Earthquake Auger

I bought this unit on sale at an amazing price. It came with an 8" bit which is great but a little big for most farm fence post applications. The unit is awesome for a one man operation. I was impressed with the power and the digging capability. I highly recommend this unit and am happy I purchased it. If it was a perfect world, Peavey Mart would also order in the other sizes of bits for the auger. It appears they only offer the 8", which I find odd since the 8" is what comes with the unit.. Oh well.....great deal!!
