Wish I had bought one of these years agoI purchased the BT45 last fall with the intention of planting spring flowering bulbs, spring annuals, small perennials and ground covers with the auger as a time and back saver. The auger has a 2 speed gear box which came in handy with denser clay soils in low gear, high gear is used for most soils though. Low vibration, good on fuel, starts up well, power is perfect for the augers intended use. This auger is not for installing big fence posts or very rocky, super dense soils. We installed ... 24 flats of pansies yesterday with the auger, amazing how much quicker, neater, loosens the soil well, can not imagine going back to digging with a trowel for smaller plants installs.
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.
more power would be niceeasy start, soft ground works well. Hard clay clutch stalls it.,could use a nitrous system.Works well for plant bulbs in soft soil.

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
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!
