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
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.
