Earth Auger Buyer's Guide
November 18, 2016 – 11:03 pm

Whether you're tasked with digging holes for fence posts, a mailbox or gardening, shoveling dirt can be a real hassle.

Earth augers make it faster and less excruciating. They come in one-man or two-man styles, and the bits can be changed for different jobs.

The size of the holes and the frequency of use is going to determine which kind of hole digger you need.

One-Man Earth Augers
If you have around a dozen smaller holes to dig, you'll be better off using a one-man earth auger.

These augers weigh significantly less, and require half of the labor.

If you're working alone on a relatively small to medium sized project, you won't want the added weight, size, and unnecessary power of a two-man auger.

Two-Man Earth Augers

These are for the big jobs. For example - you and a buddy are building a deck, and you need larger holes for cementing in the load-bearing posts.

One-Man AugerTwo-man earth augers are heavier and bulkier, but are also more powerful. These beasts are the better choice for heavy clay-based or rocky soil.

They're called two-man earth augers for a reason, but for serious digging, this is the machine to use.
