Don’t just make a hole – make a statement. STIHL augers and drills are engineered to stand out from the rest, combining power, portability and precision. Their gasoline-powered engines deliver the force you need wherever the job takes you, especially when electrical outlets are nowhere to be found.

STIHL augers and drills are lightweight and ready to use – and possess the kind of technology that prompt professional landscapers and contractors to choose STIHL for their handheld outdoor power equipment needs.

From mass flower plantings and fence and dock construction to building repair and pest control – even core drilling in concrete – these versatile tools help make life much easier, especially for those working with them.

Note: STIHL recommends use of fuel with no more than 10% ethanol content. Using fuel with greater than 10% ethanol content may cause damage to your equipment and may void your STIHL warranty. Learn More…

    Great auger!
    Honest Pest Solutions uses the BT 45 to install all of our termite baiting systems. It is a great auger for termite and pest control companies. Not heavy, uses different auger bits and sizes. It will pay for its self in no time at all. The good news if that is what you use it for, it is a cheaper option than the bigger augers. With a 3" drill head the BT 45 has no problem going 12"-18" deep. Even in the Georgia red clay.

    multi use property owners must have tool.
    Used for fence post in some pretty tough, compacted, & a bit rocky dirt . The BT45 kicked butt! chewed through dirt well beyond its purposed intention. Also worked wonders repurposed as a soil mixer just add amendments and let the BT45 go to work. It mixes soil like a kitchen mixer.

    Solid performer
    Bought this auger to support our custom mailbox business and it’s done a solid job. Quality and reliability are key for our business. This is why we went with Stihl over other augers that were much less expensive. Cutting through undisturbed soil,clay, gravel and smaller roots is no problem with the 8 inch auger bit. A hole takes only a minute or so to complete. Great job Stihl team!!!

    Power
    Used one in Canada fishing, we punched through 3 ft of ice on lake Winnipeg with no trouble what so ever. The nice thing when I buy one, is that it doubles for summer work as well as winter fun.

    I highly recommend this post holder auger!!
    Huge time saver, dependable, more then enough power, light weight and one main important feature, The safety bar!! I was putting in some post holes in ground with hard clay with rocks and tree roots. Instead of causing serious injury (broken wrist or jerking your shoulder out of socket) or just kicking me off the digger the auger stops, but the motor will still runs. Saved my Beacon!! I research several post hole diggers, with out naming them, they were all less expensive, no safety devise, ... read more larger motors but cheaply built. I would rather spend more but save money down the road and have a piece of equipment that will give me years of service. Not to mention I would rather buy from a dealer ( Allseasons power equipment in Eugene Ore Great Folks with super Service!) then if there are any issues you have a trusted dealer that can help you out!!

    Yes, its worth paying more for a Stihl
    This will be one part of a two part review for the Stihl BT131 earth auger. I am a fence contractor in Austin, Texas, which means that I deal with a wide variety of digging conditions. On the west side there is nothing but limestone, on the east side clay or black soil, and quite a few areas with a mix of clay, dirt and limestone chunks that were graded back into the yard after home construction was completed. So I bought the Stihl auger head but thought I would save some money by using some ... read more auger bits i already had for a much cheaper machine using a splined adapter. The machine worked and ran well, but I felt like I should be getting more speed and ease of digging. So, I bit the bullet and went back in to my dealer (HIll Country Outdoor Power) and picked up the Stihl brand 5.9" auger bit. Completely different experience! The downforce I had to exert to get the auger to dig seemed almost cut in half, and the speed of diggin was at least 50% faster. I was actually digging into compacted road base, with loose rocks and caliche for the first 12" and this auger bit had NO PROBLEM digging through the packed rock. And of course digging through the underlying soil was a joke. To be honest, I was very skeptical of the usefulness of this machine and auger combo because of how small and light it is. VERY surprised by the performance and capability of the BT 131 and auger bits by Stihl. I know it won't dig in solid limestone, but for any other condition you can't go wrong.

    The Stihl earth auger (post hole digger) is great! Lightweight and easy to handle!
    I have used three other brands of gas powered post hole diggers and the Stihl is the easiest one to use! The clutch break away bar is great also. When the digger catches while digging, the break away bar will touch your leg and stop the auger from turning and is easy on your hands and arms. The only item that I would like to see changed is the length of the 6" inch auger. If it was about 3 inches longer the hole would be just about the right depth for my application. Stihl does make an 18" long ... read more extension but it would be nice if they could make 3" and 6" extensions available!

    Great Choice For Homeowners/Professionals
    Needed a Tool for Drilling Holes For Our Post and Beam Home. Lots Of 3/4" and 1" Holes To Drill and Did Not have and Power to the Property Yet. Drilled about 50 Holes So Far and Very Please with the Machine. Also Purchased the Carrying Strap, and Both Stihl Drill Bits From My Dealer. Very Helpful and Knowledgeable about the Product. Our Dealer Also Had a Drill For Me to Try Right on Hand Before i Bought It. That Was a No Brainer Once i Saw the Capabilities Were.

    All the power you need to drill holes!
    I have owned my BT45 since STIHL came out with it! I have never had ANY trouble drilling holes with the BT45. It makes for a very convenient power tool where you don't have electricity or the battery wears down on your cordless drill. I have helped friends build deer stands in many a hunting spot, and they always ask for my BT45! The only thing I have ever put into my drill is GAS! Very dependable,powerful,gas powered,enjoyable to use STIHL tool. I would recommend the BT45 to anyone needing more ... read more than a disappointing battery powered drill!
