Spotlight customer reviews:
Customer Rating: Summary: heavy duty hole maker Comment: I bought this to drill holes into my heavy clay soil to drop in tree food spikes for my trees. So I'm going through grass/sod, roots, and the occasional thumb sized rock.
Once the top grass/sod is out of the way (all augers I've owned have trouble with this) it drives deep and cuts through the roots. Works pretty well.
The bevel on the drill end is pretty minor - almost non-existant. And there's only one bevel, so you'll have to tighten the chuck pretty well -exactly- on that one bevel to make sure this doesn't slip.... That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
This is slightly smaller diameter than I need so I have to use a less sturdy, but larger auger to finish the job. but I knew this when I bought it, so I can't ding the product for that... Customer Rating: Summary: Worth the extra cost........Much better than those sold by others.... Comment: I own 7 augers that I purchased from Custom Auger, including a few of their high end industrial models.
There is abig diference in theirs compared with the less expensive others sold on Amazon and hardware stores.
The difference is the cutting edge. It is made of much heavier steel.
Their service is beyond excellent. They ship on the same or next business day by Priority Mail. I usually get them in two or three days. You can't beat Tom and Becky. They are a family husband and wife business.
If you want the auger to last, buy from Custom Auger. If you want it for two or three holes, the cheap ones "MIGHT" do.
