Didn't Work for Me

The Maxbit couldn't penetrate the soil in my garden. Hence, it was useless.

I had high hopes for this tool to help me dig holes in my very dry, hard, clay soil for planting succulents, drought-tolerant and hearty native plants. In reality, because the neck of the Maxbit has no gripping capability when put into the drill, it just stops spinning whenever the slightest resistance is applied, as the drill is activated. It should have some way to be securely locked into the drill. Maybe it works well in powdery soil ... but why would you need such a tool in powdery soil? So ... unfortunately, this goes on my list of relatively useless tools. Sorry, Maxbit makers. Good try: but not quite there. If you add some way to lock it into the drill ... you'd improve the usefulness a hundredfold. Also ... I don't suppose you'd give me my money back, would you?

This bit did not work well for me. The looser dirt and mulch was dug out easily but when digging through the deeper, more packed dirt, it was ineffective.

Good, not great-doesn’t really push dirt aside like a corkscrew design

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 Made in the USA, 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 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. more Their Story
