The Power Planter drill attachments are a real time saver. My wife and I plant 100’s of plants every year and last spring was a breeze with the Power Planter.

  • Michael G.

  • Kevin K.


I grow my own annuals from seed and plant them all. I have dug literally 100’s and 100’s of holes in my gardens every year and each year it gets more challenging. Last year I purchased the power planters and WOW!!!! My hand and wrist don’t hurt anymore.

  • Sherry L.

I paired this Power Planter tool with my DeWalt cordless 20V drill for outstanding results. Initially, I thought I would just use it to drill holes to plant bulbs. What I quickly discovered was that I could use this tool much like a small, hand-held “roto-tiller”.

  • Jerry R.

It’s the best planting tool I’ve ever found. It breaks up the hardest dirt with ease. I throw in some fertilizer or compost and use it to mix and soften the planting hole.

  • Kay B.

Ordered a 3″ x 36″ augur bit – it arrived quickly and certainly is sturdy enough to bore the holes required from my new pool fence – very pleased with the quality.
