power auger
 
so I need a power auger and will need it for some time. I have decided to purchase one. To pick up what I would consider to be a recognized brand from say norther tool or other its an ardisam earthquake for 190 + a 8"bit for 140 $330 total + tax

They have them on ebay for a little bit less with more. My concern is the ones on ebay are generic items, meaning I doubt I would ever be able to find parts for them. That said, the reviews on the northern tool model are not so hot

Thoughts?

free shipping with a 6 and 10" bit $270


another on ebay for 349, with 4, 6, 8 and 10inch bits

I own an Earth Quake and it's worked fine for years.
It came with a 6" bit, I took it off and replaced it with an 8" and have never once needed the 6" again.
A tool that you can not get parts for is a poor boat anchor.

I've only rented them. Why not go to the local rental store or Home Depot and see what thay use? You may even be able to buy one that has a few houras on it.
