Worth it to me!

7 trees planted now! Had been trying to dig the holes with a spade but to no avail such hard soil and clay. Could easily drill a bigger hole and put in compost for good start growth. You like to be able to do these things yourself. So it was worth it to me. Great customer service with my questions and I also watched the video for handy hints and safety. Quality products: I bought the drills a couple of years ago which didn't work well with my little battery drill Will be planting the rest of the trees next autumn with it.

Best Garden Tool

Goes through hard clay like a dream and makes short work of difficult sites with compacted soil. Excellent!

Fanbloodytastic! I love it, I had 8 shrubs to plant, hard soil, planted them in less than half the time normally takes with the spade.

DeWalt 996 Cordless Drill

I could have purchased this item from a local store and it may have been cheaper but what was more important to me was the explanatory video showing me how best to use it. I’m an 84 year old and never owned a drill previously and it’s incorrect use could have been damaging to me. I’ve planted almost 1200 daffodil bulbs in all types of soils and am ready to plant more. It’s great!

Great tool

I’ve just bought a life style block and needing to plant plenty of trees. This has made the job so much easier. I got the drill and the 312.
