I was expecting great things from this product. My daughter is a landscaper and had 60 flats of annuals to plant. Unfortunately, it only works works on well tilled soil. I couldn’t even make a small dent in my garden bed. Sorry, it has to be returned. Poor design!More > < Less


Not impressed

The dirt must have to be really soft because it didn’t work for me.

The Garden Hole Digging Drill Bit did NOT work well. I was thoroughly disappointed. In theory it is a good tool; in practice it did not work very well.

As soon as it came in contact with a root, twig or various burried items (that one would expect in the ground) the tool got hung up, jammed, bound up.

It did make a good shape hole; but the shape of a hole is not that relative or important for planting vegetables.

I would NOT recommend this tool and give it a failing rating.

As I decided to plant six inch plants the larger unit described as 12"x 5" x 5" would be needed and I paid the extra ten dollars. After use the following facts were evident, the hole is not as big as indicated and that's because the true dimensions are 12" x 3 3/4" x 3 3/4". Its use in untiled soil only applies if the soil is soft and moist and devoid of small rocks. If the hole had been five inches, a six inch plant would go in the hole. My conclusion, if I had known the true size of this item I would not have purchased it.More > < Less


Didn’t work for me

I bought this digger last year but didn’t use it until this Spring. It clogged with dirt and took me much longer to dig a hole than it did once I gave up and dug a hole with a hand shovel. I’m disappointed.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.
