Great tool!

5/10/2019 by Debbie

My husband and I were skeptical at first. But decided to buy it, since it could be returned if not satisfied. Well, we are glad we bought it. Saved us hours of hard work in planting our garden. We bought the extension so my husband could use Maxbit without bending.More > < Less

We are impressed with the sturdiness and look forward to planting soon.


Why did this tool not come out years ago?

My husband and I were able to dig the holes for over 100 bulbs in under an hour. He drilled the holes and I popped in the bulbs. We were done in no time. My husband was concerned that drilling holes in the dirt might burn out the drill but the drill is fine and the bulbs are planted.More > < Less

I love it! At first my husband and I thought it wouldn't work because the "blades aren't sharp and the thing is really really heavy. But it does work! cuts thru my clay soil with ease , After using it I can eeasly make the hole a little wider if needed.More > < Less

Easy Digging

The idea to create a garden hole digger came to Maker Michele Morton when she was helping folks in her community plant their gardens. She made The MAXBIT drill attachment to do the digging job quickly, easily, and more neatly.

The patented curved angles of the bit compress dirt into the bottom and sides of the hole, resulting in a perfectly round, flat-bottomed hole each time. This compressing action eliminates the pile of dug-out dirt for you to deal with when you’re done. The bit and its extension piece fit on most common power drills, and are made in West Point, Mississippi with ultra-tough steel that’s powder coated to prevent rust.

The MAXBIT works in tilled or untilled soil, and makes holes to fit standard 4” or 6” potted plants. With the power of a drill doing the digging, planting a garden is easier—and faster—than ever.
