The bulb auger is designed for ordinary household drills. Although the primary purpose of a bulb auger is for bulb planting, there are a wide variety of uses for garden augers. You can: dig holes for vegetable or flower planting, drill pilot holes for easier installation of tree or grade stakes, deep root water, aerate or liquid fertilize trees, and turn and aerate compost piles.
You must supply your own drill to use with the auger. Typically any corded 3/8'' drill or larger will have plenty of power to drive the bulb planter. However, if using a cordless drill, it's best if your drill has at least 18 volts of power.
