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 ;-)
Postage and Handling is a flat rate $12.00 to anywhere in NZ
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 )
I planted 10 small shrubs in very short time immediately on receipt and it proved ideal and I have used it many times since. I can see it becoming even more useful over time.
Thumbs up from Me, great piece of kit
We have to plant 1000 plant and trees so know anything to save time would help. Works great in softer soil and reasonable well in most clay soils. Some of our clay soils have larger stones and this can make the auger grab so make sure you use the extra handle on the drill.
Excellent product for the DIY'er , definitely use a mains powered (240volt) drill will this size of tool when digging in clay
we have not used it bugt tomorrow is the day we will test it out we have 100 grass plants to plant. will give a review in a couple of days
