I bought this because we had purchased 260 bulbs from Costco and there was no way I was going to dig that many holes manually.

The price is expensive on this. I really couldn't believe that I was about to pay this amount of money for an auger to plant bulbs. However, being made in the USA is excellent. Other reviews of the Chinese augers here on Amazon are 50-50 hit and miss and I didn't want to deal with that.

This did the job with my 1/2

I am probably not being fair. Let me say the auger worked, but being in the Arizona desert and trying to drill a hole the entire 24 inches is probably a little or a lot more then this was designed for. The soil is very very hard has lots of clay and very rocky. You would be that way being baked in the scorching sun year after year. I had to re-weld the cutting edge and tip about 5 times and regrind the edges. Water soak the holes and wait a couple hours for the water to disappear before going back to drill them. Like I said, it worked took a lot of work on my part but I knew that would be the case. All in all it did work. If you have soft soil and not planning on drilling to the center of the earth this is a great tool for the price.

We use these to drill holes on the beach to set up umbrellas. The cutting wedge breaks through the sea shells with ease. Have also used it in a gravel parking lot to dig holes. This product makes quick work of most any material you ask it to dig through.

The soil I wanted to plant in was very tough, compacted clay. It was what was left after the original contractor graded the subdivision. So it's been that way for a million years or so.

With a post-hole digger it would take about a half-hour to dig a hole about 10
