    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.

    Grow trees to protect the world
    I 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 ... read more 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

    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!

    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.

    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!
