Power Planter 528H


5inch (12.5cm) wide by 28inch (70cm) long allows you to be standing whilst drilling the holes in soil.
Being a larger auger it is recommend you use a High Powered Variable Speed 240v or petrol powered Drill (13mm chuck) with side handle and clutch to protect you against kickback. 
It has a common 13mm (1/2inch) hex head. 

NOTE: We don't generally recommend this size Power Planter for home garden use. This is a professional grade auger used by Landscapers and does require a higher spec Drill and previous knowledge with power tools.
For DIY home garden Power Planters, please see the Home Gardener Range at this link

Popular uses are:

  • Rapidly planting 5inch potsize plant stock inground. (Also suitable for planting smaller tubestock where you want to improve the soil by adding compost to the hole)
  • Drilling multiple holes and moving sideways between them to cultivate the soil deeply
  • Drilling a 125mm diameter tunnel under a path
  • Tree Planting and applying fertiliser tablets deep into soil. 
  • Post Hole digging to exactly 5inches wide with minimal external soil disturbance. 
  • Mixing barrow loads of Concrete/mortar
  • Mixing fertiliser into soil mix
  • Mixing paint
  • Digging a trench for plumbing and irrigation - by drilling holes to required depth consecutively along the line and then remove any remaining soft soil with a trenching shovel or by hand. 

 N.B. We hope it is pretty obvious... but we better say it - The price does not include the Dewalt Drill shown in the demonstration images. The Power Planter can fit onto any standard Australian drills with a 13mm chuck. (eg. Ryobi, Bosch, Black and Decker, Hitachi, etc )

Power planter 528H

I have not used this product as yet, but I know from what I got that this will help me dig holes easily, quickly and without much effort. For this reason I bought the Power planter 528H. It arrived promptly and in good condition and looking at it I believe the product is quite strong and well built.

Better than expected

Hungry ground full of rocks and clay that takes ages to dig holes of any size is no longer an issue. Make sure you have a handle - and a clutch if possible - else you will feel it's full power. Wish I had this when I did the fencing project!

6 inch power planter

Yes it worked a treat saved me digging 500 holes by hand in 2 days. Ground needs to be soft ie damp and it bites /stalls the battery drill in rocky soil. The auger did the job expected of it.

Fastest way I know to dig holes. I am about to plant 500 Azaleas which I hope to do single handed (with my power planter and dewalt) in one day. Not an add I intend to do it.
