  • Install Termite Bait Stations – Termites aren’t just an annoyance, they can cause incredible amounts of damage to your property, but their presence isn’t always visible in the beginning. A subterranean infestation calls for aggressive action. For exterminators, an earth auger makes it much easier to drill into the ground to install termite bait stations.
  • Plant Bulbs – Power Planter augers drill into the ground for efficient bulb planting, creating evenly spaced and deep holes. These tools are designed to be used with any power drill, which gives you the freedom to use a bulb digger cordlessly.
  • Post Hole DiggingLarger augers aren’t just for planting gallon pots. They can also be used to dig post holes. Contractors can use them when installing decks, fences or other projects that require a lot of digging. Homeowners will find an auger makes tasks such as digging holes for a mailbox post a much easier job.
  • Sand Auger for Beach Day – If you take frequent trips to the beach, bring an auger instead of a shovel to dig a hole, so you can put up your umbrella or a volleyball net.
  • Make Potting Mix – Augers are handy for mixing. In fact, you can use one to create your own potting soil mix by combining peat moss, compost and perlite. Doing it yourself can save you money over pre-made commercial mixes.
  • Remove Clogs – Augers can clear straight stretches of drain. Use a correctly sized auger in PVC drain lines to remove clogs.
  • Dig Horizontally – Sometimes, the job requires you to dig horizontally. If you need to run plumbing or conduit beneath a sidewalk, then an auger is one of the most efficient waysto make the hole without tearing a section of the sidewalk.
  • Tilling Garden Beds – Our augers make it easy to weed garden beds, loosen soil and get rid of the larvae of harmful pests. Tilling with an auger can cut down on the amount of work you have to do for a new or large garden.
  • Digging Irrigation Trenches – If you need to dig out trenches for irrigation or a sprinkler system, our augers can make the job simpler and faster. Simply drill a series of holes in line and then dig out the loose soil with a shovel. There’s no need to rent expensive equipment or pay a contractor to do what you can accomplish with one of our augers, a drill, and a little bit of time. You could potentially save thousands of dollars.
