RotoShovel Digs Clean Holes Fast
“Our new RotoShovel is a handheld cordless auger that comes with its own built-in shovel to scoop soil out of the ground as the hole is dug,” says Rick Goren, Fishers, Ind.
The RotoShovel measures 22 in. long and weighs just 4 lbs. It comes with a rubber grip at one end that you hold while digging, and an 8-in. long, 3-in. dia. auger with an attached, removable metal shovel. Power is supplied by a 12-volt, lithium-ion rechargeable battery. The auger can be operated with a variable speed in forward or reverse. A thumb switch is used to turn the auger on or off, and a keyless chuck is used to change the auger bit.
“It has a lot of torque with the planetary gear set and makes quick work out of digging holes, no matter what the soil is like,” says Goren. “The auger’s sharp edges will cut through even hard, compacted dirt.”
He says many women will prefer the RotoShovel to an auger powered by a cordless drill. “You don’t have to worry about twisting your hand or wrist while digging because you’re holding with both hands. Also, the shovel adds stability to help keep the auger from twisting.”
Sells for $139.95 plus S&H.
