Tree Auger Bits come loaded with design features to make them extremely useful for their specific application.

Continue to read as we dive a bit deeper into the specifics of these amazing auger bits.
Advantages of a Tree Auger Bit
The great thing about a Tree Planting Auger Bit is that it's specifically designed to excel at a single application: the planting of trees and shrubs. These bits don't boast multiple functions or cross-over performance, they simply do the job as advertised and help both professional and amateur tree planters complete more work faster. The tapered design of the bits, coupled with drilling teeth located on both the inside and outside of the bit, result in the perfect hole shape for planting trees. With this bit, you can run you skid steer or compact track loader down untold space, leaving a uniform and reliable hole pattern exactly where needed to plant a full nursery of trees. Tree Auger Bits are also excellent at removing soil, leaving behind a useful planting area, and removing the soil from the hole, without any soil returning from whence it came. This saves a great deal of time and energy knowing that your earth drilling operation will deliver the expected result without having to double-down on machine time, or rely on manual labor to finish the job properly.
