Hole digger

11/29/2018 by Lawrence

Works well in sandy soil. Had trouble in my bed with river stone.

Pretty Cool

5/31/2018 by Kitty

With the proper power drill it works great but there are a few things you need to be aware of if you have clay soil.
You need to have a very good grip on the drill or it will fly out of your hand and you could hurt yourself. I still have a large briuse on my hand.
Once I figured that out, all was good except the clay sticks to the drill bit and can't dig much more until you clean it.
Now that is my only complain: it isn't easy to clean the clay off. You spend more time cleaning it than using it.

Handy Garden Tool

5/28/2018 by Leslie

Suppose it works better in some soil than others, but does make quick work of digging a hole for planing. Can see how it would be very good for doing a lot of planting.

Disappointed

5/28/2019 by John

This is advertised as 4 inch diameter. So I am expecting it to give me a 4 inch hole. To my surprise it does not. In using a caliper to measure it I find that the base is only 2 23/32 inches wide and the top is 3 1/4 inches wide. This will not give me a 4 inch diameter hole. The description does not match the product. If you describe it as a 4 inch diameter tool that is what I expect so I do not have to force the plant into the hole. Thank you.

I'd give it a 6 out of 10.

In soft soil it works as described but in hard soil it didn't work.
I will have to try a stronger drill to see if that makes a difference.

Good with fresh soil

If you are using in soil already in your garden area it is hard to use but if you stay persistent you can get a good enough hole to use other tools to help get the size you need to plant

Good for small holes

7/25/2018 by Catherine

Fine for planting small, previously potted (or just purchased) plants. But not for deeper holes as the dirt just fills in behind it.

Garden Drill Bit 4"

6/10/2019 by Christine

I'm disappointed with this products, can't be used when it wet and can't be used when soil getting dried. It jumped around when I push down to dirt isn't lose. IT LOOK LIKE A PIECE A CAKE TO DO IT.

Not impressed

5/12/2019 by Bob

I used my new Maxbit to plant 300 sunpatiens. If the soil was new or real soft it worked fine.
Beaver soil I need to use my other drill bit. Maxbit needs to be sharper to cut through clay or header soil. I would not recommend this product. The concept is good but just not able to handle the Kansas soil.

Nice to have

Not really needed but it was nice to minimize bending.

The THE MAXBIT Story

Don’t dig holes in the garden—drill them.

Easy Digging

The idea to create a garden hole digger came to Maker Michele Morton when she was helping folks in her community plant their gardens. She made The MAXBIT drill attachment to do the digging job quickly, easily, and more neatly.

The patented curved angles of the bit compress dirt into the bottom and sides of the hole, resulting in a perfectly round, flat-bottomed hole each time. This compressing action eliminates the pile of dug-out dirt for you to deal with when you’re done. The bit and its extension piece fit on most common power drills, and are made in West Point, Mississippi with ultra-tough
steel that’s powder coated to prevent rust.

The MAXBIT works in tilled or untilled soil, and makes holes to fit standard 4” or 6” potted plants. With the power of a drill doing the digging, planting a garden is easier—and faster—than ever.
