I was expecting great things from this product. My daughter is a landscaper and had 60 flats of annuals to plant.
Unfortunately, it only works on well tilled soil. I couldn’t even make a small dent in my garden bed. Sorry, it has to be returned. Poor design!


Not impressed

The dirt must have to be really soft because it didn’t work for me.

The Garden Hole Digging Drill Bit did NOT work well. I was thoroughly disappointed. In theory it is a good tool; in practice it did not work very well.

As soon as it came in contact with a root, twig or various burried items (that one would expect in the ground) the tool got hung up, jammed, bound up.

It did make a good shape hole; but the shape of a hole is not that relative or important for planting vegetables.

I would NOT recommend this tool and give it a failing rating.

As I decided to plant six inch plants the larger unit described as 12"x 5" x 5" would be needed and I paid the extra ten dollars. After use the following facts were evident, the hole is not as big as indicated and that's because the true dimensions are 12" x 3 3/4" x 3 3/4". Its use in untiled soil only applies if the soil is soft and moist and devoid of small rocks. If the hole had been five inches, a six inch plant would go in the hole. My conclusion, if I had known the true size of this item I would not have purchased it.


Didn't Work for Me

The Maxbit couldn't penetrate the soil in my garden. Hence, it was useless.


Slip Sliding Away

I had high hopes for this tool to help me dig holes in my very dry, hard, clay soil for planting succulents, drought-tolerant and hearty native plants. In reality, because the neck of the Maxbit has no gripping capability when put into the drill, it just stops spinning whenever the slightest resistance is applied, as the drill is activated. It should have some way to be securely locked into the drill. Maybe it works well in powdery soil ... but why would you need such a tool in powdery soil? So ... unfortunately, this goes on my list of relatively useless tools. Sorry, Maxbit makers. Good try: but not quite there. If you add some way to lock it into the drill ... you'd improve the usefulness a hundredfold. Also ... I don't suppose you'd give me my money back, would you?

Keep your money. The worst $50 I ever spent. Digs about 1 inch and then quits. Can not dig through the clay or top soil. Might dig in yogurt? A $50 ornament on my shelf.


Not for my soil

Well built and sturdy. I was so in hopes this would make digging small holes easier for me. However my soil is clay and a little rocky. I just bogged down and immediately was full of soil which was very hard to remove.


Didn’t work for me

I bought this digger last year but didn’t use it until this Spring. It clogged with dirt and took me much longer to dig a hole than it did once I gave up and dug a hole with a hand shovel. I’m disappointed.


Doesn’t work

Total bust. It just glogs with dirt.

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.
