Creates perfectly round, flat-bottomed holes · Fast, easy, and neat · No more trowel or shovel
Fit this garden hole digger onto your power drill to dig faster and easier—and neater—than a shovel or trowel. The powder-coated steel bit has angled blades that create a perfectly round, flat-bottomed hole to fit standard 4” or 6” potted plants. The drill bit compresses soil into the sides and bottom of the hole, so there’s no mound of dirt left over.
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 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.
