Different types of earth augers
Augers, soil drills, auger drills, planter drills, well drills or pile drills – you can find earth augers under all sorts of different names. First, you have to distinguish between smaller models for home use and large, hydraulic augers that are mounted on excavators. Hydraulic drills are usually used in agriculture or in the construction industry to drill very large, deep holes in the earth. However, a smaller auger, which is also significantly cheaper in price, is generally sufficient for redesigning your garden at home.
The devices for home use can also be divided into three categories, which differ according to the type of drive. In addition to manual earth augers that are manually screwed into and out of the earth, there are also models with motors powered either by petrol or a battery. All devices work wirelessly, but our battery-powered model, unlike petrol augers, does not cause any exhaust fumes, works very quietly and weighs significantly less than the petrol models. In addition, you save a lot of power because you do not need to turn the drill into the ground yourself and pull it back out again – the battery and motor support you. Above all, if you want to drill several holes in quick succession, for example to place fence posts, motor support is an advantage.
Battery-powered augers offer many advantages over manual and petrol augers.
