      I bought this in store to start a fencing project at home. I wasn't about to attempt this with regular post hole diggers! Out of the box, all I had to do was attach the auger with the provided.hardware and tools. 10 minutes to review the manual and out to the fence line. This auger started the first time and each time afterwards. I was astonished by the power this unit has! Some holes took only a minute to dig, while some harder ones, maybe 5 minutes. This unit had plenty of power to tackle most of the project. A few holes had clay that was too hard and the auger just shaved the clay. That would have taken a good while to dig. I soaked those holes and that worked much better. One serious word of advise - wear a good pad on your left thigh. This thing is really strong, and if you hit rocks or veins of clay, it's hard to prevent it from kicking back and smacking the tar out of your leg.
