Our Post Hole Auger is a professional landscaper’s go-to choice when planting gallon potted plants or shrubs. It’s perfect for 4 x 4 fence post hole digging, too. The auger is designed to leave room for cement around the post when digging holes. This heavy-duty auger features a 1.25-inch shaft made from 100 percent steel.

The Perfect Auger for Digging Post & Gallon Pot Holes

This auger measures 28 inches long and has a 7-inch diameter. The post digger features a 1.25-inch shaft made from 100% steel and double 10-gauge flighting.

We recommend using a gas powerhead with this post auger – but you can also use a large electric drill with a side handle. Look no further for a drill for your new auger. Our DeWalt 60v Max Drill Kit provides the power you need PLUS a battery and box – available only from Power Planter!

Our Gallon Pot & Post Hole Augers Are Versatile

The tube drive with a heavy-duty tip (THD) is the most rugged and versatile option for this auger. Use the dropdown menu above to choose the “THD” option. The heavy duty digging tip is a replaceable auger tip that will help you tackle the most challenging digging tasks without damaging the main auger. The leading portion of the digging tip has replaceable auger blades (included with purchase). This allows for an easier and more cost-efficient way to keep your equipment performing in top condition for decades.

About Tube Drives

The tube drive auger can fit various drills or powerheads with the help one of our Adapters (sold separately). Our adaptable tube drive augers feature 2 holes with pins for mounting and will fit auger powerheads with a 3/4-inch shaft. This is a smart option for professional landscaping businesses who need to switch between drills and powerheads throughout the day. See graphics below for more details.
