Stihl says its BT 130 handheld auger’s enhanced features make post-hole digging, fence installation, planting and large construction jobs easier and more comfortable.
“Users can stand upright while drilling, making this a great companion for big projects and everyday long-term use,” said Stihl Inc. product manager Daniel Pherson. “We’ve also introduced new auger bits that are designed specifically to be used with Stihl augers. They have an offset tooth instead of an installed plate which helps prevent lockups."
