What I expected the power planter to be When I started digging my garden It delivered beyond my expectations. So Thumbs up for the Power Planter

Dewalt 996 Drill

What a great piece of equipment. It drives both the 312 and the 324H without any sign of slowing down. It is a well made drill. Feels robust and easy to use. Would recommend this drill for pairing with the Power Planters. It also makes drilling through hard bricks like a hot knife through butter. Battery life is excellent. Throughly recommend this drill.

Life-changing! Superb combo!

I have stony-clay soil, and used with a dab-dab-dab motion as recommended, the Power Planter augers simply cast aside the obstacles and produce a fine tilth in no time. Exactly as demonstrated in the sales videos. The torque at setting 11 on 18v deWald drill recommended by Power Planter makes light work of any soil. Astonishingly effective, simple to use. My order was delivered to Darwin in 3 days from NSW. Highly recommended. At 77 I had resigned myself to not planting a great deal in future, but this combo is life-changing! Planting holes large and small are cropping up everywhere.

Dewalt drill kit

This drill kit is excellent for the power planter. The side handle is great at controlling the planter in hard ground. A drill with a resticted trigger would be great but I don't think they make them anymore. Phil
