Don’t dig holes in the garden—drill them.

Don’t dig holes in the garden—drill them.

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.

    You could make holes in that soil by sneezing.

    Come try that in my girlfriend’s flower bed. Bet you’d brake something. 😐

    Con la tierra así de suelta, no necesito excavar con ningún aparato, con la mano puedo hacer el pozo! 😅😂

    Am I supposed to be impressed by drilling into soft compost, which I could do with my hand?

    It looks really good, but can you do a demo working it on "normal" soil rather than the perfectly loose soil?

    I would be interested in trying this but I’m a little bit annoyed that they’re not showing the right way to plant! Do your plants a favour and loosen up those roots a bit! It’s also better to throw a bit of bone meal in the hole, add some water, put the plant in, then water some more. And yes like the previous comments say, this soil is artificially loose.

    Like all the other comments, this is loose soil. Please demo it on a ‘real garden scenario’ of packed soil after winter.

    Just planted some ground cover under a maple tree yesterday, This thing would have just skated around on the root-infested soil. I had to use a hatchet for some holes. Thinking of using drill though, but with a hole saw.

    How to buy this in India

    I use a tulip auger on a drill. It works great on clay soil.

    That soil is stupidly loose. Could dig that hole with your hand. Terrible example, even though the product itself looks cool.

  15. Jake Flo on December 10, 2021 at 1:46 pm
