In soft soil it works as described but in hard soil it didn't work.
I will have to try a stronger drill to see if that makes a difference.


Good with fresh soil

If you are using in soil already in your garden area it is hard to use but if you stay persistent you can get a good enough hole to use other tools to help get the size you need to plantMore > < Less


Good for small holes

Fine for planting small, previously potted (or just purchased) plants. But not for deeper holes as the dirt just fills in behind it.

I'm disappointed with this products, can't be used when it wet and can't be used when soil getting dried. It jumped around when I push down to dirt isn't lose. IT LOOK LIKE A PIECE A CAKE TO DO IT.More > < Less


Not impressed

I used my new Maxbit to plant 300 sunpatiens. If the soil was new or real soft it worked fine. Beaver soil I need to use my other drill bit.l bit. Maxbit needs to be sharper to cut through clay or header soil. I would not recommend this product. The concept is good but just not able to handle the Kansas soil.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.
