    Great auger!
    Honest Pest Solutions uses the BT 45 to install all of our termite baiting systems. It is a great auger for termite and pest control companies. Not heavy, uses different auger bits and sizes. It will pay for its self in no time at all. The good news if that is what you use it for, it is a cheaper option than the bigger augers. With a 3" drill head the BT 45 has no problem going 12"-18" deep. Even in the Georgia red clay.

    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!

    more power would be nice
    easy start, soft ground works well. Hard clay clutch stalls it.,could use a nitrous system.Works well for plant bulbs in soft soil.

    Owned & used for 2 years, Stihl going strong!
    I've had my BT130 for about two years now and it is going strong as when it was new. I bore 6" holes with this unit in all kinds of soil from easy sandy loam to PIA clay with rock. The BT130 and 6" auger bit work great. The emergency stop clutch is a real knee saver! I have students that help me now and again. I wouldn't let them use any other unit. I can't afford to have an inexperienced person hurt themselves due to machine error and the BT130 clutch keeps them safe. I expect to put the Earth ... read more Auger through it's paces again this year and I know it will do the job without issue. Gotta love a well designed and built machine!

    back saver
    We 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.
