The 3 in. x 7 in. and 2 in. x 7 in. garden auger drill bits are easy to use and will transform your garden with ease. Save $15 with this kit.


Tackle any garden project with power and safety

The variable speed brushless motor of the DeWalt 996 drill provides steadfast power to Power Planter augers. Its capability to go from a maximum of 450 RPM up to 2,000 RPM at its upper limit means it’s just as suited for digging through heavy soil as it is driving a screw. The motor’s high-efficiency design supplies you with up to 75% more run time compared to a brushed model.

Power Planter is the ONLY DeWalt Distributor that sells this special drill package deal.

The DeWalt 996 drill also features a heavy-duty ½-inch ratcheting chuck with carbide inserts. This ensures that whatever type of bit you’re using, it will hold on securely and without slippage. Its 2 lithium-ion batteries means you’ll have full cordless freedom, making it perfect for use in your garden or backyard.

The drill’s bright LED spotlight enables you to work in waning daylight or in confined spaces without losing sight of what you’re doing. Other features include a belt hook for easy portability, a 360-degree side handle for added stability during use, and a second handle for added safety and ease of use with shorter augers.

The garden auger package includes:

  • Our Garden Planting Auger & Grass Plug Tool (2 in. x 7 in.) – one of the ideal garden power tools for planting 4- and 6-pack annuals in containers, planting grass plugs, or planting seeds in the garden quickly.
  • Our Bulb Auger & Bedding Plant Tool (3 in. x 7 in.) – great for planting potted plants, fall bulbs, or even tackling small projects around the house (like mixing potting soils and mixing small batches of cement or mortar).

The best garden tools for homeowners

This Special Starter Pack is an excellent choice for any gardener who loves to play in the soil. The garden auger drill bits are easy to use will perform perfectly with the proven Dewalt 996 drill model. All you need to do is secure the auger bit and you’re ready to start digging!
