Frequently Asked Questions

Will a Heavy-Duty Auger Work in Clay Soil?

Yes, a heavy-duty auger can work in clay soil. How effective your digging experience is will depend on several factors, including the size of the auger, the moisture content of the soil, and the power of your drill. 

Do I Need a More Powerful Drill to Use a Heavy-Duty Auger?

If you are using earth auger bits with a diameter of less than 7” and are digging less than 12 inches into loose soil, then you will need an 18V – 20V drill at minimum. For larger heavy-duty augers and for use in more challenging soil conditions, we recommend a 60V drill.

To use your heavy-duty auger safely, make sure you use appropriate personal protective equipment, such as gloves, eye protection, and sturdy footwear. Also, be aware of any underground utilities and other potential hazards before you begin drilling with your heavy-duty auger.
