Excellent bulb planting auger that makes bulb planting very easy
This is a wonderful tool. It makes bulb planting very easy and straight forward. It digs holes deep enough for tulips and daffodils. I have a good cordless drill and it was very simple to mount and control. In reasonably loose soil I could drill down to the desired depth, stop the drill and pull it out of the hole and it would clear the dirt out of the hole so that bulb placement was very easy. It also meant that I could plant very close to existing plants without disturbing their roots. I would recommend it to anyone, especially if you failed to think about the planting part when you ordered your bulbs!

Do you have a 1.5 inch auger bit (long shank maybe 18 inches or so)?
David on Jul 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We do not sell an auger with those specifications at this time.
Is there an extension for the bulb planting bit to make it 24" long?
noah on Feb 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The correct part number for the 3 x 24" bit is model 745203. Please visit to view this item.
In A TANAKA AD, they show this bit being used with a hand held, small electric augur. but I cannot find it anywhere. Help? The person in the ad is holding it, about the size of a basketball or a bit larger, with one hand, close to the ground, with this bulb planting big in it, and it is exactly what I am looking for.

BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do not sell any electric augers. All of the augers that we carry are going to be gas powered.
