This unit is considered a one man unit and the auger is driven hydraulically. Benefits of this machine is safety and power to run through the hardest ground. That said we have a few rocks in our area and they cause issues with success. Wise to have a 5′ crow bar on hand to get those pesky ground knots out of the way. They come with a tow bar that hooks to a 2″ ball and we have augers from 6-12″ and you can get down 4′ with use of an extension.
Whether you are fencing, decking or drilling test holes these 2 man units are strong and robust. You can do up to 12″ hole with them but remember it is up to the operator to hold tight when you hit a root or rock. We suggest 10″ bit max for these because the drilling in our area is a bit rough. If the job is big or digging is tough you might consider the 1 man hydraulic unit or the mini loader with the auger attachment.
Over time your lawn builds up a layer of thatch which act as a barrier to water and air penetration into soil. the concept of the de-thatcher is similar to an aggressive rake with a hard back garden rake taking the layer of thatch up off the soil. Don’t be alarmed by the appearance as the lawn will fill back in as the nutrients are able to sink in. You will find this to work best if you wait until your grass has greened up after winter and can be done at any point after that providing you supply enough moisture to help it recover.
The Honda 501 series tiller offers the dig and power required to deep turn your vegetable bed or turn up a new one. It also works very well to turn your lawn for re-seeding. If you are making a new garden consider taking the sod off with a sod cutter first to reduce the effort to till as well as the roots that you turn back into the soil.
