Works great in Florida


This tool is super in our rather loose sandy soil. Quick and efficient. I was concerned it would tightly pack the margins of the hole but it brings most of the soil up and deposits it at the edge of the hole. Could be a bit more of a challenge in clay soil but I'd bet it would be a lot easier and quicker than other options.More > < Less


Great tool! Makes planting fun!


This is the best thing to make planting fun! I purchased the larger tool and I am so very happy with my purchase! Quality tool! The 8 year old neighbor came right over and helped me plant my flowers in my containers. He loved the tool also!More > < Less


Perfect tool


This is my favorite garden tool. It works so well and is actually fun. I got the extension also, great addition to a perfect tool.


Amazing product


I have used trowels with serrated edges for years to break up container soil that has a lot of roots throughout and nothing compares to this maxbit! I was so surprised at how quickly it drilled through the roots/soil and left me a perfectly sized hole in which to plant. I am so happy with this product!More > < Less


Love it!


I have trouble planting because there are lots of tree roots in some of my beds. I’m not strong enough to dig a nice hole. The max bit worked like magic. I bought the larger one which is great because I can transplant plants from larger pots.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.
