What is a Earth Auger ?
A hole digger is a device that stirs the soil by rotating a tool called a drill and digs it with a certain depth and diameter (certain volume) and transfers it out of the pit through a helix structure like a drill. According to the type of use, there are different hole diggers such as manual, motorized and tractor-mounted. The pits created by the digger are used for digging pits, planting trees, fencing, installing electric poles, etc. Although the use of hole drilling devices is simple, but like any other mechanical device, it requires safety precautions.
