With a 24inch long Power Planter™ you can comfortably stand up and drill into your soil with very little effort. Very popular with landscapers but also a great tool to have in your shed. You wont even hesitate the next time you need to plant something when this tool makes it so easy.
Also great for tunnelling holes under paths, aerating your compost heap, mixing fertiliser into your potting mix, mixing mortar, and even creating deep holes around trees to get water and fertiliser down to where the roots need it.
It will be your new favourite tool in the shed and one your neighbours might try and steal!
Please Note: This one requires a 13mm (1/2 inch) chuck on your drill. 90% of drills have this, but there are a few smaller models that only have a 10mm chuck. Id also recommend no smaller than a 18V drill to power this one, along with a larger capacity battery eg. 4-5A. It will work on the others but not last long.
Of course you can use it on a 240V and go all day. Be sure to put any drill you use on the slowest setting and attach the side handle that came with the drill (its probably in the box the drill came in ;-)
N.B. We hope it is pretty obvious, but just in case we better say it anyway. The price does not include the Dewalt Drill shown in the demonstration images. The Power Planter can fit onto any standard Australian drills. (eg. Ryobi, Bosch, Black and Decker, Hitachi, etc )
It made digging a pleasure. A marvellous tool.
I had the Power Planter in my hands very promptly after ordering and was out in the garden immediately, planting daffodil bulbs alongside the drive. I wondered how it would perform, digging into compacted gravel. What a surprise - 40 holes drilled in less than 30 minutes with no effort at all! Couldn't believe it. Since then we have used the Power Planter extensively, boring holes in a steep clay bank to create post holes for steps. It's small and light enough for one person to manage on an awkward site. The Power Planter does all that is claimed. Great product and great service.
Does not fit in either of our 18v cordless drills so we can't use it!! One us a Bosch. We are Very disappointed.
Great invention. I have very hard clay soil out in West Aucklandand it has worked a treat. My son has stolen it from me for now to use at his place. Miserable buggar - he can afford to buy his own!
Great tool, highly recommend to all. Great for planting and turning over the soil. I also had to dig a 600 deep trench for a electrical cable in hard clay, I did a series of holes with the power planter to loosen the clay, worked a treat. Thanks guys.
