Good, not great-doesn’t really push dirt aside like a corkscrew design

Product is good but does not push dirt aside like other products


Great gizmo

Makes it easier for me to dig using my hand drill despite my arthritis.

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


Pretty Cool

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

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.


I'll find some use for it

It works very well on flower pots or any other location with a loose peat and perlite mixture or similar, e.g. what one could easily do just by using one's hand but, for natural soil it's a non-starter unless using a commercial rated corded drill and at that, expect to wear the soil away instead of moving it out of the way.

It looks cool though so I'll find something to use it for.

I was so disappointed and did not pay enough attention to the reviews especially the one about the maxbit going only so far in the ground. This is exactly what happens - if the soil is the least bit moist it gets clogged. Great concept.

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

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.
