BT 131
A high performance and safe auger perfect for professionals.

Product Description

The STIHL BT 131 earth/ice auger is a high performance and lightweight tool professionals need for post-hole digging, fence installation, large planting projects, environmental restoration and construction projects. Featuring a powerful, fuel-efficient engine and a larger fuel tank than previous models, this auger works longer with fewer refuels. It also features a vertical pleated air filter for improved air supply quality and extended service life. Its semi-automatic choke lever enables a simplified starting procedure that reduces the chance of flooding, while the STIHL Quickstop® auger brake is designed to automatically stop the auger bit from turning if it hits a hard underground impediment. With an ergonomic design, the BT 131 delivers control and comfort while reducing fatigue. Using an optional STIHL ice auger bit, this auger is ideal for ice fishing and professional applications such as construction in icy conditions. Don’t miss out on this auger that combines power and performance.

Reviews

BT 131 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldnt ask for More I'm a 60 year old female who decided to install the earth anchors for my new shed myself. I've always been one to do anything I can myself. Well turned out that the shed required ten 30" anchors. I tried twisting one all the way down but couldn't get in down further than about 24 inches. I rented this auger and, wow, am so glad I did. It is extremely easy to use, very light, and started up after 2nd pull each time. I had all of the holes done in no time. Worked like a charm. If I had the need to buy one, this Stihl BT131 would be it. You wont be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
