How to Choose the Best Drill for Digging
At Power Planter, we’re dedicated to making the highest-quality augers to help you tackle tough gardening and landscaping jobs with ease. Choosing an auger drill that delivers enough strength to get an auger through the soil can play a significant role in the success of your gardening project.
If you’re looking for the best drill for hole boring, consider these factors:
- Power supply: A corded model means you don’t have to worry about running out of juice, but a cordless one gives you the ability to work anywhere on a property.
- Speed: The more RPM the tool delivers, the less torque. This might make a difference when digging through dense soils, where torque can be important.
- Amperage: The higher the amperage, the more powerful the drill. If you’re using a longer bit, make sure you have enough strength to drive it.
- Variable speed: If the power tool you choose has variable speed, it can be very useful for auguring around a property. That’s because variable speed allows you to control the amount of torque the motor produces.
- Reverse: Switching into reverse mode can be convenient for easily removing the auger from the hole you’ve just dug.
- Keyless chuck: This feature allows you to switch between augers quickly, if needed.
