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.

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 )
We drilled most of the holes for our fence with this.
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.
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!
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.
