8 in. Earth Auger Bit

Tackle any digging job with the 8 in. Earth Auger Bit from Earthquake. It can be used on every Earthquake brand power head. The fishtail point and cutting blade are replaceable, so you'll get long-lasting use from this bit. It digs to a depth of 32 in. and is easy to use thanks to its shock spring.

No, I do not recommend this product.
I need to know how to return the two items (the power head and the auger) and get a full refund. The power head seems okay but the auger first broke the spring on the very first hole half way down. Then in trying to pull the machine out of the hole the shaft broke ???? Needless to say that I am very dissatisfied with this machine and want my money credited back to my credit card. Please respond and tell me how to go about the return process
Cons: Not Durable, broke digging first hole

Did well in the rocky AZ dirt. Did not show signs of damage after 6, 3ft deep holes, for fence posts. The bit is light and I like that several of the parts are replaceable. I bought this as a package deal w/ the auger power unit and I consider it money well spent.

Made putting in fence poles into Hard Clay type soil easier. Less then 1 day to do a 72ft fence.

tip tends to get clogged. top pipe is thin metal and eventually ripped off the drive stem at the point where the screw goes through to secure it to the stem. They should use thicker steel at that stress point. Works great for small residential digging jobs.
Pros: Easy to Use
Cons: Not Durable
