    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.

    BT45
    As 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.

    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.

    I highly recommend this post holder auger!!
    Huge time saver, dependable, more then enough power, light weight and one main important feature, The safety bar!! I was putting in some post holes in ground with hard clay with rocks and tree roots. Instead of causing serious injury (broken wrist or jerking your shoulder out of socket) or just kicking me off the digger the auger stops, but the motor will still runs. Saved my Beacon!! I research several post hole diggers, with out naming them, they were all less expensive, no safety devise, ... read more larger motors but cheaply built. I would rather spend more but save money down the road and have a piece of equipment that will give me years of service. Not to mention I would rather buy from a dealer ( Allseasons power equipment in Eugene Ore Great Folks with super Service!) then if there are any issues you have a trusted dealer that can help you out!!

    Solid performer
    Bought this auger to support our custom mailbox business and it’s done a solid job. Quality and reliability are key for our business. This is why we went with Stihl over other augers that were much less expensive. Cutting through undisturbed soil,clay, gravel and smaller roots is no problem with the 8 inch auger bit. A hole takes only a minute or so to complete. Great job Stihl team!!!

    Couldnt ask for More
    I'm a 60 year old female who decided to install the earth anchors for my new shed myself. I've always been one to do anything I can myself. Well turned out that the shed required ten 30" anchors. I tried twisting one all the way down but couldn't get in down further than about 24 inches. I rented this auger and, wow, am so glad I did. It is extremely easy to use, very light, and started up after 2nd pull each time. I had all of the holes done in no time. Worked like a charm. If I had the need to ... read more buy one, this Stihl BT131 would be it. You wont be disappointed.
