About Post Hole Borer Auger
An Auger is a drill. As the name suggests, a post hole borer auger is a drill used for creating post holes and can be used for a large number of different applications. You have a wide variety of options when looking for a post hole borer auger from manual, twist augers through to petrol powered automatic augers.
When choosing the right auger for you, consider the applications you will use it for. You will have to consider the diameter of the post holes you are looking to bore as well as the depth. This will determine the size of the auger head required and the need for any extension poles. Also look at the number of holes required and frequency of use as this will determine if a manual or powered auger is best.
These tools can be used for alternative applications. Whilst post hole boring is the obvious application, they are also very useful for general gardening duties such as planting or for preparing the ground to support pagoda erection, gazebo installation, putting up a rose arch or working in challenging soil conditions such as heavy clay.
A post hole borer auger offers a much more precise and secure hole and foundation than the traditional alternative of digging. By boring a hole you preserve the integrity of the surrounding soil and this removes the problems and frustrations of the hole walls collapsing in on themselves. This makes the hole and ultimately the post or structure that goes in to it much more stable.
