Gasoline powered and lightweight for whatever the job requires
Don’t just make a hole – make a statement. STIHL augers and drills are engineered to stand out from the rest, combining power, portability and precision. Their gasoline-powered engines deliver the force you need wherever the job takes you, especially when electrical outlets are nowhere to be found.
STIHL augers and drills are lightweight and ready to use – and possess the kind of technology that prompt professional landscapers and contractors to choose STIHL for their handheld outdoor power equipment needs.
From mass flower plantings and fence and dock construction to building repair and pest control – even core drilling in concrete – these versatile tools help make life much easier, especially for those working with them.

Great AugerI have a horse boarding business and purchased the hand held auger over a tractor attachment for installing fences, and building new stalls inside my barn. I didn't have enough money to buy both an attachment for my tractor and buy the hand held unit (needed for building stalls inside the barn) so I went with the hand held BT 130 and couldn't be happier. I've put up 20 acres of new pasture fence (posts spaced 12 feet apart, and installed 20 new stalls in my barn (boarders were thrilled) using ... this bad boy and it sure gets the job done. The safety features on this auger are a MUST. I rented an auger when I started to update my stalls, and after running it for only 3 hours returned it for fear it was going to break my wrist when it hit a rock. Not only is the BT 130 much more powerful, but the safety bar in it stops the auger when it hits something too hard sparing you a trip to the hospital. I'm not going to lie and say it doesn't hurt when you hit a rock, the safety bar will leave some good bruises on your legs, but its much better than being laid up with a broken wrist. This is truly a farm tool that you can use all day long, and will be ready to use the next day, Stihl makes the best power tools. After using it for 7 or 8 hours it can start to feel a little heavy, but I have done the same amount of work as a friend of mine did with his tractor auger, and he was surprised how quickly I got my new pastures opened up. This can make a three foot deep, 6in post hole in 20 seconds (if you don't hit a rock). I do recommend a manual post hole digger and steel rod for getting out bigger stones in your way and clearing the hole clean after drilling it.
stihlstihl post hole digger and all other these nice stihl products deserves all 5 stars because they are all 100% more reliable and more long lasting brand than any other brand power tools brand out there
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 ... 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!

BT45As a large landscape company we use this drill with 3" and 4" bits for planting in prepped beds. It does its job exactly as designed. The added/moveable handle is a great feature on this drill.
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.
multi use property owners must have tool.Used for fence post in some pretty tough, compacted, & a bit rocky dirt . The BT45 kicked butt! chewed through dirt well beyond its purposed intention. Also worked wonders repurposed as a soil mixer just add amendments and let the BT45 go to work. It mixes soil like a kitchen mixer.
