5inch (12.5cm) wide by 28inch (70cm) long allows you to be standing whilst drilling the holes in soil. Being a larger auger it is recommend you use a 240v or petrol powered Drill (13mm chuck) with side handle and clutch to protect you against kickback. It has a common 13mm (1/2inch) hex head.
Popular uses are:
Rapidly planting 5inch potsize plant stock inground. (Also suitable for planting smaller tubestock where you want to improve the soil by adding compost to the hole)
Drilling multiple holes and moving sideways between them to cultivate the soil deeply
Drilling a 125mm diameter tunnel under a path
Tree Planting and applying fertiliser tablets deep into soil.
Post Hole digging to exactly 5inches wide with minimal external soil disturbance.
Mixing barrow loads of Concrete/mortar
Mixing fertiliser into soil mix
Digging a trench for plumbing and irrigation - by drilling holes to required depth consecutively along the line and then remove any remaining soft soil with a trenching shovel or by hand.
N.B. We hope it is pretty obvious... but we better say it - The price does not include the Dewalt Drill shown in the demonstration images. The Power Planter can fit onto any standard Australian drills with a 13mm chuck. (eg. Ryobi, Bosch, Black and Decker, Hitachi, etc )
