Get's the job done!We were a little worried that this bad boy wouldn't have enough power to get through the rocks but it's great! Make sure to bring a post hole digger and pike to get through the tough spots. Also, the quick stop brake on it is definitely needed or else it would break your knees!
Auger brake lever is a very good feature but, I've had a few issues with the BT 130.The 4 screws (surrounding the drilling spindle) that attach the grip/frame to the powerhead loosened after just a few days of use and 2 fell out and were lost before the issue was noticed. The Stihl dealer didn't stock the same size screws. I replaced the screws and used Loctite. It's very hard to believe that Stihl wouldn't have addressed this issue!! The auger wanted to die at idle during the first few days of use. I adjusted the idle speed but it was still an issue, and I was even using the ... Stihl MotoMix for the first few tankfuls. It is idling fine now after a few weeks of use.
back saverWe are glad we purchased this auger. It blasts right through northern michigans sandy/pebble soil. We made quick work of 500 saplings..however didn't give it five stars because it stalled on us numerous times. Not that big a deal ,as it fired right back up with an easy pull start. Figured out that it was best to get it spinning before you touched the ground.

Grow trees to protect the worldI am from Indonesia, where we need to encourage to plant more trees, as most of the forest has been illegally sawn off in the past, Indonesia having more than 17,000, island, needs many kind of technologies to improve the forest by planting more and more trees, with the young generation, I had identified the solution, is to use BT 45, which is convenient and WILL keep the younger generation from moving out to the modern cities. I had browsed the SITHL sites, and unable to get dealers nearby ... with the BT 45. Can I get help from STIHL USA, to get two units, with complete accessories for plants send by airfreight, so that I can display them during the Forestry meeting to be held in the province of Maluku Utara on 15th of Feb, I will give full details once I receive the response from STIHL.I will pay for the product. This is for the community, to understand there are products, which can be used efficiently for better future
Works Great!Bought this to plant flowers, dig holes for landscaping, and for post holes. I have also used it to soften dirt for trenches. It chews through roots, clay, and weed mat without difficulty. An awesome little machine!
Beyond the suggested use...I bought and used two of these to plant a wetland mitigation site. I had to fabricate a piece to allow me to run a larger bit-- the 4" ones designed for planting one gallon plants. The ground we were working in is soft floodplain loam, but I was able to plant between 10-15k plants before the units broke down significantly, both in the gear box. Well worth the $$ invested vs a shovel / laborers. Ended up buying a 121 to finish the job of the one gallon plants, and used the 45's (after repairs) ... to finish planting an additional 120k small grasses. (Used the small bits designed for the machine) The only major issues other than the gearbox was the throttle cables. They got sticky fast and were difficult to actuate. The spark arrestors clogged within the first week, rendering the machine inoperable, but they are easy to remove.
