This looked like a good idea so I bought it. I have arthritis in my hands and this really helped me with my fall planting. I also use it to putting a pole in the ground as well as larger bushes. It is a fantastic tool.More > < Less


This is SO nice!

I do a lot of planting so I got this to help out. It creates perfect holes to plant items in a 6" pot. I like it so well, I plan to buy the 4" drill bit soon. I bought this with the extension so I don't have to bend over out in the yard, but when removed you can plant 6" pots all day. This is very well made of steel with a powder coat to protect it from rusting. It does NOT throw dirt all over the place like another brand I tried. You can't go wrong with this product.More > < Less


Great tool

Absolutely love it! Bought it for my husband to plant flower bulbs, by he had surgery & couldn't get down to plant. He attached it to the drill for me & in less than a minute I had about 8-10 holes dug. It easily cut through some small roots. I had my 75 flower bulbs planted in no time! Bought the smaller bit knowing a hole could be made larger with it. It does sling dirt when first drilling but the time saver is well worth it.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.
