Looking for an Auger? These 3 Tips Will Help You Buy the Right One, Monroe, Connecticut

Unless you have extensive experience with a wide variety of outdoor power tools, items like augers might be completely foreign to you. Thankfully, you're not alone, and a few tips can make finding one much easier. L & R Power Equipment is Monroe, CT’s most reliable source for power and hand tools of all sizes. Here, they offer insightful advice, so you can dig right into your project.  

Augers come in handy whenever you need to dig uniform holes for a project, but the number of options on the market can be overwhelming. Consider the following tips to narrow down your search: 

  • augerThink of the Project's Size: Are you installing a small enclosure on your property, or do you have a more labor-intensive project in mind? Handheld augers are excellent for a variety of tasks, but you'll have to ensure they offer the digging power your job requires. There are heavier options out there, but for the best results, you’ll need more than one operator.
  • Make up for a Lack of Manpower: Unfortunately, calling on others for assistance isn't always an option. When a job demands something stronger, tractor-mounted augers can lighten the load and make up for a lack of manpower. However, you need to find one that will work with your particular tractor before you make a decision. 
  • Consider Future Uses: When in doubt, don't forget about future uses that might arise for your auger. Just because you have a relatively minor job now doesn't mean you won't need a heavy-duty solution in the future. By investing in a high-performance machine like STIHL's BT 131, you can enjoy an efficient tool with a long life and an abundance of professional applications.

Obtaining your own tool now will save you money in the long run, so take your time and make the purchase count. If you have any other questions, get in touch with the experts at L & R Power Equipment.
