Soil is very compact and potentially rocky, I need to get down several feet. I have at least 5 footer holes to dig.
Thinking of buying a cheap corded 1/2 drill and 18 inch long auger bit set and considering throw away - doesn't matter if I destroy.
This would be for loosening soil. My understanding is that a full size auger bit will not work on anything but a gas-powered drill.
Will a wood auger bit work in this scenario?
I would loosen the soil with the drill and shovel out.
