If you really love the idea of not having to hand dig your garden anymore then I want to ask you to not just get one Power Planter. Sure it will do a great job, but like any tool, you will do a whole lot better if you have the range to choose from depending on the job.
When I'm in the garden, some jobs require extensive work where I'll grab the longer 324 model and use it standing up, other times Im just working with seedlings and I dont want to disturb all the soil so the small 207 is just perfect. And then right in the middle is the 307 for everyday gardening, freshening up the soil, cultivating fibrous roots in old garden beds and so on. I just have them all handy and the jobs get done so much faster.
These 3 sizes will have you totally covered.
1 x Power Planter 207 model - 2 inch wide x 7 inch long (perfect for seedlings and small bulbs where you want to naturalise in the lawn but not create large holes everywhere) $59.00
1 x Power Planter 307 model - 3 inch wide x 7inches long (General garden use where you are on your knees amongst the plants or for digging deep in the vegie patch) $69.95
1 x Power Planter 324H model* - 3 inch wide with a 24inch long solid steel shaft (Pull this one out when creating a new bed, or getting thoroughly stuck into rejuvenating an old one. Also great for tunneling under paths, drilling deep holes beside trees for fertiliser tablets and watering, mixing concrete/mortar in a barrow or bucket and much more) $129.00
3 x pairs of Washable Garden Gloves - My favourite Gardening Gloves. Nitrile coated gives you grip when using the Power Planter, but protects your hands and keeps them clean. Breathable fabric back, also great for wiping the sweat off your brow. $17.97 ($5.99 x 3)
Please Note: Price does not include the great looking Dewalt Drill - But you might like to go and buy one! I recommend the 995 model and get a 4 Amp battery too and you will be happy for years!
*The 324H Power Planter requires a 13mm chuck which is the most common size chuck in Australia but there are some (a small amount) of drills that have a 10mm chuck- no idea why they would do that! .
Shipping: $15.50 flat rate to all of Australia.
Should had brought these years ago. It just makes holes, digging, planting so simple it’s not a task That concerns me anymore. Why did I wait so long.
I’d watched the videos and thought hmmm that looks good but until I tried it for myself I didn’t realise just how good. Our ground is like concrete but the power planter goes through like a hot knife through butter, it’s so easy (and actually fun) to use.
Great tool saves time on small plants save effort when planting posts. Built a steel post & sleeper retaining wall using a good cordless drill dug holes 600mm plus deep no effort goes through gravel driveway easily the .instructions on how to use the planter effectively are spot on.
As a middle age woman who loves to be in the garden I struggle with a lack of upper body strength. The auger was fabulous I managed to dig a hole big enough to install a clothes line. Definitely take the time to watch the instructional video, there is technique to getting the best results.
I could not get a shovel in our drought ridden soil and I'm not very handy but ... the power planter does everything it promises. I made sure I watched the videos and have not had a problem. I do a little, wet the hole & surrounds, then return & dig a little more, so far have planted 5 plants & am very happy, Jacqui, Orange NSW.
