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 )
Purchased the 528H and so far it has been great. Have been using it to dig post holes. Definitely requires a decent drill with a higher power battery. Have placed a 6.0Ah battery in my drill and it handles it well even in the rock hard ground in my yard.
Soooo good!! Not only does it dig the hole, it conditions the soil as well. My crowbar and spade remove the soil in clods. The 528H turns it into loam. I bought the De Walt drill also. It makes a great combo with the Power Planter. Thoroughly recommended tools!.
We bought it and I a (39 year old female) have planted close to a hundred plants in it in a rural garden. In a variety of soil conditions. We improved the soil months back which definitely made a difference however some plants (and some DIY garden lights) that were cemented into place the ground was hard and horrible. I used an excellent quality (Milwalkee) drill with the extra attachment in place to give you more stability while drilling - just as the Power Planter Help videos suggest. I struck rocky ground and times where the Power planter bit fell out of the chuck - but the Power Planter definitely helped me get my Landscaping done so much faster and easier than I could of done by myself (even with trade quality tools we have at hand) Its lovely to sit back now and enjoy the rewards! My garden is AMAZING :)
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.
