Ok gang,,, Iíve got a dirt hole auger that itís approximately 2 inches in diameter,, I put it into my 18 volt black and decker cordless and it ainít got the stuff to pop in a holeÖ I hooked up my regular corded drill to see if maybe the ground was to hard,,, and it popped in a perfect hole. What size drill you guys using??? I kinda like that auger if I can get it to work.

18 v Ryobi with 3 amp batteries is what I use. Maybe your batteries are weak.

Ive got a 20v with extra battery. Two auger heads, one 1.5" and one 3.5" and it works just fine all day dirtholes.
In really hard or frozen ground the smaller auger works better.

I just got a 1.5" and use a milwaukee 18V. Worked awesome if you keep going in and out. i was impressed, and really like how it can work up trap bed area.
