about this product until I started using it. It is a BEAST. It tore through the very tough ground much better than I ever imagined! My yard is essentially a thin layer of dirt and sand stone with rocks! The anti-kick back feature does work really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Power! Was worried to buy a battery powered auger, however, I’m glad I did. This thing delivered well above my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Amazing Auger ! Ryobi auger is not heavy , no gas required even cut thru a tree root impressive , saved my old friend’s back and time putting post down . Wants to borrow for his fence job at home , He was amazed at the power the battery had with no cord pulling or gas required this is great for old folks like us that still want to do projects on our own , Thank you for making tools that help us enjoy doing things ourselves

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked great at first Not sure what happened but I used it half a dozen times the first week that I purchased it and had no problems at all. Then my switch stopped turning off the auger would keep moving even when I was done using it. After it seem to resolve itself and I called customer service, Stopped working completely and I have to take it in to have it fixed. Not sure I had much of a chance to see all that it could do. Hopefully the replacement or the repair will cure the problem. I’ve been totally happy with all my other Ryobi products
